Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes

So, I had made some veggie chili recently and was going to post that, but Brianna and I both ended up feeling a little bit yucky after we ate it, definitely ghetto, not so fabulous.

But last night I made a really easy and tasty side dish, honey roasted sweet potatoes.

It's a recipe by Ellie Krieger who you may know from the Food Network. (My brother actually interned for her. I recall him having to clean all the pots and pans in the men's room!)


  • 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.
