Maple Cinnamon Sheet Pan Sweet Potatoes


Posting these Maple Cinnamon Sheet Pan Sweet Potatoes before Christmas in case you want to switch up your sides this year! I am always a fluffy mashed potatoes kind of girl. But these sweet potatoes will be making an appearance on Christmas Day, because they are so dang good! These sheet pan sweet potatoes are sweet, with a hint of cinnamon and have the most delectable crispy edges. Leaving the skin on helps with the crispy edges while keeping the middles tender and perfect.

I can’t believe Christmas is only a few days away. I have been done my shopping for ages now and my Christmas dinner menu has been planned for a few weeks now at least.

If you’re wondering what I am cooking up this year, you already know it will be these Maple Cinnamon Sheet Pan Sweet Potatoes, Creamy Garlic Thyme Mashed Potatoes, A store-bought holiday roast, homemade gravy (do you want a gravy recipe?! Mine is so basic, I never even thought to share it!). I’ll definitely be making Fluffy Maple Butter Dinner Rolls, and the ginger carrots from my cookbook!

These sweet potatoes are so easy!

You just wash your sweet potatoes, slice into rounds. Layer onto a sheet pan, drizzle with the sauce and bake. No flipping required… it really could not be easier to get the most perfect sweet potatoes.
