Servings: 4


  • 4 small to medium sweet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, melted butter, or a mixture of the two
  • 3-4 tablespoons fresh rosemary (fresh thyme works great, too)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 375° F.
  • Mix olive oil or melted butter (or a mixture!) with the rosemary, salt, and pepper on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Slice sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. Toss them on the prepared pan to coat the skin before turning them cut-side down on the baking pan.
  • Bake until the sweet potatoes feel soft to the touch and the cut sides turn golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes for small potatoes or 30 to 35 minutes for larger ones. Serve warm.
