Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes

These easy, Roasted Sweet Potatoes are an easy side to cook up all season long. They use pantry staples, and most of the cook time is hands-off. While they roast in the oven, you can finish up your other dishes. They’re delicious with meat and a veggie, added to grain bowls with a runny egg, roasted veggies, and sauce, or even for breakfast with your favorite eggs. More of my favorite sweet potato recipes are these baked sweet potatoes and these air fryer sweet potato fries!

  • Herbs: Dried rosemary or Italian seasoning add flavor.
  • Kosher Salt and Pepper to taste

How to Roast Sweet Potatoes

  1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 425°F, and lightly spray a baking sheet with oil. You can also line it with foil to reduce cleanup.
  2. Cut the Sweet Potatoes into 3/4-inch cubes.
  3. Season Sweet Potatoes: Toss the potatoes with olive oil and season with all the herbs and spices. Spread the mixture in an even layer on the sheet pan.
  4. How Long to Roast Sweet Potatoes at 425°F: Cook the sweet potatoes for 35 minutes until fork tender, golden, and browned on the edges.


  • Potatoes: Substitute Yams or butternut squash for sweet potatoes.
  • Seasoning: Add onion powder, cumin, chili powder or make it smokey with smoked paprika. Make it spicy with ground cayenne pepper or chipotle pepper.
  • Herbs: Use any mix of dried herbs you have, like oregano, thyme, and parsley. Fresh rosemary would also be good.

  1. Super easy and great savory flavors. They were cooked sooner than expected so keep an eye on them towards the end.

  2. Simple – easy – and so yummy. I was cooking another dish at the same time. Started this at the 425 temp the recipe stated (for 15 minutes) but had to drop it down to 400 for the other dish I was cooking. Cooked it another 1/2 hour and they were perfect!

  3. This was an easy recipe to make and the potatoes were delicious! Perfectly seasoned. I will make them often.

  4. So delicious and easy! Another healthy winner!
    Gina, you are my “Go To” website for almost every recipe my husband and I regularly make. We thank you for helping us keep a healthy weight! I frequently recommend your recipes to friends.

  5. Delicious, as are all your recipes! I am just wondering why it is 6 WW points? 1 medium sweet potato on the WW app is 2 points and 1 tsp of oil is 1.

    1. if you add the sweet potato by weight it increases, so the question is what are they considering a serving size if you don’t weigh it?

  6. I’m trying to figure out what can be done in my air fryer. Please tell me why you recommend using a different recipe (french fries) for the AF and the oven for this recipe? This looks so delicious and will be made soon!

  7. Hi Gina, do you make them in fan-assisted or traditional oven? My potatoes always loose moisture when using fan-assisted heat. Thank you for your great recipes, love them!

    I do something similar to this but I use McCormicks Smokehouse Maple seasoning and it’s delicious!
