These roasted SAVORY SWEET POTATO STACKS are such a beautiful unique way to serve sweet potatoes not only during the holidays, but any time of the year. I made these layered stacks with a variety of three sweet potatoes for a colorful, delicious presentation!
Using a mandolin to get thin slices of the sweet potatoes makes this recipe a snap. If you don’t have one, you can still make these savory sweet potato stacks, just use a sharp knife and try to slice consistent thin slices. It will take a bit more time and effort but well worth it!
I love ALL sweet potatoes but I tend to prefer them prepared with a savory or spicy spin vs sweetened. Chipotle Mashed Sweet Potatoes are one of my favorites and for another non-sweet version be sure to check out Layered Sweet Potato Toast Stacks and Spicy Sweet Potato Nachos.
While three colors of potatoes are pretty in these savory sweet potato stacks, feel free to substitute all one variety of sweet potato if you prefer… or mix it up with some Yukon gold potatoes. Anything goes! I tried a sweet version as well which were delicious. Just substitute the rosemary with a little brown sugar and cinnamon, perhaps top with a marshmallow at the end of baking if you like. YUMMY!Print
