The shake and bake coating on these sweet potatoes only takes a few minutes of prep time and produces the crispiest, most flavorful sweet potatoes ever.

The combination of the sweetness of the sweet potato coated in a savory mixture of breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, and parmesan cheese is simply divine. These sweet potatoes pair well with chicken, pork, or steak or they are a great addition to a vegetarian meal. They also make a delicious snack. I usually eat them right off the baking sheet. They’re that good.

These Shake and Bake Ranch Potatoes are another must try.

To make Shake and Bake Sweet Potatoes, combine a packet of Italian dressing mix with 1/2 cup of bread crumbs and some pepper in a ziptop bag. Add about 5 cups of diced sweet potatoes and shake to coat them.

Next add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of melted butter plus some grated Parmesan cheese. Shake the bag again and then dump the full contents of the bag onto a baking sheet.  I think the combination of olive oil and butter adds extra flavor, but you could use all olive oil.

Bake the sweet potatoes for 15 minutes in a 400 degree F oven. Give them a stir and then bake for another 15 minutes. Next, watch them disappear in a hurry.

  1. The Panko didn’t stick at all. I’m left with a sheet pan of toasted breadcrumbs and roasted sweet potato chunks.

  2. Flavor was great. My coating did not stick well though. Like sweet potatoes with crumbles. 🙂
