Roasting sweet potatoes is easier than you think. We will show you how easy it is to do with today’s recipe for Baked Sweet Potato Cubes. It was inspired by our recipe for Baked Parmesan Potatoes that we’ve made for years.

We tried the recipe using sweet potatoes and fell in love with the combo of sweet and savory the potatoes and seasonings provide. The best part about these oven roasted sweet potatoes is that it’s super simple. It took just about 5 minutes to throw together and then we had to bake them for about 20 minutes.

They were so good and were literally gone in minutes!

We love serving these cubes as is, but for even added flavor like to add:

  • chopped parsley
  • Shaved Parmesan
  • chives/green onions

How to make crispy sweet potato cubes? These cubes end up soft and a tid crispy but to make them even more crispy, be sure to flip half way through and broil for the last minute or two.

Can you reheat sweet potato cubes? Just store in an air-tight container in the fridge for 2-3 days and reheat in the microwave or back in the oven for 10 minutes to get them crispy again.

These Parmesan sweet potatoes are great for the holidays. Since the recipe only calls for 2 potatoes, take note of that when doubling, tripling or even quadrupling. Here is a guide to help with that knowing that 2 potatoes serves 2-3 people

  • 2 people – 2 potatoes

    1. I’d say maybe around 10 minutes, give or take? I haven’t tried these in the air fryer yet, but that’d be a great cooking option!

  1. So I am going to make these for a work party tomorrow but am having trouble trying to figure out if I should just cook them fully and then reheat at work? Or my other option would be to cut the sweet potatoes prior, put them in water in the fridge and the quickly assemble and pop in the oven at work. What would you suggest?

    1. How fun! Either option would work honestly… I’d say it depends on how much time you have at work. You can store in an air-tight container in the fridge for 2-3 days and reheat in the microwave or back in the oven for 10 minutes to get them crispy again. Or baking them fresh is always delicious if you have the space/time to at work. Hope the work party goes well!

  2. 5 stars
    These potatoes even pleased my picky husband who doesn’t care for sweet potatoes. They were very flavorful and easy to prepare. I put mine in along with a chicken dish at 350 degrees for 40 minutes and they were perfect. ❤️
