Instructions

  1. 1Heat the oven to 450°F and arrange a rack in the upper third.
  2. 2Wash and scrub the sweet potatoes. Cut them into 1-1/4-inch chunks and place in a large bowl.
  3. 3Add the brown sugar, a few tablespoons of oil (just enough to coat), a few large pinches of salt, and a couple of pinches of pepper and mix until the sweet potatoes are evenly coated. Spread on a baking sheet in an even layer. Bake, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potatoes are lightly browned and roasted, about 30 minutes.
