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.

I have always loved savory dishes featuring sweet potatoes. Roasting them brings out the natural sweetness and flavor which is enhanced with the thyme and garlic. I could make a meal of just this fish. Thank you hhsandy! Read More

I LOVED this recipe and will make it again, again and AGAIN! It was sweet and savory with a hint of heat. I didn't follow the recipe exactly (as I hate measuring). Instead, I cubed one large sweet potato (which was just enough for my husband and me), tossed in some olive oil, heaping tbsp. of jarred roasted minced garlic, pinch of salt, couple of shakes of red pepper flakes and didn't have any fresh thyme on hand so just substituted it for ground thyme. IT WAS AH-MAZING! I cooked it at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. Read More

Love this recipe and how it makes the potatoes' flavor savory instead of sweet. A great option to make the sweet potato. more versatileI. I cut the potatoes into chunks as another reviewer suggested and they were done in about 25 minutes. Definitely will make this again. Read More

the garlic and thyme combo was delicious but I really wasn't expecting it to be so filling! I had 8 ready for a side dish for 3 people and we couldn't finish it! It was really delicious though I will definitely make this amazing recipe again! Read More

I cubed the sweet potatoes instead of cutting into rounds. These were a BIG hit at Thanksgiving. These potatoes will definitely be served regularly at my house. Read More

After we made this we tried this with rosemary and garlic instead of the thyme (because we had a surplus of rosemary and no thyme) and it was amazing! Read More
