Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Maple-Thyme Glaze
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a roasted sweet potato recipe that gave us potatoes with a nicely caramelized exterior, a smooth, creamy interior, and an earthy sweetness. We started the sliced potatoes in a cold (versus preheated) oven, covering them with foil, to allow plenty of time for their starches to convert to sugars. We removed the foil after 30 minutes and continued to roast the potatoes until crisp. We had our perfect roasted sweet potato recipe: super-sweet and tender potatoes with a slightly crisp, caramelized exterior.
