Sweet & Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Ooooohhh, these were good! I was a bit skeptical that there were TOO many spices. I panicked and only put in 1 tbsp. of paprika rather than the 1 1/2 tbsp. that the recipe called for. I also upped the sugar as I like things sweet. And I cut the olive oil. Really, these were perfect. I will totally make these again. We had leftover ham and broccoli cauliflower salad to go along with this and it was a great meal.

Sweet & Spicy Sweet Potatoes

2 sweet potatoes (about 1 lb), peeled and cubed
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. brown sugar splenda blend
1 tbsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 pinch cayenne pepper

Put sweet potato chunks in a big bowl, drizzle olive oil over potatoes, then sprinkle the sugar and seasoning and toss until potatoes are evenly coated with the seasoning. Spread onto baking sheet. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, turn over and continue baking until they are golden and tender about 10 - 15 minutes.
