My family fell in love with the combination of sweet and spicy in this potato side dish the very first time they tried it. It goes great with poultry...and looks so pretty on the dinner table. I try to serve it often. --Lynn Thomas London, Ontario

So yummy! I was looking for a sweet potato recipe without alot of added sugar and my hubby and I thought this was really good (although I might reduce the sugar a bit next time). I used tin foil in the bottom of my baking pan and am so glad I did as everything caramalized into a very sticky mess. Read More

Very tasty! Definitely sweet with a nice touch of spice and a little kick from the cayenne - not your average sweet potato... You can adjust the cayenne to your tastes and watch your cooking time. These potatoes were done in about 30-35 minutes. Read More

It exceeding our expectations (even our 1 and 3 year old loved it). I used half of the brown sugar and put in a 1/2 tsp of curry powder instead of Cayenne (I was out of Cayenne). Read More

The best ever. Was so enjoyable. I found they only needed to be in the oven for about 30 mins... they cooked very fast. I lowered the temp at about 25 mins to 200 and waited until my food was ready. They were perfect. I just like to add these did not come out crunchy if thats the taste your looking for. YUM! Read More

AMAZING! I was looking for a sweet potato recipe that wasn't sweet. To kick it up a notch, I used 1 minced hot pepper instead of the dried or ground stuff. I cut the sweet potatoes into smaller chunks and left the skin on so it would cook faster (ready in 30 min) and have more fiber. I will definitely make this dish again! Read More

I love the fact that this recipe is slightly spicy! The slight heat lends so much to the sweet potato - they go perfectly together. I do add a vidallia onion and some fresh rosemary to the mixture. Read More

I absolutely loved these, I think next time, I will reduce the amount of oil and turn on the broiler for the last 5-10 minutes to make them crisp. Read More

This was delicious. I doubled the recipe and used half yams and half regular sweet potatoes and it turned out great. All of us enjoyed the yellow sweet potatoes best, so I will probably just use those next time. Read More

Great side dish with just enough kick! I followed the recipe exactly and would not change a thing. I did line the baking dish w/ foil to make clean-up easier! Thanks for a super recipe! Read More
