  • 4 Large Sweet Potatoes Sliced into 1-1.5 inch thickness
  • 1/2 cup Butter melted
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped rosemary Fresh
  • 1/2 tsp. salt optional
  • 2 tbsp. garlic minced
  • Parmesan Cheese (optional)


  • Washed and slice the potatoes
  • Melt the butter and microwave another 30 seconds with the garlic and herb.
  • In a shallow bowl, add in the potatoes and butter mixture (save few table spoons for later). Coast the potatoes well and then line in a non-stick pan.
  • Baked in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Remove and mash each potato slice with a glass cup.
  • Brush the potatoes again with some butter and top with parmesan cheese (optional). Bake for another 5 minutes and remove to serve.


  • Use a preheated oven.
  • You can marinate them however way you want or keep them plain if you do not want to add any butter or oils to them.
  • I do recommend at least spraying them with some oil spray, whether it's olive oil, vegetable or avocado oil spray.
  • The cheese is completely optional as well if you do not want to add any dairy products to it.
  • Save a little bit of melted butter and then pour the rest of butter and herb mixture onto the potatoes to coat well.
  • You can boil the sweet potatoes first, but it's not essential.
  • Be sure to place the sweet potatoes onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or use a non stick pan.
  • Top with some fresh parsley.
  • For a kick spice, add some crushed red pepper flakes.
