    These were sooooooo delicious, but I did a few things different. Like other users, I cut the potatoes into smaller pieces, about an inch. They only took about 40 minutes to cook. I was out of oregano, so I just stuck with the olive oil, salt and pepper, but I added 2 garlic cloves (crushed), and half of a yellow onion, diced. OMG was it good! Thanks for the recipe. I've never done sweet potatoes like this, so I'm very glad I found this recipe. ***Update*** I made these with some cheddar cheese sprinkled on top for the last 15 minutes or so. So yummy!  -  12 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this recipe exactly as written. The only thing I changed was that I cut the peices a little smaller ( 1.5 inch cubes) I covered them for the first 20 minutes then baked for an additional 30 minutes. They were SO DELICIOUS! I love oregano and I was surprised to have it on sweet potatoes, but it was fantastic. I shuffled the potatoes around 3 times during baking so that they wouldn't be hard on the bottoms.  -  22 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    After following the directions, I thought there was to much oregano taste. So I tried it again by bumping up the salt & pepper to 1 teaspoon each and the oregano to 1/2 a teaspoon. I dump everything into a large bowl and mix it all by had to get the potatoes well coated, then bake as directd. I do not turn them over. YUM. Now it is one of my favorites.  -  17 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
