Yum!!! I will adjust my spices for more kick next time, but this recipe made me LOVE sweet potatoes!
My husband and I love these so much - and I finally got smart and made a whole spice shaker of the spice mix to keep on hand!
Very easy. Very good!
Love these! I added just 1/2 tsp. of brown sugar to the mix. I baked mine in the oven on non-stick foil in a sheet pan, drizzled with a bit of oil and salt for yummy skins. 400 degrees for 1 hour. Thanks for posting!
OH MAMA. . .I just licked my plate clean!!! OOOH Doggie is that spicy mixture awesome (I did add about a 1/4 tsp of brown sugar)! I made two HUGE sweet potatoes and baked them for 1 hour at 375 and they were completely overdone (they were mashed without having to be mashed LOL). I coated the outside with olive oil and a little bit of seasoning salt (which had garlic in it and WOW did that taste wonderful with the combo of spices inside of the tater). I made mine vegan with vegan margarine and served it aside a salad for a perfect lunch. I will certainly make this again and will actually use that spice mixture on roast veggies in the future (perhaps a mixture of sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, carrots and radishes). YUM! UPDATE: So this is one of my favorite lunches and I make it often. I use a LOT of the spice on each potato and I also started using a little stevia instead of the brown sugar and that is just as tasty with less calories!
Love the kick from the cayenne & chili powder!!
I baked my sweet potatoes in the crockpot, so the skins were not attractive looking. Spooned the potato out of the jackets and mashed with a fork and topped with the spice blend. We loved these! I added a little bit of brown sugar for my son, and he was looking around for more when he was done. Will definitely make again.
Yummy yum!!! I cut my sweet potatoes into thick cubes and roasted them in the oven at 425 and they came out great. I also added a little brown sugar and it was a great balance between spicy and sweet. Thanks Mama!
Reluctantly gave this a try and decidedly glad I did! All I can say is "WOW"--this exceeded my expectations and I know I will try this in the future (maybe as early as tomorrow!) I loved how the cayenne and chili powder were perfectly balanced with the cinnamon...never would've guessed that it would taste this great, but so glad I know that now. Thank you!
