Garlic-Herb Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Yield Makes 6 servings
We cut our sweet potatoes into 1- to 1 1/2-inch-thick pieces, but you can also slice them into wedges if desired. Another idea is to think of them as you would french fries, and serve them with sandwiches made from leftover turkey.


  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon roasted garlic-and-herb seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

How to Make It

  1. Cut potatoes into 1- to 1 1/2-inch-thick pieces. Stir together mayonnaise and seasoning in a large bowl; add potatoes, tossing to coat. Place potatoes in a single layer in a lightly greased broiler pan or 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.

  2. Bake at 450° for 40 to 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender and browned, stirring once after 20 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish, and sprinkle with parsley.

  3. Chipotle-Spiced Roasted Sweet Potatoes: Substitute 1 tablespoon salt-free chipotle seasoning blend and 1/2 teaspoon salt for roasted garlic-and-herb seasoning and 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro for parsley. Proceed with recipe as directed.
