Tips for the roasted sweet potatoes recipe

We love the simplicity of this roasted sweet potato recipe. Here are a few tips to make the best roasted sweet potatoes ever.

  • You can keep the skin on if you like. Ensure the sweet potatoes are thoroughly brushed and rinsed.
  • Roasting time will depend on the thickness of your sweet potato slices: the thicker, the longer.
  • You can add chili powder, Cayenne, or smoked paprika to enhance the flavors of these roasted sweet potatoes.
  • Swap fresh rosemary instead of thyme if you prefer. Fresh thyme is more subtle on these baked sweet potatoes, but rosemary will also work great.

Tips for buying sweet potatoes for roasting

Look for plump potatoes that feel heavy in your hand compared to their size, and with even, spotless skin without discolorations. Store sweet potatoes in a dry, cool, dark place (like a pantry or cupboard, not the fridge) for two weeks. Our favorite sweet potatoes for roasting are the Red Garnet and Jewel varieties.

How to cut sweet potatoes for roasting

To make the best roasted sweet potatoes, we recommend you first peel the skins off the sweet potatoes for better flavor and texture.

  • Trim off the ends of the sweet potato and cut a lengthwise strip using your knife or a vegetable peeler with several passes: removing a thin lengthwise strip on the bottom of the sweet potato allows you to maintain the sweet potato firmly on your cutting board for cutting.
  • Holding the sweet potato firmly against the cutting board with one hand, cut the sweet potato into slices. We like using a Santoku knife because the slices do not stick to the scalloped blade (Granton edge).

How long does it take to roast the sweet potato slices

This will depend on how thin you slice the sweet potatoes. Generally, the thinner the slices, the faster they cook, but as we stack them in a spiral for presentation, you can plan to roast the sweet potatoes for 35 minutes when the oven is set to 400°F (200ºC).

How to keep sweet potato leftovers

You can keep any leftovers in your refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat covered in the oven with a few drops of water to loosen the sauce.

    Delicious! I trimmed back on the butter and parmesan cheese a bit. Beautiful flavor combination 👏

  • Kathy

    This turned out great. Since I was needing more & only had the 2 sweet potatoes, I added sliced russet potatoes. I alternated them with the sweet potatoes. Looked very pretty & was delicious. Thanks!

    Made these just last evening. So tasty. I’ve made them before and they are on a rotation at our house.

  • Cecilia

    Made both the sweet potatoes and then made with carrots (the huge thick ones from Latin American markets). Absolutely delicious!

  • Leslie

    Delicious. I do wish you’d give a an approximate weight for the sweet potatoes as they come in much varying sizes. And maybe an approximate thickness of slices. Also, no need to waste a plastic bag. I gently mixed the sweet potatoes and other ingredients in a big mixing bowl before arranging in the baking dish One more thing, I made my own mixture of Italian seasoning as I don’t keep that one in my pantry sinceI have all the ingredients that it’s made of.

  • Julia

    So great! Next time, I’ll do a light shake of sea salt when it’s right out of the oven.

    Wow!!!!! No way to fail here. Followed recipe almost to the T, but was a little short on the fresh Thyme. Still amazing. Thank you very much.

    Love sweet potatoes. Making this for Christmas dinner. I’m excited to try. Can I make it ahead of time & cook the day of.

  • Jill

    Made this for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit with my family- who are not fans of the typical sugary sweet sweet potato casseroles. It was delicious and a perfect complement to the turkey and usual side dishes. As a bonus, it also looks beautiful. This will definitely be on our menu again!

  • Pamela

    After years of making an old family recipe for sweet potatoes involving orange zest and sugar, I decided to search for something different. I made these tonight ahead of time for Thanksgiving dinner and they are delicious! If anyone is on the fence about a savory sweet potato dish I don’t think you will be disappointed.

  • David

    Very good recipe. I'm not a big fan of Sweet Potatoes, so any recipe that make me really enjoy them is a winner.

  • Donna Shears

    2021-11-16 17:43:19

    I’ve made this twice. The first time I just threw stuff in the bag without really measuring, and the sweet potatoes turned out delicious. Trying them again tonight, but I’ve been measuring and not so sure about the amount of garlic or Parmesan as seems like a lot for 2 sweet potatoes. Then again I am sure we will like them just as much. Great recipe for sweet potatoes.

    I was very worried about the sweet potato and garlic match up .... but it worked well in this recipe . I'd definitely make these again . I was super sure it'd be icky because I couldn't imagine the favors working together , but it was perfect!! Thank you ! I learned something new and everyone enjoyed the dish.

  • Litsa

    2021-10-09 21:37:34

    Made it and it was the best ever! Now will make it again for thanksgiving 😋

  • Jennifer

    2021-10-09 16:01:58

    I want to make for Thanksgiving, has anyone prepared the day before with all ingredients in the bag and then cooked on the day! I need to make some stuff in advance if I can.

  • Rae Franceschini

    2021-08-16 15:09:08

    I think this looks great ! Want to know if this can be done in a crock pot? Low for 3 to 4 hours?

  • Hjones

    2021-07-04 21:14:47

    Delicious! Indeed just as recipe called.

  • Jack

    2021-06-01 11:49:54

    Made this dish last evening to serve alongside a Magret du Canard. I was very curious at what the profile might end up being as I was not feeling positive about sweet potato marrying up with garlic. Sorry to say, my fears were realized. IMHO, it just doesn't work.

  • Honey

    2021-05-10 03:29:55

    They were a hit!!! Everyone in my family loved this recipe, and I’ll definitely be making more!

  • Anya

    2021-04-25 12:16:30

    LOVED these! I have horrible knife skills so I cut them into bite sized chunks (great for my young kids!). I baked them uncovered for 30 Mona then sprinkled with Parmesan and bake for an extra 5-10 minutes.

  • Jackie

    2021-03-31 20:33:12

    These were fabulous, loved em!

  • Sarah

    2021-03-13 17:40:17

    I like this recipe, did not want a traditional sweet one! I used 3 yams and more garlic! The house smells like a restaurant! I covered the yams with foil for the first 30 minutes, to be sure they would be tender, then removed the foil and let them roast a few more minutes. I served them with grilled Rib Eye steak. Heavenly!

  • Darden

    2021-02-16 20:38:40

    This was really great. My husband couldnt stop himself from gobbling them up! And it turned out pretty enough to serve for company. Will definitely be making this one again....and I doubled the garlic but thats just the way we roll here. 😉

  • Debra

  • Doreen

    Absolutely delicious.....and easy to make.

  • Ellen

    2020-11-26 18:41:08

    I made this for Thanksgiving and we really enjoyed it. I’ve been doing them “sweet” (canned yams, brown sugar and butter, etc,) forever and wanted to try something different. Loved them fresh and with the more savory flavor profile. Thanks for sharing.

  • Star

    2020-11-25 09:23:16

    This was easy and delicious... Thanks for sharing this recipe!
