  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Aunt Nellie’s Whole Pickled Beets
  • 2 large sweet potatoes (about 1 pound) peeled and cubed (1/2 to 3/4-inch)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 red onion, sliced about 1/4-inch thick
  • 2 fresh rosemary sprigs, plus extra for garnish


Makes 4 servings.

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Drain beets. Discard liquid or save for another use.
  2. In large bowl toss together sweet potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper and onion until coated. 
  3. Place a silicone mat onto baking sheet, or line with aluminum foil. 
  4. Pour contents of bowl onto baking sheet in a single layer. Remove rosemary from stems; sprinkle over vegetables. Bake 30 minutes until potatoes are almost tender. Add beets to baking sheet. Return to oven for additional 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender and beginning to brown. Garnish with additional rosemary, if desired.
