Roasted Parsley and Thyme Sweet Potatoes

February 26, 2011

I am a sweet potato lover and I eat them for breakfast, snacks and dinner as well.  Sweet potatoes are just good plain but sometimes I will add some goodies to the mix for a change.  This is a winner when you are just not baking them and adding some butter.  This time I had to use dried thyme as I did not have any in the garden (need to fix that immediately), but they were spectacular.
