The sweetness of the potatoes is offset by the spiciness of the Cajun pepper. Adjust the pepper to taste. My family absolutely loves this recipe!

Thought this was a refreshing way to eat sweet potato (this is on page 4 of search results for 'sweet potato', with the other 4 pages being sweet potato casserole recipes). It took a while longer to cook. Eased up on the brown sugar as I don't love candied sweet potatoes. Great side dish to dinner with a super healthy veggie!

Good starting point, but it tasted a little bland to me. More Cajun seasoning is needed. I used 1 tsp. Tony Chachere's creole seasoning, but added a few shakes of garlic powder, cayenne pepper and black pepper. I baked it on a cookie sheet for 30 minutes at 375 degrees using the convection oven setting.
