Sweet Potato Rosemary Biscuits

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. ย 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.
