Tired of the same old baked sweet potato? Great for picnics and barbecues, these sweet potatoes are seasoned with a homemade herb and spice mix.
- Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC).
- In a small bowl, stir together paprika, brown sugar, black pepper, onion powder, thyme, rosemary, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.
- Slice the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. Brush each half with olive oil. Rub the season mix over the cut surface of each half. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, or in a shallow pan.
- Bake in preheated oven until tender, or about 1 hour.
