Melting Sweet Potatoes

Melting Sweet Potatoes are so tender and delicious. They literally melt in your mouth. Oven roasted sweet potatoes never tasted so good! They are nicely caramelized on the outside and wonderfully creamy and soft inside.

Melting Sweet Potatoes

 

This is the sweet potato version of one of my very favorite potato recipes- Melting Potatoes.

Sweet potatoes don’t get quite as crispy or caramelized as regular potatoes since their moisture content is much higher, but they still taste absolutely divine.

These Melting Sweet Potatoes are cooked at a very high temperature so it is important to NOT use a glass baking dish. They run the risk of shattering under high heat.

Melting Sweet Potatoes make a fabulous accompaniment to beef, chicken, or pork and the leftovers taste great diced and added to a salad.

You can use chicken, beef, or vegetable broth to make these potatoes. Your choice.
