Candied Sweet Potato Tips:

  • Dicing Potatoes – When I am dicing up the sweet potatoes to cook, we try to make them about the same size. This way they cook evenly and about the same time. You can dice the sweet potatoes or slice them.
  • Let Potatoes Cook – When you cook potatoes on the griddle, make sure you let them cook without moving around. This creates a crispy texture.
  • Fork Tender Potatoes – Make sure you potatoes are fork tender before removing them from the griddle. I also like them to have a crispy golden brown texture before removing them.
  • Hot Griddle – To prevent potatoes from sticking, make sure griddle has reached a medium high heat and oiled before placing potatoes on the griddle.
  • Brown Sugar Sauce – Make sure the diced sweet potatoes are covered in the brown sugar sugar before removing from the griddle.

Can I Make Candied Sweet Potatoes in the Oven?

Yes, this recipe can be made in the oven. The ingredients will remain the same but they will be put in a casserole dish instead of placing on the griddle. Place the baking dish in a preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes to 20 minutes.

Make sure the sweet potatoes are covered with the brown sugar mixture and serve.
