Baked Garlic Sweet Potatoes

“I see recipes calling for one clove of garlic. One clove of garlic is not enough for any recipe unless it’s a recipe for ‘How to cook one clove of garlic’ – even in this case, use two.”  Unknown

Amen! To me, a recipe can never call for enough garlic, so when it was chosen for the theme for this month's Baking Bloggers, I was in.  We are all big garlic fans, we love it in everything from garlic bread to chicken to corn on the cob.  But there's just something even more amazing about it when you bake or roast it in the oven!

I'm still hitting the local farms as much as I can, and right now one of my favorite things to pick up are sweet potatoes.  I love them done in the oven, so I was excited to run across this recipe from Taste of Home.  I couldn't get fresh rosemary, so I used dried. If you're hesitant about the whole cloves of garlic, you can definitely mince it.

Delicious, and guaranteed to keep away the vampires :)  Thank you so much to Michelle B. for sharing her recipe.   Be sure to go and check out the other garlic dishes being shared by our host Sue from Palatable Pastime, and the other #BakingBloggers today by clicking the links below!

    1. It really is! It's great with so many things!

  2. I love that you roasted the garlic whole with the sweet potatoes, Jolene. Delicious!

    1. It also makes it easy for my picky eater to avoid it on the days he's being superpicky ;)

  3. I love that quote at the top. I always double the garlic in any recipe =)

  4. I love whole cloves of garlic! They become very mild and even a little sweet when roasted. Perfect for any veggies.

  5. Roated garlic and sweet potatoes is an awesome combination. They look delish.
