A few months ago I shared this Crispy Sheet Pan Roasted Potatoes recipe and you all went CRAZY for it. So many people messaged me raving about them and even posted pictures of the potatoes with their dinners which totally makes my day.
Since they were so popular, I figured I’d share something equally delicious and somewhat similar – these Crispy Garlic Thyme Roasted Sweet Potatoes!
These Crispy Garlic Thyme Roasted Sweet Potatoes are basically the fancier, grown up version of the Crispy Sheet Pan Roasted Potatoes and if you like carbs/ things that are loaded with flavor + easy to make – you are gonna be a fan of these!
(I mean, let’s be real WHO doesn’t like carbs in any/all forms??)
I’m not going to lie… sweet potatoes are by no means my favorite side dish. I will pick white potatoes over sweet potatoes EVERY time. I find that when the potatoes are not prepared correctly, they can become super mushy, and just bleh.
When I’m eating potatoes they either have to be crispy, or mashed (like these Paleo Maple Whipped Sweet Potatoes).. I don’t want something in between!
Thankfully, these potatoes actually get crispy on the outside which I have yet to find in other roasted potato recipes, and the garlic thyme flavor combo is seriously yummy!
I love pairing these alongside chicken or steak for dinner – but they’re also great for meal prepping and putting in a veggie/grain bowl if that’s your jam! Since they’re paleo, whole 30 and vegan – pretty much anyone can enjoy them!
Ingredients for crispy roasted sweet potatoes:
These potatoes are definitely going to be a new staple for your dinners, lunches, and meal prepping! They’re super simple, taste amazing + go well with just about anything! I think you’re going to love them just as much as we do!
Tips for crispy roasted potatoes:
Getting crispy potatoes is not as hard as you think! Here are a few things to do for super crispy oven roasted potatoes:
Cut in small pieces- Cut the potatoes in 1/2 inch small pieces so they can get browned on all edges. Larger pieces will work but will need more time.
Keep your oven at a high temp. Roasting the potatoes at 450 for almost an hour is what will give them that perfectly crunchy outside! If your potatoes don’t seem crispy after 40 minutes, maybe give them a few more minutes or broil them. Everyone’s oven is a little different and yours just may require a few more minutes!
Evenly spread out the potatoes – Don’t stack them on top of one another – spread your potatoes out on the baking sheet and try not to overcrowd them.
Substitutions for these sheet pan sweet potatoes:
Potatoes– Any potato will work in this recipe, but see above for the best potatoes for roasting.
Reheating these potatoes:
These potatoes reheat really well. They’ll last for up to 5 days in an air tight container in your refrigerator.
I have reheated them in the toaster oven, oven, or a pan to reheat. If you microwave them, they will not be as crispy – but they’re still tasty!
To reheat in your oven or toaster oven, set the oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat liner. Place in the oven for 5-10 minutes, tossing halfway, until potatoes are warm and crisp on the outside.
To reheat in a pan: spray your pan lightly with olive oil. Turn up to high heat. Add potatoes to the pan. Heat for 4-5 minutes, until potatoes are crisp on the outside, stirring occasionally.
