Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Be sure to cut your sweet potatoes into similar sizes so your sweet potato hash bakes evenly on your sheet pan or dish.
  • Avoid overcrowding the pan as you want the sweet potatoes to roast and not steam. Use a large sheet pan or split it up into two pans if yours are small.
  • Add in other veggies like peppers or zucchini
  • Store leftovers in a container and place them in the fridge for 3-4 days.

How to Pick and Store Sweet Potatoes

Here’s what to look for when buying and storing potatoes for your sweet potato hash:

  • Make sure your sweet potatoes don’t have any blemishes or bruising to them.
  • Avoid sweet potatoes that look wrinkly.
  • When purchased, be sure to store your sweet potatoes in a cool dark place so they last longer such as a pantry or basement. Avoid storing in the fridge. At room temperature, they’ll at most last a week.

FAQs

Are Sweet Potatoes Healthy?

Sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber as well as vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C. They’re a delicious healthy addition to any diet!

Do I Have To Peel My Sweet Potatoes?

It’s up to you. Sweet potato skin has antioxidants in them so there’s no harm in keeping the skin on and eating it. If you are keeping the skin on, be sure to give it a good scrub under running water so it’s clean.

Can I Use Dried Herbs?

If you don’t have fresh herbs, you are more than welcome to use dried herbs. For every 1 tbsp of fresh herbs, you can substitute with 1 tsp of dried herbs.

What Else Can I Add to This?

Bell peppers and red onions are some of my favorite additions to this sheet pan sweet potato hash. You can also add small broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, mushrooms, and other veggies if you’d like. Also, you can serve with a side of sliced avocados for some extra healthy fats.

Additionally, you can also change the seasoning up by using whatever you have in your pantry! Try cajun seasoning, Italian seasoning, taco seasoning, chili seasoning, and more. This is the easiest way to change up the recipe without doing a lot of extra work.

How Can I Meal Prep This?

You can simply portion out the sheet pan sweet potato hash into airtight meal prep containers and once it has cooled, store it in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave.
