Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I found this recipe on Food Network. I had some sweet potatoes and wanted to do something different with them and this one caught my eye. Very easy to make and has lots of flavor from the honey and lemon.


2 pounds red-skinned sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch pieces and put in a 9 by 13 baking dish.

In a small bowl whisk together olive oil, honey and lemon juice. Pour mixture over potatoes and toss to coat.

Sprinkle with the salt, and bake, stirring occasionally, for about 1 hour, until potatoes are tender.
