sweet potato biscuits

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods. I love them in any form-roasted, in soup, as fries, and even on my tostadas. I made a pan of roasted sweet potatoes last week for lunch and had some leftovers. I was going to stick them in the refrigerator for later, but instead I made sweet potato rosemary biscuits for dinner.

Homemade biscuits are not hard to make and taste so much better than the canned version, in my opinion. These drop biscuits are especially easy to make. You don’t have to roll out the dough or fuss with cutting them and they take less than 20 minutes to bake.  The roasted sweet potatoes, garlic, and rosemary add the perfect punch of flavor and color to these buttery biscuits.

Sweet potato rosemary biscuits are the perfect side dish to any fall meal. Serve them with your favorite soup, salad, or meat dish. They would also be a great addition to your Thanksgiving menu. These sweet potato biscuits are quick and easy to make-you don’t have to worry about yeast or dough rising and they are very tasty! Pile your bread basket with sweet potato and rosemary biscuits this year, your guests will gobble them up.

  1. These would a wonderful addition to any Thanksgiving feast…and the next morning…and the day after that. Thanks for the link!

  2. Yum! In the last few years I have discovered sweet potatoes (always hated them as a kid… not really sure why!) and now they are one of my favorites. Love how you’ve paired them with rosemary in these biscuits!

  3. I love how easy drop biscuits are…the addition of sweet potatoes and rosemary sounds great! They look like the perfect biscuit for Thanksgiving!

  4. I made these the other night, and loved the little bit of sweetness and texture difference the sweet potato gave the biscuit. I even posted on my blog about it! Thanks!

  5. These were great! I didn’t have enough butter, so I probably used about 3T, but they were still delicious. I also had mashed sweet potatoes instead of roasted because I didn’t want to have chunks of them (my husband doesn’t like them).

  6. I made these last night after dinner and they were delicious! I had roasted sweet potatoes with rosemary and cranberries in a little olive oil for dinner then used the left overs for the biscuits. The cranberries were a bonus. My husband loved them and requested them for Thanksgiving. Thank you for all the wonderful recipes.

  7. Love these made them twice already, but you call them sweet potatoes and it looks like you used yams to make them I used sweet potatoes there is a difference.
