3 Twists on Roasted Sweet Potatoes - Serious Eats

Oh the humble sweet potato. Actually not so humble. In fact, they're pretty amazing! Sweet potato lovers are really in a crowd all their own. Make them feel included and amazed when they taste these! And, I guess you can make regular potatoes for everyone else. Lame!
