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!

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

    This is the first time that I have made Baked Parmesan Sweet Potatoes. Pretty sure this is the ONLY way I will be making them from now on! SO, SO GOOD!

  2. 5 stars
    Just the recipe i needed to dress up my sweet potato! so delicious, my bf who doesn’t even like sweet potatoes thought they were yummy. definitely will do this again

    1. I love that! For someone who doesn’t like them, to like it. Thank you for letting me know 🙂

  3. 5 stars
    These were a big hit and we will make them many more times! This recipe will go in our rotation of sweet potato side dishes for sure.

  4. Trying later too excited!! Can I prep the sweet potatoes in the coating and let marinate for a few hours before using?

    1. I personally haven’t, but I am sure that would still be ok 🙂 Wasn’t sure if it makes them get too soft.

    1. Yes, though I personally like them straight from the oven/fresh. This is my make ahead instructions…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 are my very favorite side! My entire family loves them, especially my 4 year old. They are so quick and easy, and taste amazing.

    These sweet potatoes are our new favorite side dish. I never thought about adding parm to sweet potatoes, but these are so good!

    Wow wow wow! I followed the recipe exactly, other than I had (and used) both yams AND sweet potatoes. They cooked at a similar rate and I liked the color differentiation of white and orange. This was just incredibly delicious. Pretty much the only way I’m going to be cooking these tubers from here on out. Why mess with perfect? My boyfriend just devoured most of them. A few things:

    1). You can chop up the potatoes or yams, mix up the Parmesan butter coating up to a day or two before the BIG DAY.

    2). It took about 10-15 minutes longer in my crowded oven for these to cook, so beware if you are making this as a side dish at thanksgiving.

    That being said, everyone voted for their favorite side, and this one was the clear winner!

  8. These look amazing and will be sure to try…thankyou! Wondering why the need to mix in a baggie though?, can do the same thing in a bowl and skip another plastic bag in the garbage…

    Such an enormous amount of sodium in this recipe! There is enough sodium in the cheese itself so I couldn’t justify using garlic salt. Garlic powder is just fine. Otherwise, it’s a great recipe.

    I made this last week and am making again today. The first time I did equal parts sweet potato and yams, just for color difference. My boyfriend RAVED about this recipe, and that’s saying something bc he really isn’t a yam or sweet potato fan. Good job you!

    Hey Kristyn, I was looking for an Italian “flavor” for sweet potatoes to go with a pork medallion & spinach recipe I was making. This was just the thing I was looking for! Thanks – It turned out great and complemented the protein exactly as I was hoping. Perfect! Just a thought for your readers though, the nutrition info that you have posted with the recipe is for the entire dish. It can put some of us who watch this type of info off from even trying the recipe. My count is somewhere about 115 cals for one serving…whew 🙂

    1. Thank you for your sweet words! And thank you for the note on the nutrition information. We’ll update that. Thanks!

    I soaked the unpeeled potatoes for 20 minutes in cool water (after cubing) and then pat dry/ allowed them to dry before coating. I also used cast iron pans instead of a foil lined baking sheet. I added a sprinkle of olive oil to the pans before adding the coated sweet potatoes. (That was probably excessive as the pans were overly oily after cooking.) The pan that in which I spaced the potatoes turned out crispy and delicious. The pan which I crowded was delicious, but did not have the crispy outer. I cannot wait to try these again!

    Thank you for your recipe!

    1. Thanks so much for sharing what you did. I’m so glad this recipe turned out tasty for you! I do love the crispy outer on the potatoes as well. 🙂
