Thyme Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Rated as 4.79 out of 5 Stars

"Sweet potatoes at their easiest! The potatoes slices need to be in single layer against the pan, not on top of one another. Great for a dinner party! Herbes de Provence with thyme or rosemary sprigs can be used instead of just thyme leaves. Serve warm or at room temperature with sprigs for garnish."

Your recipe submission is fabulous! Thank you so much

These were delectable! The slightly sweet of the potatoes the savory flavor of the thyme and the hint of hot from the red pepper were a perfect combination! Will definitely be making these again!

I made it with fresh rosemary. Very flavorful. And I love garlic so I used 5 cloves with only 3 medium potatoes.
