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. Β 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. Charleston’s cafe (my brunch obsession) has the BEST sweet potato biscuits. I’ve been wanting to recreate them at home- you’ve provided a great recipe/inspiration.

  2. I love sweet potato biscuits! There is a restaurant on Chincoteague where I go for vacation every summer where I could give or take the food, but I always want to eat there just for their sweet potato biscuits.

    I haven’t made biscuits in a while since I’ve been on this gluten-free experiment and had my gluten-free biscuits flop and become cookies. I really should give it another shot, particularly as it’s the time of year for sweet potatoes!

  3. I honestly have not truly successfully made biscuits yet but I think these are going to have to make it into my rotation. I love anything sweet potato-infused.

  4. Yum! I love sweet potato biscuits and I love how your potatoes are in chunk form… I have a feeling the addition of rosemary gives them the perfect fall ( and Thanksgiving!) taste πŸ™‚

  5. I’m not too handy with cut out biscuits, but I’ve found I can manage the drop kind. These look fabulous. I love the addition of the sweet potato AND the rosemary

  6. Sweet Potatoes are my favorite too Maria! If I could I would have one every day. I also love biscuits and they are a huge weakness of mine. So these sound delicious and perfect for Thanksgiving… or any day for that matter. πŸ™‚ I’m trying these soon.
