These were sooooooo delicious, but I did a few things different. Like other users, I cut the potatoes into smaller pieces, about an inch. They only took about 40 minutes to cook. I was out of oregano, so I just stuck with the olive oil, salt and pepper, but I added 2 garlic cloves (crushed), and half of a yellow onion, diced. OMG was it good! Thanks for the recipe. I've never done sweet potatoes like this, so I'm very glad I found this recipe. ***Update*** I made these with some cheddar cheese sprinkled on top for the last 15 minutes or so. So yummy!
I love sweet potatoes but this dish didn't wow me. The potatoes took forever to cut up. I sub'd rosemary for the oregano (not a fan of oregano). Stirred a few times during the baking time for even cooking. Not sure what I could do differently but I imagine this would taste better if caramelized some.
I made this recipe exactly as written. The only thing I changed was that I cut the peices a little smaller ( 1.5 inch cubes) I covered them for the first 20 minutes then baked for an additional 30 minutes. They were SO DELICIOUS! I love oregano and I was surprised to have it on sweet potatoes, but it was fantastic. I shuffled the potatoes around 3 times during baking so that they wouldn't be hard on the bottoms.
After following the directions, I thought there was to much oregano taste. So I tried it again by bumping up the salt & pepper to 1 teaspoon each and the oregano to 1/2 a teaspoon. I dump everything into a large bowl and mix it all by had to get the potatoes well coated, then bake as directd. I do not turn them over. YUM. Now it is one of my favorites.
These were a big hit with my fiance. He hates sweet potatoes, but I pressed on and tried them anyway. I'm glad I did because he requests these time and again. The only thing I do differently is to poke holes in the potatoes and put them in the microwave for a few minutes to soften them up before cutting into cubes. The first time I made them it took me 30 minutes to cut up two large sweet potatoes and my hands were cursing me afterwards.
Great recipe and a nice change usual sweet, sugary sweet potato side dishes! I love sweet potatoes so roasting them like this was not only tasty, but just as easy as wrapping them in foil and baking them. I cut the potatoes into small pieces, opted for rosemary vs. oregano and sprayed my baking dish with a little Pam before baking. I also upped my oven temp. to 400. I turned them a few times during baking and they were done in about 45 minutes. Excellent with grilled pork tenderloin.
Excellent! What a great healthy way to make sweet potatoes. I agree with others that it was nice to see a sweet potatoe recipe that did not call for brown sugar! The whole family loved this (husband and 21 month old daughter) I will make this again and again. I used rosemary instead of oregano and season salt instead of regular salt. **** I have made this recipe with both the oregano as called for and the rosemary as many reviewers recommend and the rosemary is MUCH better.
Love this. I was looking for a healthy way to prepare sweet potatoes, and this is it. Tastes nice as written, but I now add Hungarian Paprika to give it some kick. Cayenne works as well. Also, if you want just a little sweetness to this, without making the candied version, some carmelized onions mixed in after baking tastes marvelous!
