Around here, sweet potatoes are a staple. I eat them almost every day, and my husband and my son don’t mind them every once in awhile. My daughter, however, has not embraced the sweet potato in the same way. In fact, she insists she hates them.


More for me.

White potatoes are one of those things that have gotten a bad rap. They do have nutrients and are certainly a better option than processed food, so I don’t fight it too much. Plus I do adore some garlic mashed potatoes every once in awhile. But I also want to add variety to our diets to increase the amount of nutrient dense foods we are eating.

So to help bridge the gap, I combined them both into a single dish I call oven roasted seasoned potatoes, and it turned out amazing!

This dish would be great with the addition of other root veggies too, I can’t wait to experiment with different combinations.

What veggies would you add to this dish?

    My son has Celiac disease so potatoes are a staplehere. These look awesome, I don’t know that I’d change a thing.

    I never would have thought to cook sweet potatoes and white potatoes in the same dish. That looks delish!

      It was an accident actually, my husband had bought red potatoes but they were bad. I used what I had, and since Abby will only eat white, I had to throw what I had in there.

    i love potatoes in any way shape and form. I’ve also been eating lots of sweet potatoes, they are delish. This sounds like the perfect side!

      It really was great, my husband and I ate almost all of it at one sitting. The kids were sick that day, and we did not mind one bit. :)

    This sounds good. I need to get over my sweet potato dislike!

      I love them. Baked with butter and cinnamon is my favorite way to have them.

    We don’t do sweet potatoes in this house (yuck) but I do love almost every other kind. Roasting them is delicious!
