    Delicious. The combo of rosemary and sweet potatoes is great. I recommend letting the rosemary sit in the oil in the bowl for a few minutes, and then tossing the sweet potatoes in that mixture. This way the rosemary sticks well to the potatoes and the flavor has a chance to bloom in the oil. - 3/15/07

    We tried this last night...it was wonderful. Only change we made was to zap potatoes for 3 min in microwave before putting them in oven...then into oven for 10 minutes. Wonderful ! - 7/22/08

    I've always loved anything 'sweetpotato'...Try parboiling the sweet potatoes for about 10-15 mins., to soften before baking. These taste great with baked cinnamon chicken! - 7/1/09

    The flavor combination of these ingredients is definitely tastey, however I had trouble getting the potatoes to cook evenly. I think next time I'll cook a short time in a closed baking dish to help them steam cook a bit and then I'll take off lid. - 5/6/08

    This is one of my favorites. You can also use white potatoes but the sweets are the best! Another version is roasting cauliflower, squash or asparagus. - 4/3/10

    This was REALLY GOOD! I've never been a fan of the candied sweet potatoes and no one had ever made them any differently, so I had no idea of any other way to make these. Not *just* for Thanksgiving! This will be in my repetoire for sure! - 11/22/07
