A couple of quick shakes of the bag and they were coated to perfection. I microwaved this dish, using 1/3 of the recommended cooking time. We loved the results!

"This recipe is awesome. I did not have brown sugar or onion powder, but it still came out great. I cut my sweet potatoes into thin fry shapes and tossed them in a bag with everything else.

After about 5 minutes of cooling time, my "non-sweet potato eating" family had already eaten a forth of them right from the cookie sheet.

I never liked them before, but we have eaten them twic..." See moree a week since I found this recipe! I altered it a little- decreased the brown sugar to 1/2 t, added a favorite cajun spice blend, sliced the potatoes in 1/4 inch rounds and coated with olive oil cooking spray, the sprinkled w/ seasonings. Bake @ 400 for 20-30 min. Delicious! Thanks for sharing this!!!"
