Yummy Sweet Taters

Here's my favorite way to prepare sweet taters -

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel and cube 2 large sweet potatos, cut into a 2 inch dice. Meanwhile, pick some fresh rosemary needles, and place into about a third cup of olive oil. Microwave the rosemary needles in the oil until they pop and give up their essence to the oil (about 30 - 45 seconds). Place the sweet taters in a large bowl, pour the oil over, sprinkle generously with kosher salt, stir well to coat. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper so they don't stick terribly, spread taters on the paper and roast for 20 minutes or until the bottoms are browned. Turn each piece and bake again for about 10 minutes to let another side get all crunchy and fabulous.

The insides are melty tender, the outsides are crunchy deliciousness. These don't last long at our house and whole batches have been known to mysteriously disappear when Priscilla and I get together. I hope you try them and enjoy!

Did you happen to teach ML how to make these? Because she taught me to make them, and the boys and I LOVE them! :-)

Yes, Karyn! So glad you and the boys enjoy them - not James? When do you take off for CO? My thoughts are with you!
