My Granny made this for Easter dinner. We were all sitting at the table commenting on how delicious it was. She sat down took a bite and sighed, Ahhh, I'll never make this again. We all told her she was crazy and asked for the recipe.

Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes Haiku: "Yay, no marshmallows! Savory sweet potatoes, glad that I found you!" Super easy recipe and delicious; I left mine in longer, stirring frequently enough that the sweet potatoes browned evenly, but my onions were a little burnt and shrivel-y, which is my bad b/c I didn't cut them into wedges, as directed. I did follow the recipe, other than apparently being a little too dainty w/ my onion cuts. Wow, these were terrific, and how nice that they weren't bathed in brown sugar or some other sticky sweetness. I squashed some of the leftovers (sans onions) for the baby, and she said "gurgle blurgle /smile" as she devoured hers too. Read More

It was tasty but way to oily. I plan to do it again but half the oil. Read More

I omitted the balsamic vinegar (husband hates it) but kept everything else the same. It was DELICIOUS and easy to make. I like that it is a savory sweet potato recipe with few ingredients. It's definitely on our favorites list! Read More

Wonderful way to cook sweet potatoes, not sure why people want to sweeten them up with brown sugar and marshmallows, that's just not appealing to me, they have such a nice sweet flavor on their own. I like this savory rather than sweet recipe. Although I didn't have a vidalia onion, I used a regular yellow onion and it worked just fine, got kind of caramelized after baking for 45 minutes. These go great with pork chops. Read More

Excellent! I made a few changes making this for Christmas dinner: I used 4 potatoes and did not measure how many cups. I used white balsamic vinegar because I didn't have any regular. I slicedabout 1/2 C fresh cranberries in half and added them. Also added about a half cup of chopped pecans. It was delicious & was a nice substitute for sweet potato pie. Read More

We were in a bit of a hurry so I put the potatoes and onion in a microwave safe container with a bit of water and covered for 10 minutes. Then we mixed in the olive oil and garlic and spread potatoes on a cookie sheet and sprinkled with Mrs. Dash. We then baked for 15 minutes. I was AMAZING!!!!! Read More

This was a real nice change from my usual mashed sweet potatoes. The sweet onion combined with the sweet potatoes was really good. I made it on a hot day so I put the ingredients in foil and cooked it on the grill about 35 minutes. Read More

I made this according to the recipe. It was very good but I have a tweak in mind that I'll try the next time I make it. Next time I'll use a little more oil than the recipe calls for and salt/pepper before I put the potatoes in the oven. It's a good easy dish though and will definitely be making it again and again and again. Read More

I tossed the potatoes and onions in a large gallon zipper bag with the EVOO to make sure everything was coated well. Love this recipe! Read More
