HOW TO BAKE SWEET POTATOES?
A mandolin slicer is ideal for slicing peeled potatoes into tiny slices. Paper towels work well for this. Then, combine the sliced sweet potatoes with butter, salt, pepper, and rosemary/oregano in a large bowl. Put the slices in an upright position (from left to right) in a small baking dish and bake for one hour.
