I made this little number to accompany some broiled lemon pepper salmon for a quick weeknight dinner, and was pleasantly surprised how yummy it was. I am trying to encorporate more vegies into my diet and this is fast and easy enough to keep in my collection of sides for good. I used a couple tablespoons of a homemade cajun seasoning mix I had on hand and just added some brown sugar and a little extra salt to the blend before coating the potatoes first with oil and then in the seasonings. I was a bit disappointed the potatoes were softer than I expected, but the flavor more than made up for that. Very nice.

I made this dish last night with some Cajun Chicken, and I didn't like the spice combination in this recipe at all. Too many different flavors going on for such a delicate vegetable. I won't be making this again, sorry!

I love sweet potatoes, and I've found my new favorite way to prepare them! I made this for PAC to serve with Golden Praline Ham. The flavors combined beautifully with just the right amount of heat from the cayenne. Very delicious!
