Roasted Sweet Potatoes (or vegetable mixture) on Thanksgiving--timing question

swfood | Nov 13, 2011 09:22 AM

I am fine tuning our T-day menu and just decided to do a roasted variation on sweet potatoes, possibly coupled with other root vegetables (vs. a casserole). I just decided to do this as I think this will balance out the meal the best and is more in line with the types of foods my family likes.

My question is more of a logistic one instead of recipe help.

How best do I prepare the veggies if I only have one oven?

Most of the time that I roast veggies (and most recipes too) they are done at a higher heat compared to what you would use for the turkey (400 vs. 325) and the total cook time (on the veggies) is generally longer then what standing time is on the Turkey--so I don't think placing the vegetables in the oven once the Turkey is done is an option either.

Should I roast them in advance and re-heat or just do in the oven at the Turkey temperature, for a longer time, along with the Turkey--space wise I would be able to get both of these dishes in, as nothing else (except for a quick heat on the rolls etc) is planned.

Thanks!!!
