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!
We absolutely loved this recipe. DH swas recently diagnosed with Type II diabetes and I'm looking for healther ways to cook. I used Smart Balance in place of the butter and just sprinkled the spice combination on each half of our potato per each of our preference. Loved the fact that this did not have any sugar in them but still tasted just great. We halved one potato between the two of us and he still has leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Thanks Hope.
