Roasted Sweet Potatoes scream winter, but what happens when...oh wait, you'll have to come back to see what exactly I did with these delicious little potatoes.

How do you make roasted sweet potatoes crispy?

This is the magic your oven does all on its own when the temperature is high. Whenever I roast anything (potatoes or veggies), I never go below 400 degrees F. The potatoes will get crispy quickly, so always keep a close eye on them and flip a few times throughout so they cook evenly.

Do you have to peel sweet potatoes before roasting them?

The peel of a sweet potato is edible, so peeling isn’t necessary. However, I always peel sweet potatoes before roasting because it adds a rough texture that not everyone enjoys. Use a vegetable or potato peeler to easily remove the peel. It’ll only take a couple minutes of your time.

How do you roast sweet potatoes quickly?

There’s really no way to speed up the process of roasting, but by limiting the number of times you open your oven they will roast as quickly as possible. I also recommend never roasting above 425 degrees F, as burning is likely to occur.

These sweet potatoes are soooo good. This is one of those super simple recipes that creates a versatile and mouth-wateringly yummy snack. Or salad topping. Or side dish. You need these in your life! Ok, now go outside and enjoy this weather before it snows! Thanks for being here.
