sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons

Yum!! I was attracted by the rave reviews by males (husbands, fiances) :) My husband likes spice and it wasn't too sweet for him like other sweet potatoe dishes. I took the suggestions to add a teaspoon of Cinnamon and a tablespoon of Brown Sugar. I only used 1 teaspoon of Paprika rather than 1 1/2 Tablespoons (?) and also left out the poultry seasoning. I used Olive Oil, adding only enough to cover the amount of potatoes I had so not quite 3T. I also oiled the glass dish I cooked them in so altogether, there was plenty of oil to not burn to the dish yet not too much. I look forward to making this again and using some of the other tips to create different flavors, like using fajita seasoning or steak seasoning instead of poultry seasoning. This recipe has opened my mind to the options of flavors (not to mention healthier dishes)for Sweet Potatoes, other than the typical super sweet, marshmallows, maple syrup, etc.
I prepared this recipe as written. It was good, but not extraordinary.
This was FANTASTIC!!!! It was sooo delicious! I will definitely make this again. I used 2 tbsp. of brown sugar instead of the suggested 2 tsp. I did not have poultry powder, so I used McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning. I used fresh garlic instead of powdered. I used the suggestion of a previous reviewer -"Adrienne" and added some cinnamon. Thanks for the great delicious recipe!
This was a great recipe. I altered it slightly to fit the spices I had. Plus we don't like things that are too spicy. I omitted the cayenne pepper, the poultry seasoning, and the onion powder, and added 1/2 tsp of seasoning salt. I believe my sweet potatoes were on the smaller side. Instead of baking in the oven, I put the whole mixture in the crockpot for 3 hours and had a lovely side dish. Will be making this recipe again for Thanksgiving this year!
Awesome recipe! We followed the recipe exactly omitting the poultry seasoning (we have none) and am having them again tonight. If you take the time to chop the potatoes a little smaller...then every bite gets more crispy and tasteful. We mix everything in a large ziploc bag and dump them on our baking sheet. Bake them at 425 for 20 - 25 mins flipping halfway through. Easy and delicious! One of our favs!
This was wonderful! I didn't have poultry seasoning or the chilli powder, but I added 1 tsp of cinnamon. It was perfect! A definite do again!
First time making sweet potatoes. Created my own spice mixture - 1 tbs. cumin, 1/2 tsp. chili powder, 1/4 tsp. curry powder, and salt. Cut the sweet potatoes into thin slices, along with garlic cloves. Would definitely make again!!
This was a delicious recipe! It tasted just like the title suggests - sweet and spicy. The only changes I made were to accidentally double the black pepper, and to omit the poultry seasoning because I didn't have any. This is a recipe I would gladly make again and again!
