Lemony Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min.


3 servings

These sweet potatoes became a family tradition when I was a child and now is a one of my family’s favorites. The flavor of fresh lemon compliments the sweet potatoes and the touch of brown sugar results in a nice glaze.


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest


  1. Place sweet potatoes in a greased 1-qt. baking dish. Combine the butter, lemon juice and salt; drizzle over sweet potatoes. Sprinkle with brown sugar and lemon zest.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until potatoes are tender, stirring every 15 minutes. Stir before serving.
