  • 4 pounds sweet potatoes (cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 1/2 cup diced, red onion
  • 4 large cloves garlic (peeled and smashed with a knife)
  • 1/4 cup Garlic and Lemon Infused Olive Oil (or oil of your choice)
  • sea salt and black pepper (to taste - see Notes for additional seasoning options)


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line two baking sheets with foil, parchment, or a silicone liner. Set aside.
  • Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch cubes.
  • Divide the potatoes between the two baking sheets. Add the chopped onions and garlic. Toss with olive oil* and season with salt and pepper**.
  • Roast the potatoes in the oven for 15 minutes. Use a thin, metal spatula to flip the potatoes and continue roasting until the potatoes are tender and browned, 15 to 20 minutes more.
  • Serve immediately, or allow to cool completely on the baking sheets, then place in and airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.


  • All oven are different, your cooking times may be different as well.
  • White sweet potatoes, yams, even regular potatoes can be used in this recipe. Keep an eye on them!
  • *I used Garlic and Lemon Infused Olive Oil on one batch. I used bacon grease from my Oven Baked Bacon (recipe coming soon) for the second batch.
  • **To kick up the flavor a bit more add 3 teaspoons of Southwest Seasoning or Taco Seasoning to each tray, toss to combine.
  • For a sweeter version, add 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg. Drizzle with honey 15 minutes before pulling them out of the oven.
