Sweet Potato Cubes


This is probably my most popular side dish to make for my family. I like it because it is not your normal potato. I love the flavors that sweet potatoes bring to the table. Many people take sweet potatoes and add tons of butter and brown sugar and marshmallows to them. Do not get me wrong, that is an amazing way to utilize sweet potatoes, but I wanted to put a different take on them so they could accompany a more savory main dish. I did some experimenting by steaming them and boiling them but my favorite way to make them is baking them. I previously made a post for caramelized sweet potatoes which turned out great but there was that sugary component to them. This recipe uses simple ingredients and allows you to use this as a side dish for almost any main dish.

Ingredients: (makes about 1 1/2 Cups depending on the size of potato)

1 Large sweet potato, peeled and cut into cubes

1 T salt

2 T course ground black pepper

2 T Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cut sweet potato in to cubes all equal in size. This will help them cook evenly.

In a bowl combine potato cubes, salt, pepper, and oil. Toss until completely coated. Transfer to baking sheet.

Bake for 12-15 minutes until tender. Occasionally you are going to want to move the cubes around on the sheet to allow a nice crust to all sides of the cubes.



About kristinegough86

I have the passion to bake and love trying new recipes! I work at a school for children with disabilities as a manager of a cafe. This cafe allows the students learn the ability to work with the public and in the near future I am going to be able to bake with the students and let them learn about the love and passion there is to baking. :) I prefer baking over cooking although I do love to cook as well. I hardly ever repeat a recipe. I love my family, dogs, friends, and job. One day I will have my own bakery and I can not wait. Until then I am going to continue baking my little heart out.
