    Altered ingredient amounts. After following the directions, I thought there was too 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 hand to get the potatoes well coated, then bake as directed. I do not turn them over. YUM. Now it is one of my favourites.  -  29 Sep 2008


    I made this recipe exactly as written. The only thing I changed was that I cut the peices a little smaller -- 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.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Very easy recipe, seems sweet potatoes are pretty flavourful without having to do too much to them and this recipe proves that. I followed a couple of the other member suggestions and it turned out excellent. I cut them up a bit smaller than they suggest and let them cook for about 1hr 10 min just to make sure they cooked through.  -  29 Sep 2008
