An anytime side dish.
Preheat the oven to 425 F.
Scrub and peel the potatoes, then cut into 1-inch cubes, or smaller if you like things more bite sized.
Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Arrange the potatoes in one layer. I had to use 2 pans for this amount of potatoes, but it depends on the size of your baking sheet!
Spray the tops of the potatoes with more cooking spray, and sprinkle lightly with salt all over.
Roast the sweet potatoes for 20-30 minutes until dark on the edges and cooked through. Cooking time will depend on how small the potatoes are and how hot your oven is. You could dice them really small and they’ll cook in 15 minutes or so. When done, they’ll be tender when pierced with a fork. If you’re using two pans, swap racks halfway through so that each pan gets equal time closest to the heat. Whether you are making one or two pans, shake the potatoes halfway through cooking.
When the potatoes are cooked, sprinkle them with fresh thyme leaves. Sprinkle a bit more coarse salt on top, and serve with your favorite dinner.
There are two keys to turning out good potato croquettes every time. The first, a well-proportioned balance of flour, egg and potato. The second necessity is oil heated sufficiently for deep frying them. The recipe given here ended the diplomatickitchen’s search for one that would turn out excellent croquettes on a regular basis.
This dish is perfect for BBQ season. Because it can be served hot or at room temperature, it travels well.
This recipe serves 4 to 6.
By the way, I like to serve these for the holidays as well!
