Garlic sweet potatoes?

We're having my FIL over for dinner tonight. I had a menu planned already and part of it was going to be garlic roasted potatoes. He, however, didn't really think I'd have a menu planned out in advance and brought over some sweet potatoes that I now have to cook instead. Can I make garlic sweet potatoes or would that taste gross? Should I just roast them in oil and salt and leave the garlic out of it?

What would you do?

  • Sweet Potato and Parmesan Oven Fries

    1 1/2 - 2 lbs (about 2 large) sweet potatoes, peeled if desired
    About 2 Tbs (30 ml) olive oil
    About 1/4 cup (60 ml) freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

    Cut the sweet potatoes into rounds about 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick. Toss with the olive oil to coat, then toss with the Parmesan, salt, and pepper to coat both sides. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350F (180C) oven for 15 minutes. Turn the sweet potatoes and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 10 to 15 minutes more. Serves 4 to 6.

  • I make mashed sweet potatoes. Just-cut them and boil them until fork tender. Drain and mash them...add some butter; milk (heavy cream if you have it) brown sugar and a little bit of allspice.

  • I love baked sweet potatoes. They are actually less work than mashing them. Just scrub them, dry them and poke some holes with a fork. Place them in the oven and bake at 400 until tender. I add a pinch of salt, a sprinkle of brown sugar and cinnamon and a pat of butter. YUM!! You can make them mashed instead easily. They are easy to peel after baking, just mash them up and add the same ingredients and mash away.
