Wow, it's November! It seems like it was just yesterday that I was complaining about summer ending. And now we're smack-dab in the middle of fall.

Fall! When everything is pumpkin flavored!

Fall! When The Real Housewives of Atlanta is back on TV!

Fall! When sweet potatoes are plentiful!

So I decided to come up with a delicious sweet potato recipe for you. I thought to myself, "Hey! It's fall! And I haven't posted any sweet potato recipes yet this season!"

Then while I was editing the photos for this post, I realized: oh, I did sweet potato gnocchi last week. I did do a sweet potato recipe this season. Oops. I guess since it was pasta, somehow it didn't feel like a sweet potato recipe. Or something.

But that's okay, right? Because we can all use easy side dish ideas and that's exactly what this Apple Cider Glazed Sweet Potatoes recipe is--easy! The potatoes are roasted in the oven until they're tender and then glazed with an apple cider reduction. Simple!

Back on the subject of fall, are you following my Fall Recipes board on Pinterest? I'm collecting all kinds of tasty fall foods there.

    I love how simple this recipe is and apples sound like they would go perfectly with sweet potatoes.


  2. Heidi @ Food Doodles says

    That reduction sounds incredible!! I think this is something I need to try 😀


  3. Shirley says

    I love apple cider like nobody's business. Seriously, I could chug a jug a day if my conscience would let me. And I really like sweet potatoes so I'll have to make this soon.


    • Kiersten says

      We have a big jug in the fridge right now. Think I might throw a cinnamon stick in a saucepan and heat some up tonight.


  4. Jennie @themessybakerblog says

    I love sweet potatoes, and these look delicious. I love the glaze. I happen to have all of the ingredients on hand, so this recipe is happening this weekend.


    • Kiersten says

      I hope you like them! Roasted sweet potatoes are good to begin with, but apple cider makes everything even better. 🙂


  5. Kelly @ Texas Type A Mom says

    I love this as an alternative to the marshmallow mess of my youth!


  6. Sarah says

    I love sweet potatoes in any way shape or form! But I also love that bowl... who makes it?


  7. Kristina says

    I have made these several times and have a batch in the oven right now. This is by far my new favorite way to eat sweet potatoes! My husband likes things sweet so I add some brown sugar to the cider before reducing, and it's fantastic. Thank you for this tasty and simple dish!


    • Kiersten says

      I'm so glad you enjoy them! 😀


    • Eunice Sklopan says

      Do you use regular cider instead of spiced cider? How much brown sugar or other ingredients? Thank you
      My mom made a glazed sweet potato that I remember as the best ever and it had a ham glaze; I would love to eat that again! I wasn’t into cooking so never learned her receipies.


      • Katie Trant says

        Hey Eunice, we've only tested this recipe with spiced cider. There's no need for brown sugar since the cider is already sweet, and when you make the reduction it thickens nicely.


  8. Brenda says

    would this work with winter squashes too? why not... going to try I think....


    • Kiersten says

      I think it would work well with winter squash too!


  9. Sadie says

    Serves 4? No way! I say call this an entrée and eat the whole pan by yourself 😛


    • Kiersten says

      That would definitely be easy to do! 🙂


  10. Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche says

    I've never thought of glazing vegetables with cider before, love it! Turns an already autumnal vegetable even mooore autumnal! 🙂


  11. Judee@ Gluten Free A-Z says

    These look amazing. Can they be made in advance like two days?


    • Kiersten says

      I've never tried making them in advance, so I can't say for sure.


  12. Amy says

    I have local apple cider....what do I add to make it spiced?


    • Kiersten says

      You could add mulling spices to it or find a recipe for spiced apple cider. The local apple cider that I buy is already spiced, so I've never had to add the spices myself.


  13. Tiana Gustafson says

    Thank you so much for this amazing looking recipe! I love healthy recipes and I will look forward to trying it out and sharing it with my followers. As Arnold says "I'll be back" 🙂 Thanks again!


    • Kiersten says

      Thanks for sharing!


  14. Cindy says

    I just made these for our Thanksgiving dinner. I couldn't find spiced apple cider so I used the regular kind. I add cinnamon and apple pie spice --- a dash of each. They were delicious! Thanks for sharing!


  15. Alyssa says

    I'm always trying to find ways to use up that little bit of leftover Apple Cider in my fridge (sometimes a gallon is too much!). Looks like I 'll be saving this recipe, thanks for sharing :).
