  2. Sounds superbly simple. Maybe I’ll try it with sweet potatoes. You’d want to put the slices in one layer, right?

  3. Thank you for the comments.

    Rosie – I’m glad to see you back online, I hope you are feeling much better now! :)

    Olga – not really, you can put them on the tray any how… just stir few times during baking. I tired also with sweet potatoes before, you can take a look at it here:

  4. Delicious, we always prepared in this way, but use canola oil.

  5. I prepare potatoes like this a lot, they’re great as you can add lots of different flavours too such as Cajun spice or herbs.
