    I love a sweet potato casserole, but for daily consumption I just love them roasted! No oil needed!

  • Marcia1206  on  November 20, 2016

    I love my potatoes roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper and rosemary

  • FireRunner2379  on  November 20, 2016

    I like baked oven fries, thick cut! I slice the potato in 8 wedges and coat them with olive oil, salt and pepper. They're baked at 425 for about 45 minutes, flipping every 20 or so. Lately, I've been coating them with duck fat and have been pleased with the results. They come out of the oven crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside!

    Love potatoes in any form, but simple is usually better. My favorite preparation is to toss small fingerling or quartered red potatoes in olive oil and coarse kosher salt and then roast in the oven at a high temp. I like them crisp on the outside and creamy soft on the inside.

  • zschoppa  on  December 26, 2016
