I rely on fresh rosemary to season this dish. The herb comes through very well in the unique side dish, and garlic gives the tender potatoes a savory twist.—Michelle Bishop, Peru, Indiana

"Good but I thought it lacked flavor. I used dried rosemary since that's what I had on hand and I ended up doubling it. I also doubled the salt, although that was a little too salty! But to me it definitely needed more than 1/2 a teaspoon. Would love to try with fresh rosemary and next time will mince the garlic."

"This is our favorite sweet potato dish. It was nice to not have all the fat and calories from butter, brown sugar etc."
