Easy Roasted Sweet Potato Bites – a simple, crispy and flavorful side to your next dinner or even the perfect salad topper that you won’t be able to stop eating!
Don’t you just love sweet potatoes? They are the perfect compliment to any meal – no matter what you add it to. Ok, I may be stretching that a bit. But I think you get my point on how delicious they are. I know what you’re thinking. I mentioned them being a great topper for salads. Yes, I promise you they are; whether soft or crispy. They are also a wonderful addition to a sandwich, sub or wrap.
Or even in my Sweet Potato taco Wraps with Jalapeño Avocado Sauce (recipe coming this week!)
This is also great as a side dish. It requires minimal ingredients and truly… minimal effort. Now, that’s a win win if you ask me. Especially if you’re pressed for time or just not in the mood for a complicated dish.
I chose to remove the skins, but that is completely optional. I am a fan of skins on as much as I am skins off. My only requirement with potato bites, fries, wedges, etc.? They have to be crispy. Because who wants mushy fries or wedges? Not this girl!
I find that in order to successfully crisp any kind of potato, they need to be tossed in a bit of olive oil and baking them at a high temperature. So toss the potatoes before coating with the seasonings.
Place them onto the prepared cookie/baking sheet, making sure to spread them apart so that they will bake evenly.
And in no time – you will be enjoying delicious, crispy sweet potato perfection. Anyone else dip theirs in either ketchup or mustard? I know that’s generally a white potato thing, but I promise it’s just as good with sweet potatoes!
They are even better dipped in my Greek Yogurt Spinach Guacamole. Give it a try. Avocado and sweet potato compliment each other very well.
