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 πŸ™‚

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!

Roasted Sweet Potato Slices - Easy and healthy way to eat sweet potatoes! Little to no prep work!

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…

Roasted Sweet Potato Slices

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 a fresh and delicious way to eat your sweet potatoes.
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 30 mins
Course Side Dish
Servings 2 -4


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 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.


Choose sweet potatoes that are uniform in size for the best slices. If you end up with more or less than 12 slices, adjust the seasonings accordingly.

    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!

    YUM julie! I have never thought to cook sweet potatoes in slices like that, but I bet they would be lovely. I could eat sweet potatoes every day and never be bored. They are so good!!! Have you ever had them with almond butter? Thats my favorite way of having them πŸ™‚

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.
