Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Have you ever roasted sweet potatoes? If you haven’t, we are hoping we can convince you to because they make the greatest side dish to any meal!

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!

Parmesan Sweet PotatoesYou’ll coat the sweet potato cubes in garlic, butter, oil, salt, Parmesan Cheese and Italian seasoning.

How to roast sweet potatoes

To make these roasted sweet potato cubes, you’ll begin by preheating your oven to 400 degrees.

From there, peel and cube the sweet potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Set these aside and combine the garlic, oil, butter, salt, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning in a Ziploc bag and mix well.

Toss the potatoes in the bag until they are well coated. Place on a foil-lined cookie sheet that has been greased.

Spread the sweet potatoes on the cookie sheet and bake for about 20 minutes. Easy and delicious!

Sweet Potato NOTES

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
  • 5 people – 3-4 potatoes
  • 10 people – 8 potatoes
  • 15 people – 10-11 potatoes
  • 20 people – 15-16 potatoes

We hope you enjoy these roasted sweet potato cubes as much as we did! They will be a great addition at any meal or holiday dinner. And they can be easily changed up based on the seasonings you use, so let us know if you try other variations so we can share them here!

  1. These potatoes look so delicious!! This recipe will be perfect since it is just me and the hubby now. Thanks so much for the recipe 🙂

  2. Omg! I just made these… (like, they’re still warm from the oven)but I had to stop stuffing my face to tell you THANK YOU for this recipe! My life will never be the same, SO GOOD!

  3. 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

  4. 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).

  5. 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!!!!!

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

    1. 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!

  12. 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!!

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

    1. 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!

  14. 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!

    1. 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. 🙂 Good luck!

  15. Fantastic!!!
    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 “go to” sweet potato recipe! Everyone loves it!
