Slices of sweet potato baked with cinnamon and brown sugar. The caramelized brown sugar make these potatoes taste like candy! I attended a catered dinner and the caterer served these with a beautiful turkey dinner. I begged for the recipe, been making it ever since.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Pour the oil into a 9x13 inch baking dish, and place in the oven until hot, about 5 minutes.

  • Add potatoes to the oiled dish, and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, turning after 10 minutes. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and pepper.

  • After the 20 minutes is up, remove the potatoes from the oven, and sprinkle with the brown sugar mixture. Stir to coat. Return to the oven, and roast for another 10 minutes, or until potatoes are tender and golden brown. Stir potatoes as necessary to allow them to brown evenly.

  • Remove potatoes to paper towels to drain, then transfer to a serving dish, and sprinkle with lime juice.

I make this recipe alot- it's one of our favorite sweet potato recipes. I usually double the sugar\spice mixture and I skip all the steps- I just coat the sweet potatoes with oil and then with the sugar/spice mixture... it comes out really good. Read More

I think it would benefit people to know the size of the chunks of potatoes the recipe submitter used because that plays a huge role in cooking time. Mine were cut into 1/4 slices and they didn't cook all the way through in 30 minutes. As far as flavor goes it's the usual sweet potato flavor (we didn't have lime juice on hand). Read More

The taste can't be beat and the recipe is a wonderful way to get different vegetables to your family BUT way to much oil! It was too hard to try to strain the oil off after baking and I didn't want to put them on paper towel for fear of losing the wonderful sauce it created! I had doubled the recipe and I forgot the lime as well. I would recommend using a seasoned stoneware baking dish and just lightly coat the potatoes before tossing w/seasonings. That way you don't have oil to deal with after they are baked. Read More

My family just loved this but with feeding a diabetic I used olive oil and Brown Sugar Splenda. I just tossed everything into a pan and stirred once or twice. Nothing stuck to the glass baking dish and you couldn't tell it wasn't pure brown sugar. Note: Always use half the brown sugar splenda to what a recipe calls for. Read More

This is a great recipe! I used olive oil added some cayenne pepper and forgot all about the lime juice (I would have tried it if I remembered). I sliced thin (1/2 inch) slices and cooked at a higher temp (425) since I had something else in the oven at the same time. Easy to make goof proof and very tasty! Thank you! Read More

this is a great new way to serve sweet potatoes and I loved the lime juice at the end. I used just a little less than 1/4 cup of oil and had no grease problem Read More

I also forgot the lime juice at the end but this was an instant hit with the family!! Mine didn't come out too greasy at all and it wasn't too sweet either - just tasty!!! I used Canola oil to keep the cholesterol down and I also tipped it into a large mixing bowl to stir it a couple of times during cooking as 3 "decent" sized yams filled my casserole dish and I just couldn't stir them in the dish. Will DEFINITELY make this one again and again and again!!! Read More

I find it much easier to combine the chopped potatoes in a plastic bag with the olive oil and other ingredients. It provides an even coating and I can usually get away with adding less olive oil than the original recipe calls for. Always a hit! Read More

This was great very well received by my very picky family. I added ground ginger a little more cinnamon and a little more oil then mixed everything in the baking dish. It is excellent without the lime but incredible with it!! Hope you enjoy this receipe as much as we did!! Read More
