    followed method for easy roast sweet potato but think 220c is too high. The onion tips burnt and the garlic had to be removed as it burnt. a lower temp would be better  -  14 Jan 2017


    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.  -  09 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  16 Nov 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
