Directions

1. To make the roasted sweet potatoes: Preheat your oven to 450ºF (240ºC) and lightly oil a large rimmed baking sheet.

2. In a large bowl, toss chopped sweet potatoes with oil; then season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, thyme, and Italian seasoning.

3. Spread the seasoned sweet potatoes out evenly on your prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes until sweet potatoes are tender and edges begin to blacken and crisp up. Toss up the sweet potatoes after 10 minutes to ensure even roasting.

5. Serve the roasted sweet potatoes immediately. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the roasted sweet potatoes recipe

  • These oven-roasted sweet potatoes need to be tossed every 10 minutes to ensure an even bake and caramelization. Depending on the variety of sweet potatoes, the roasted time can change slightly. Pay attention to the color and tenderness of the sweet potatoes when tossing them to check if they’re done.
  • You can add chili powder, Cayenne, or smoked paprika to enhance the flavors.

How to choose and buy a good sweet potato for roasting

Look for sweet potatoes that are plump and feel heavy for their size, and with even skin. Store them in a dry, cool, dark place (like a pantry or cupboard, not the fridge) for two weeks.

How To Cut a Sweet Potato For Roasting

To make the best roasted sweet potatoes, you must first peel the skins off the potatoes and then cut them into 1-inch pieces. Cutting sweet potatoes this way makes sure they all end up in even pieces, which then ensures you end up with crispy roasted sweet potatoes. 

  • For the best flavor and texture, we recommend peeling the sweet potato.
  • Trim off the ends and cut a lengthwise strip: removing a thin lengthwise strip on the bottom of the potato allows you to maintain the sweet potato firmly on your cutting board.
  • Cut the sweet potato into 1-inch rounds.
  • Chop each sweet potato round into 1-inch equal-sized pieces.
