Baked Sweet Potato Slices

Forgot to share this. I mentioned a recipe for baked sweet potatoes a few posts back.  So here it is!

My biggest food weakness is potatoes.  As a small girl my family gave me a nickname that is silly; it’s Italian, and basically it means I am consumed with all things potato: PATATARA.   WHICH IS TRUE!  I could eat potatoes every single day, a few times a day, and I’d still want more.  Cook them and just hand them over people!

Baked Sweet Potato Slices

  • 2 lbs washed and scrubbed sweet potatoes- cut into rounds (see photo)
  • 1 tbsp sweet paprika
  • ¼  tspn thyme
  • ¼ tspn rosemary
  • ¼ dried lavender (if you have it, if not you can omit)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

You’ll need a flat baking sheet covered in parchment paper.  Using the paper will guarantee they won’t stick.

Cut the ends of the potato and slice thin.
Cut the ends of the potato and slice thin.  I rarely peel my potatoes, unless they are green, because I love the rustic look of it cooked.  But this is totally a personal choice.  If you keep the peel on SCRUB THEM!

Preheat oven to 375° F

Lightly drizzle 1 tbsp of the oil on the bottom of the pan.  Arrange potatoes on top.

Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and herbs. Drizzle with olive oil.

Bake until potatoes are tender, about 35 minutes.

Voila!  Baked Sweet Potatoes!
Voila! Baked Sweet Potatoes!
