Roasted Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Roasted Spicy Sweet Potatoes at Miz Helens Country Cottage
We love sweet potatoes here at the cottage and our Roasted Spicy Sweet Potatoes are a favorite. We live in a rural area that produces a lot of sweet potatoes and during harvest time they are plentiful, fresh and delicious. We grow sweet potatoes here in our vegetable garden and these potatoes came right out of the garden. They are seasoned with a delicious spice mix and then roasted, until tender on the inside and just roasted on the outside. These sweet potatoes will be a great side dish for any meal and I have even used these potatoes in a soup and a casserole. I like to make a pan of this recipe and freeze them for stews, soups, and casseroles, this is a very versatile recipe.

3 large sweet potatoes, peeled, cubed
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon all-spice
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon  cayenne pepper
Peel the potatoes and cube them about the same size so they will all cook evenly.
Place the cubed sweet potatoes onto a full size sheet pan.
Drizzle the olive oil over the potatoes, and toss together to cover them well.
In a small mixing bowl, stir together the cinnamon, all-spice, salt and cayenne.
Sprinkle the spice mix over the sweet potatoes then toss them, making sure they are covered with spice and oil.
Roast in the oven at 425 degrees for about 25 to 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and cool on a cooling rack for at least 10 minutes.
Serve warm.
If you are freezing bring the potatoes to room temperature, then refrigerate for 2 hours, then bag in a freezer bag, freeze up to 3 months.
