Was having out-of-town friends stop for lunch on their way up the coast. Knew I wanted to roast sweet potatoes, but but forgot how high/how long ! Found about 30 recipes here -- ALL a tad different ! Followed directions here, except for cinnamon and nutmeg, and added 1/2 TBS of dried rosemary. Halved to recipe for 3 potatoes -- 1/2 cup olive oil. I placed the potatoes on a rimmed sheet and poured the oil mixture over -- likely my mistake. At 425*, the 1/4 inch slices were soft and the oil bubbling away, and obviously NEVER going to crisp, so took the slices out and let them bake at 400* for about 5 min., then put them in the warming drawer for about 20 min. VERY tasty -- but next time I will drain first. Thanks for posting, Carol. Happy Holidays !

These were OK, but they smelled a lot better than they they actually tasted. My kitchen smelled as if I had a sweet potato pie in the oven, even the kids were asking me what smelled so good. But we were a bit disappointed with the end result.

A tasty treat to go along with our cheeseburgers at lunch. I made as directed, but cut back a little on the cayenne as I was worried about the heat - I wish I had thrown it all in there, though! Made for the Groovy GastroGnomes, Family Picks, ZWT5.

I used my madoline and cut the peeled sweet potatoes into thin strips. They cooked just fine and tasted great. I love the spiciness here, but others might want to play with the amount of cayenne if they are feeding children.

I halved the recipe and just kind of eyeballed the amounts. My DH and I loved these potatoes! I cut them up like french fries and used a little smoked paprika to sprinkle over. Thanks! Made for the Epicurean Queens for Zaar World Tour 2009.

It is really quite spicy for my taste, although my hubbie and father in law really enjoyed them! I think I made a mistake in pouring some of the excess topping over the potatoes- this may have resulted in the excessive spicyness.

These are delicious potatoes, we really enjoyed this tasty treat. The roasted potatoes were nicely carmelized, tender and crunchy, the spices were a nice blend with the cayenne adding heat. A wonderful blending of spicy and sweet Thanks for sharing Carol.

Wow! These do have a bit of a kick but also the sweetness comes through. Very good!! I didn't peel my potatoes because I like the skin. Thanks so much for posting!!
