I've been trying to find an alternative to our usual roasted potatoes. This is a combo of a few recipes I've seen. The seasoned oil after tossing has a really neat flavour. (I was cooking them along side a roasted chicken so the temperature was lower and cooking time is longer. I have no doubt these could be done faster at a higher temp. Based on recipes I've seen, 425 Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes)

Directions

  1. Heat 1 Tbsp of the oil in a pan.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 (I was cooking them along side a roasted chicken so the temperature was lower and cooking time is longer. I have no doubt these could be done faster at a higher temperature Based on recipes I've seen, 425 Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes).
  3. Slice onions and sautee until tender and brown at the edges.
  4. Peel and wash potatoes then slice into rounds about a centimetre thick.
  5. Combine potatoes, chili powder, brown sugar, salt and remaining oil in a bowl, toss to coat evenly.
  6. Add sauteed onions and continue to toss to combine flavours.
  7. Spread potato and onion mixture evenly on a baking sheet with edges or a large roasting pan that will allow the potatoes to barely overlap.
  8. Toss halfway through to ensure coating and cooking is even.

I do love sweet potatoes & always appreciate finding new ways to prepare them, whether sweet or not, & your recipe makes for a very flavorful, satisfying dish of 'em! The only thing I changed was to leave the peel on the potatoes & go from there! You have a very nice keeper of a recipe here! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]

These had a lovely spicy taste which we enjoyed though may have to cut it back to 1/2 to 3/4 of a teaspoon of the chilli (mine is very hot) and the DM made comment but she battled her way through and ate her serve. I used 3 medium potatoes for 3 of us and 1 large onion though next time I won't worry of sauteing it first as it ended up burnt but toss in about a teaspoon of oil and I only used 1 tablespoon in the potatoes (a total of 1 1/4 tablespoons). Thank you Nymphadora Tonks for a different way of spicing up sweet potatoe, made for All You Can Cook Buffet - Special Event.
