This makes a nice side dish. The addition of oregano was a nice change from the usual way I serve sweet potatoes. - 13 Mar 2012


Used different ingredients. Absolutely love these as does my 7 yr old son!! We have tweaked by changing the herbs - we have used Thyme instead of oregano (delicious with Chicken) and rosemary and garlic (scrummy with lamb) - Very very versatile and if left long enough to go slightly crispy very delicious.. I agree with Ruth do not turn them! - 30 Jul 2009


Altered ingredient amounts. After following the directions, I thought there was too much oregano taste. So I tried it again by bumping up the salt & pepper to 1 teaspoon each and the oregano to 1/2 a teaspoon. I dump everything into a large bowl and mix it all by hand to get the potatoes well coated, then bake as directed. I do not turn them over. YUM. Now it is one of my favourites. - 15 Sep 2008
