Rosemary and Garlic Sweet Potatoes

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


  • 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 saucepan 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.
