Instructions

PREP

  • Preheat oven to 425° Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Set aside.
  • Peel and cut sweet potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Add to a large bowl and season with salt.

MAKING THE HONEY-LEMON BUTTER

  • Add butter and olive oil to a small saucepan. Simmer over medium heat until the butter has melted. Add lemon juice, lemon zest, and honey. Simmer for one minute on low heat.
  • Pour the honey-lemon butter over the sweet potatoes. Toss well to make sure the sweet potatoes are evenly coated.

ROASTING

  • Transfer sweet potatoes onto the baking sheet and roast for 25 minutes. Check for doneness and add additional time if needed.

Notes

*Roasting time can vary between ovens. If the sweet potatoes haven't caramelized to your liking, allow them to roast for an additional few minutes. 
UPDATE: Roasting the sweet potatoes for 25 minutes used to be perfect with my old oven. I got a new oven in 2021 and achieving those perfectly roasted sweet potatoes now takes between 28-30 minutes.
