Baked Parmesan Sweet Potatoes

Holidays · Sides · April 29, 2017

Baked Parmesan Sweet Potatoes - my new favorite side dish recipe. Takes minutes to make and tastes AMAZING!! Soft sweet potatoes coated with parmesan cheese and all kinds of spices!!

I have a new found love for Sweet Potatoes. Growing up I thought they were so gross. Now, I can’t get enough of them!! πŸ˜€ I think my husband was the one who converted me. I remember when we were dating and we went to Texas Roadhouse. He ordered a Sweet Potato as a side dish. He got it topped with all sorts of stuff and I remember thinking it looked pretty gross but he made me give it a try. To my astonishment, I loved the dish and have enjoyed the veggie every since. Now the hubby knows that if a restaurant has sweet potato fries, I want them too!! πŸ˜€

With this new love in mind, I thought it would be fun to make some Baked Parmesan Sweet Potatoes inspired by the Baked Parmesan Potatoes that we’ve made for years. The result was AMAZING!! I even had some friends from church try them out and they loved them as well. You can obviously change up this dish to your liking, but we loved how these turned out!!

The best part about this recipe 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 a minute! I think we found a new side dish recipe that we’ll be making loads more. πŸ˜‰

Baked Parmesan Sweet Potatoes
Baked Parmesan Sweet Potatoes- soft sweet potatoes coated with parmesan cheese and all kinds of spices!! It's a new favorite side dish that is quick and delicious.
Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 3-4
  • 2 sweet potatoes (peeled and cubed)
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 2 TB butter (melted)
  • 4 TB grated Parmesan Cheese
  • ½ tsp. garlic salt
  • ½ tsp. Italian Seasoning
  • dried parsley
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Peel and cube sweet potatoes into 1 inch cubes.
  3. Place garlic, oil, butter, salt, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning in a ziploc bag and mix well.
  4. Throw in sweet potatoes and shake until well coated.
  5. Place aluminum foil on cookie sheet and lightly spray.
  6. Place coated sweet potatoes onto cookie sheet and spread out evenly.
  7. Bake for 18-22 minutes.
  8. Serve warm and sprinkle with dried parsley if desired.

NOTE: This recipe calls for 2 potatoes, but can easily be doubled, tripled or even quadrupled for more friends and family members. The sweet potatoes I bought were a pretty good size, so you just have to think about that size and how many people it would feed. Because the hubby and I love sweet potatoes so much we’d probably use this recipe just for us 2. πŸ˜‰

I never liked sweet potatoes my whole life, any way they were fixed, including sweet potato pie. I made these for my boyfriend. I do not make what I won’t eat, but he is special so I made the Baked Parmesan Sweet Potatoes and I tried them and OMGosh, they are so goood I can’t wait to make more! They were gone fast and now I asked to please make more, and make extra. Yes make these you will be glad you did, Thank you for your recipe


Just made this tonight (halved the recipe for one sweet potato). It was delicious! Thank you!

Jamie Robertson

thank you so much for sharing this. I made them last night and they were DELICIOUS!!!


Would these be just just as good with regular potatoes? I wanted to make these for my boyfriend but he insists that he doesn’t like sweet potatoes (although I would love to try them).

    Lil' Luna

    They are great with regular potatoes!! Try them with those first and then maybe you can convince him to try sweet potatoes. πŸ˜‰


Made this as a side for dinner tonight, so tasty!!!


These are delicious.I was looking for a recipe to make for my kids for lunch using sweet potatoes. Found this recipe, threw it together in about five minutes, and now my kids have been quiet for like TEN WHOLE MINUTES while eating these sweet potatoes. They love them. (And I can’t stop sneaking them off their plates.) Thanks!!!!!

    Thank you Amallia! We sure love this recipe..hope you do too!


We love sweet potatoes and this has become our favorite way of making them. I also add chopped onion and use a LOT more garlic because we love garlic! I will also try this in the slow cooker for gatherings. Thank you for a new staple!

    Lil' Luna

    Great ideas!! They have become a favorite in our home, too! Thanks for letting me know!


Oh man, those photos are awesome. I’m actually making some in the microwave now (short on time) and plan to top with some garlic salt, parmesan cheese and italian seasoning. Thanks for the inspiration!

Do you know the nutrition info for these? πŸ™‚


    Wondering the same thing 😊


    I was wondering the same thing.


These are DELISH! And so easy. Do you have the nutritional information?

Thank you so much for sharing😊

    Lil' Luna

    I don’t, I’m sorry! But, they are delish!! Thank you!


I too have just developed a taste for sweet potatoes as an adult. I made these the other night and thought they were amazing. Thanks!

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you for trying them! Glad, I’m not the only one!

Rosa Smith

I have made this with butternut pumpkin (Im from West Australia we call them pumpkin not squash😜) and they are perfect as well. But the sweet potatoe were not bad either…thanks


Will be making these tonight!! These look fantastic!!


These sweet potatoes have become a family favorite. I’ve also taken it to several potlucks and it’s always a winner. I live in the south so most people around here think sweet potatoes can only be baked or candied. Thanks for expanding my horizons.

    Lil' Luna are so welcome!! Thank you for giving them a try!! So glad they are a favorite!

Judy Weaver

These are amazing. I made this and baked sweet potatoes and Brussel sprouts together.. yum. I also gave the sweet potatoe peelings to my dog and he loved them. Usually I don’t peel sweet potatoes as I eat the skin too, but for this recipie I peeled and doggie was happy.

    Lil' Luna

    Haha..glad he liked them! Thank you for stopping by and for sharing!


I made these and they were delicious! However, they took way longer than 22 minutes. I was disappointed because they weren’t ready when the rest of my dinner was.

    Lil' Luna

    I am sorry they took longer, but I’m glad you liked them. I know all ovens are different & cooking times may be different. Mine is super hot, so I know things don’t cook as long as recipes suggest. Thank you for trying them!


I found this recipe and now I can’t stop making it! There are delicious!


Made these this morning before I went to work. Oh. My. Goodness! This will be added to my regular day. These are so good!! Thank you for the amazing recipe!!

    Lil' Luna

    You are so welcome!! Thank you so much!! I am so glad you liked them!


Hi Kristyn,
I just made the sweet potato recipe. It was absolutely delicious, thanks for sharing.


How would you suggest I reheat these? I want to make them for Thanksgiving but they will need to be reheated before eating.

    Kristyn Merkley

    I’m not sure how you’d want to reheat these. I usually bake them when I know we’ll be eating them. You could keep them in the oven on a low temp. That would be my only suggestion. I don’t think the microwave would work. They might just get soggy. Good luck!


Yum! Can’t have cheese but will definitely try this! Thank you for sharing!


Going to try these tomorrow for a family dinner. If using 6 potatoes, do you think I would have to bake longer? I’m terrible with cooking and have no idea!

    Kristyn Merkley

    You probably will or you can spread it out over a bigger sheet pan & it might be the same time. You may want to double up or even triple the ingredients, since you have more potatoes. Just keep checking on the potatoes & you’ll know when they are done. πŸ™‚ Good luck!


Go to sweet potato recipe. It’s sooo good and you can’t go wrong adding extra garlic and butter


These are really good! I will make them again.

Maureen Walker

I made 2 changes:
Mixed in a bowl rather than a bag
Used minced garlic and salt instead of garlic salt
This is my new β€œgo to” sweet potato recipe! Everyone loves it!

    Kristyn Merkley

    Yay!! I am so glad you like it! Your changes sound great, thank you for sharing!


Can’t wait to try the sweet potato recipe. Thanks for sharing.
