My Roasted Sweet Potato slices are a fun and unique way to serve this delicious and nutritious carb!
Good morning! I hope you all are having a fabulous week and are staying warm. My driveway is still a solid sheet of ice, but I know many of you have it so much worse so I will try not to complain 🙂
In blog news----> Did everyone catch my big announcement Monday? I'm still pretty excited about the chance to help such a great group!
Today's recipe starts with these beauties!
Who is on team sweet potato?
I, of course, enjoy my Mom’s brown sugar and butter laced casserole once a year at Thanksgiving but the sweet potato can be so much more.
Instead of just baking mine, I slice them in thick pieces and season them to perfection. I use the unexpected combination of thyme and nutmeg. Trust me on this one…
I put my roasted sweet potato slices in a hot stove and end up with a fancy looking side dish that is nothing short of perfection.
Roasted Sweet Potato Slices are quick enough for a weekday meal, but fancy enough to serve guests at a dinner party.
So yes, I’m on team sweet potato all the way!
Roasted Sweet Potato Slices
- 2 medium sweet potatoes
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- ½ teaspoon thyme
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- Cooking Spray
- Preheat oven the 450 degrees.
- Spray a cooking sheet with cooking spray.
- Scrub the sweet potatoes well.
- Cut into half inch slices. You should have about 12 slices between the two potatoes, depending on the size you bought.
- Spread the slices out on a cookies sheet and brush both sides with the olive oil.
- Sprinkle the thyme, nutmeg, salt and pepper evenly across both sides of the slices.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until brown.
I hope you enjoy these and I hope you have a great day.
Tomorrow I'll be back with a fun floral print for Fashion Friday!
Do you eat sweet potatoes outside of Thanksgiving?

Thyme and nutmeg! It sounds like it could be very good. My whole family loves sweet potatoes, but we usually just bake them. Once in a while when we find a great price, we buy a whole lot and try them different ways--this is my favorite!
They are so good!

Me too! Almond. butter. How did I not think of that? yum.............................

Your sweet potatoes look really scrumptious but I also wanted to say that I love your napkin! The colors and print are really pretty and get me excited for spring. Thanks for the recipe!
haha! Thanks! I kind of obsess over which napkins to put with which shots and finding new ones without spending much money 🙂 Thanks for noticing!

Nutmeg and thyme: what a yummy combo!! I haven't had sweet potatoes in a while, and this would be a perfect side to whip up! Thanks!
My kind of cooking!
These look SO good! I'm wondering if the kiddo will try them. (He's so picky these days...)
They are kind of fun circle-ly things??? so maybe???
Ohhh, these look so good! I always cube my sweet potatos.. think I'll try this way next time!! - http://www.domesticgeekgirl.com

mmmmmmm roasted sweet potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes! These look Delish!
These look fantastic! I have made something similar before but not in a while...now I am craving them! Yum!
It's so cold here I just want to eat all the carbs!!
Ahhh sweet potatoes are another favorite of mine! I'll definitely try your recipe. I love roasting sweet potatoes, we usually just cut them up into chunks and toss with olive oil, sea salt and pepper. I bet the nutmeg in your recipe gives a great flavor! We eat them year-round for sure, not just at Thanksgiving.
This is a fun way to switch it up!

Love me some SP's and you know with those nachos I certainly do! Lately I've been having them with beet hummus on top!
Well that sounds fabulous!
Sue @ This Mama Runs for Cupcakes says
I am actually not a big fan if you can believe it. I LOVE sweet potato fries but that's really the only way. It's a texture thing for me!
Oh no! At least you like the fries! 🙂

I have never been a fan of sweet pototoes, but this looks like it would be worth a try. I was unable to comment yesterday, but I really liked your advice and the pics of your yoga poses.
Thanks Blane! These are pretty yummy!
