    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.

      What a lovely way to jazz up a sweet potato ! Definitely some heat here (though I may tend to be liberal with the cayenne). DH & I really enjoyed this. With some ground lamb it made a delicious work lunch for me and just on it's own for a quick lunch at home. Sorry I forgot to take a picture, I'll be making this again and will then for sure. Thanks so much for posting, EK ! Made during ZWT#9 for my team, Tasty Testers :)

      I loved this potato! The spice mixture was great and the recipe is super easy. I have to admit that I put about 1/2 teaspoon of butter on each half when they were done. They went great with Cajun Chicken and Cajun Stuffed Tomatoes. Made for my fellow Tasty Tester for ZWT9. Thanks EK! :)

      I thought these sweet potatoes held great promise. They were extremely easy to prepare, which made for a hassle-free side dish to shrimp po boys. The spices used were ones I typically had on hand. DH, myself, and my dinner guest, however, didn't overly care for the combination of flavors once prepared. Made for ZWT9.
