This is a must at your holiday dinner table, It has just the right balance of sweet and spicy --- cooking time will vary depending on the size you cut the sweet potatoes you will love these!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a resealable plastic bag toss the cubed sweet potatoes with melted butter or oil; add the rest of ingredients; toss well to coat.
  2. Transfer to a greased baking dish (large enough to hold the potatoes in one layer).
  3. Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for about 22-25 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are tender but not too soft (tossing with a wooden spoon or spatula about every 15-20 minutes, baking time will vary depending on the size you cut the potatoes).
  4. *NOTE* careful not to over bake as the potatoes will become mushy.
  5. Delicious!

Really Awesome. I found it was not necessary to put the potatoes in a plastic zip bag. Mixing them in a bowl did a good job too. I spit the brown sugar mixture with splenda.I also added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the mixture and it was fabu!

Very nice! I like that it cooks rather quickly. I added some cumin and ground coriander, too. Definitely a "make-again"!

Delicious! I used all of the ingredients, but I did not follow the exact directions. I mixed the butter, brown, sugar, and spices all together in a bowl and poured over the sliced sweet potatoes in the pan and tossed them together. I also baked mine longer than the suggested time because we like our roasted vegetables to get brown and slightly crispy at the edges. These were absolutely delicious though, and I will definitely make them again and again! Thank you so much for sharing!
