"The sweetness of the potatoes is offset by the spiciness of the Cajun pepper. Adjust the pepper to taste. My family absolutely loves this recipe!"

sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
Cajun pepper seasoning
Wonderful.. I dont like sweet potatoes with a lot of sugar, but the cajun seaoning really tempered that.. was wonderful. I ate too many but it was delicious. I baked these on my silpat.. no sticking
Thought this was a refreshing way to eat sweet potato (this is on page 4 of search results for 'sweet potato', with the other 4 pages being sweet potato casserole recipes). It took a while longer to cook. Eased up on the brown sugar as I don't love candied sweet potatoes. Great side dish to dinner with a super healthy veggie!
Good starting point, but it tasted a little bland to me. More Cajun seasoning is needed. I used 1 tsp. Tony Chachere's creole seasoning, but added a few shakes of garlic powder, cayenne pepper and black pepper. I baked it on a cookie sheet for 30 minutes at 375 degrees using the convection oven setting.
I've made a very similar version for years, omitting the brown sugar, and simply cutting the sweet potatoes in half, rubbing with a little oil and sprinkling on the Cajun seasoning. It's a more diabetic friendly version and absolutely delicious. I'm sure the brown sugar in this recipe would work well also.
I loved this recipe. Like the others, I omitted the brown sugar altogether and it was amazing. I put the potatoes on a low broil setting in the last 2 minutes to crisp them up. They were a HUGE hit!!!
This recipe was pretty darn good! I added marshmallows on top, it helped with the kick! Definitely recommend A+++++
I didn't have any cajun seasoning on hand so substituted it for a smokey mesquite seasoning I had. Still turned out amazing. Will make again!
