Herb Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Holidays are coming and here is yet another sweet potato recipe. The thyme, garlic and red pepper gives great flavor to the sweet potatoes. Instead of olive oil try using Pam or No Oil. Just spray the slices on both sides then shake them in the zip lock bag with the herbs. Use Yams if you prefer.

Oh Bergy, these turned out so good! I love sweet potatoes, and the herbs were great! I halved the recipe, just to make sure I liked it! Delicious!

I wish I could rate this more than 5 stars! These sweet potatoes were incredible! I was a little hesitant, thinking they may be dry and too herb-tasting. I was wrong! These have an incredible flavor, with a slight crust around the outside and tender, moist potato on the inside. I could eat these cold! I used fresh thyme from my herb garden, which made a difference, so use it if you have it! You must try this recipe - it's incredible!
