  • Toss sweet potatoes, 1/2 cup honey, and olive oil together in a bowl until potatoes are completely coated. Spread potatoes out on a baking sheet and drizzle any remaining olive oil mixture over the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet, 5 to 10 minutes; dust potatoes with cinnamon. Transfer sweet potatoes to plates and drizzle with remaining honey.

Cook's Note:

The oil in the bowl will prevent the honey from sticking to your hands for the most part.

This recipe looks simplistic but these sweet potatoes are sweet, sticky, and sublime. I gave it only four stars since it needs a few tweaks (at least IMO) to get it from good to great. First, the proportions. The sauce given is enough for five large sweet potatoes. That's the perfect amount of coating. Second, to up the flavor I added 1 tsp. of salt and 1/2 tsp. each of black pepper and garlic powder. Last, I found it needed to cook for an hour, not half an hour, to get really soft and delicious. Once you make these changes, you've got a winner. Every member of my family loved it! Read More

For me, the correct ratio was 2 tablespoons of honey to one tablespoon of olive oil for each sweet potato. Also, I baked it for an hour because I preferred the sweetness of the carmelized sweet potatoes; I used a lot less cinnamon and seasoned with kosher salt and pepper – personal preference. These were addicting! Read More

I loved this recipe. I did not add the cinnamon as we have a family member who is allergic to it. It was great without it. Had to eat it last on the plate though because it was so decadent I felt like I was eating dessert before eating dinner. Read More

Loved this recipe after tweaking just a little. Roasted the potatoes shaken with olive oil and sprinkled with kosher salt for about 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes then coat 2 unpeeled apples cut into bite size chunks (doesn't seem to matter what kind but I like tartness to balance the potato) with 2 tbs each of honey and maple syrup and add apples to potato sheet drizzle remaining syrup mix over apples and potatoes roast for 20-30 minutes until apples soft.

I found this recipe was a bit too sauce-y. I think next time I will try it but with half the oil honey and cinnamon. Otherwise the flavour is really good! Read More
