Sweet potatoes have been a favorite of Sam’s since I first started roasting and pureeing them for him as a little fella. From sweet potato fries to sweet potato casserole, it is one of the vegetables I can count on him devouring.

I always love looking back at photos of him with his orange tinted nose from eating so many sweet potatoes and carrots way back then. He was just the cutest! Still is, I think.

This easy skillet roasted version makes for a super simple and delicious side dish that is a weeknight staple around here. It’s definitely one of my favorites because it is just so incredibly quick and easy to peel, slice and toss them into the skillet with a few ingredients. I like to brown them for just a few minutes on the cooktop and then finish them off in the oven until they are tender throughout with a nice crisp exterior!

  1. Robyn, these look so good. I usually make fried sweet potatoes, but I will definitely try them roasted. So easy, less mess, less time standing over the stove. Definite winner. Pinned. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi Roblyn, these roasted sweet potatoes look so delicious. I’m going to try your recipe soon. 🙂

    Your recipe pics reminded me of my childhood days when my grandma used to make roasted slices of sweet potatoes and brush them with brown sugar syrup.

  3. My son loves roasted sweet potatoes too! We always have these at home as it’s such an easy way to get him to eat vegetables. We love munching on these with a side of homemade hummus made with loads of garlic, lemon, and cayenne pepper. Delish.

  4. These look much healthier than the ones my grandmother used to make for me which I devoured. They were covered in a sugary syrup as they basted in her iron skillet on the stove top. Will give these a try for a healthier option and a memory to boot!

  5. I LOVE sweet potatoes! My fave way to make them is baked and loaded, but that’s just for me. This looks great for the whole family. Thank-you!
