Tips for Making Roasted Sweet Potatoes
If you like to add sweetness to your sweet potatoes, you can use honey, maple syrup, or brown sugar.
If you need to speed up the cooking process, you can chop the sweet potatoes into smaller pieces. The smaller the sweet potatoes, the faster they will cook.
For crispy potatoes, it is super important that the potatoes have space on the baking sheet. Make sure not to overcrowd the pan.
Honey can sometimes burn slightly during baking, for easy cleanup, cover the baking dish with foil before baking.
For super crispy sweet potatoes, preheat the baking sheet as well. Then carefully add the sweet potatoes in a single layer to the hot sheet pan.
This recipe also works great to make sweet potato fries and wedges, just adjust the cooking time as needed.
You can also bake sweet potatoes at 400 degrees and 450 degrees if you are preparing them with other dishes. They will take slightly longer at 400 degrees and cook a little faster at 450. I find they come out the best at 425 with the perfect combo of crispy outside and tender, creamy inside.
Some people prefer adding the honey after the sweet potatoes are fully roasted since honey can burn slightly when cooking and create some smoke.

Can I eat the sweet potato skins?
Whether to not to peel sweet potatoes when you roast them is completely up to you and your preferences. If you are leaving the skin on, just make sure to thoroughly clean the potatoes so there isn’t any dirt or debris on the skin. However, it is worth mentioning that there are some additional nutrients in the skin. Specifically, the leaving the skin on your sweet potatoes will give you the benefits of added fiber, beta carotene, potassium, iron, folate, and Vitamin C. They are healthy either way, but you can reap some additional benefits by leaving the skin intact.
