  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tsp Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Wash and peel sweet potatoes. Dice sweet potatoes into ~1-inch cubes
  • Place diced sweet potatoes onto a sheet pan. Do not overcrowd or overlap. Use two or more sheet pans if needed.
  • Drizzle sweet potatoes with olive oil, brown sugar and Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning (see Note 1).
  • Using your hands or spatula, toss diced sweet potatoes until they are evenly coated, then spread them out onto the sheet pan. Do not overcrowd or overlap them.
  • Bake in oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and toss/stir sweet potatoes using a spatula. Spread them out again without overlapping or overcrowding. Then bake for another 5-10 minutes. Check at the 5 minute mark to make sure they are not burned. (See Note 2)
  • Serve and enjoy!


Note 1 : Use more Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning if you like your sweet potatoes super spicy and less if you like it less spicy
Note 2: Oven temperature may vary, and you may need to cook the potatoes longer. Check frequently to make sure it is not burned since it is coated with brown sugar.
