With rosemary and garlic, this flavorful recipe might be your new favorite side dish.

Rosemary And Garlic Sweet Potatoes


  • 3 medium sweet potatoes or yams, washed clean

  • 1 large sprig rosemary

  • 3 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced or grated

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  2. Using a mandoline, thinly slice the sweet potatoes, about 1/4 inch thick, leaving the skin still on.

  3. In a small 6-inch cast iron skillet or baking dish, shingle the potatoes in a circle, one next to the other. Place a few smaller ones in the middle. Next, tuck some rosemary leaves between every 5 or 6 slices. Make sure to wedge them about halfway down.

  4. Next, in a small sauce pot melt the butter with the oil. Add in the garlic, a large pinch of salt and a little pepper. Stir to combine and finish with some freshly grated nutmeg. Once the butter has melted, pour the mixture over the potatoes.

  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked through, a toothpick should easily pierce the flesh, and are slightly crispy on top. Check every so often to make sure they aren't burning.

  6. Serve immediately.
