Roasted Garlic

  • 2 small Bulbs of Garlic
  • 2 sprigs Fresh Rosemary


  • 4.4lbs / 2kg lbs Sweet Potatoes, peeled & sliced into chunks
  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 2/3 cup / 150ml Sour Cream
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste

Extras & Optionals

  • Crispy Bacon


  • Preheat oven to 180c (356f).
  • Slice your Garlic Bulbs in half, drizzle with a little Olive Oil and place your Rosemary in the center - just like a mini garlic rosemary burger.
  • Wrap in foil and place in the oven for approx 45-60mins mins or until soft and caramelized.
  • Meanwhile, boil your Sweet Potatoes until easily sliced with a knife.
  • Mash in your Butter, Garlic, Cinnamon, Salt and Pepper.
  • Stir in your Sour Cream until smooth and creamy.
  • Serve with any additional toppings.



a) To remove the garlic simply squeeze the bulbs and it will slide out. Be careful the flaky skin doesn't fall into the mash.
b) Be generous with your salt and taste test throughout. Sweet potatoes as the name suggests are very sweet, so it's good to balance that out with a generous helping of salt.
c) Save your rosemary from the roasted garlic, finely diced it and sprinkle over the mash so it doesn't go to waste :)
