This is a simple and delicious recipe, that I will make again. I baked them for 45 minutes, and used 3 very big sweet potatoes in one layer on big pan with low borders. (I adjusted the recipe accordingly, but used about tablespoon of lemon juice instead of teaspoon). item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really easy to make and super tasty! After I took them out of the oven, I drizzled a tiny bit of honey over the top and also squeezed a little bit of lemon. I ended up cooking these a little under an hour and they were perfect- slightly charred in some places but mostly soft and delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! Easy, wonderful flavor, and got a thmbs up from the grandkids, too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So easy and so very good. Double or triple the olive oil mixture and roast other vegetables with the sweet potatoes. I used parsnips, carrots, onion and a little garlic powder. Added some broccoli and bell pepper about 20 minutes into the roasting process. I did not peel the sweet potatoes as there is so much good nutrition in the skins. I think adding some winter squash would be good as well. Will be making this often this fall and winter. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is fabulous! I needed a side dish that would wow everyone and this did the trick. I did not peel the sweet potatoes;just scrubbed and dried them. I used the juice of half a lemon so that was probably more than the recipe called for, but it was delicious! I only baked them 45 minutes turning once halfway through the roasting. This was the easy, home run I was looking for! Thanks, Ellie! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is a great way to prepare sweet potatoes! An amazing flavor that requires very little effort. The carmelization is great! I will make again and experiment with adding a hint of red pepper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was super easy to make and so yummy!! Both my boyfriend and I loved these sweet potatoes. I'll make them again for sure. I served them with Ellie's rice and black bean pilaf and some grilled chicken. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Good! Why don't you add your own recipe to FoodNetwork? You obviously did not care for this one, you had to dress it up so much! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tend to agree. We fail to appreciate the beauty and flavor of simplicity sometimes. In fact, that's why we have the adage, "Too many cooks spoil the broth." Less is often more. :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
