Spiral Sweet Potatoes

Spiral sweet potatoes

Oh no! Thanksgiving is almost here and you have no idea what to make. Have no fear, we've got what is likely one of the *easiest* recipes for you to whip up. It'll also look pretty on the Thanksgiving table. Get ready for whispers of "ohhh, who made that?" Surprise - it was you.

The Ingredients

  • 2.5 lb sweet potatoes, finely sliced (roughly 4 or 5 - this can change depending on how large they are)
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ¼ onion powder
  • ¾ tsp salt (adjust to taste)
  • ¼ tsp black pepper (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tbsp rosemary leaves, finely chopped

The Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Brush the skillet base and sides with a little olive oil.
  2. Slice potatoes 3-4mm thick. Using a mandolin will speed up this process, but it isn’t necessary.
  3. In a large bowl, add the potatoes, 2 tbsp of melted butter plus 1 tbsp olive oil, rosemary, and the other seasonings. Toss well with hands, separating the slices so they are all coated with oil and seasonings.
  4. Layer the potatoes in the skillet in a circular pattern, overlapping the slices.
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender.
  6. Remove from the oven and turn up the temperature to 430°F. Remove foil and brush the potatoes with remaining 1 tbsp of oil and 1 tbsp of butter.
  7. Bake uncovered for about 30 minutes, or until the tops are at the desired crispness, and potatoes are cooked through.
  8. To serve, scatter with more rosemary leaves and a pinch of sea salt flakes if desired. Best if served immediately!
