  5. Using your hands or spatula, toss diced sweet potatoes until they are evenly coated, then spread them out on the sheet pan. Again, do not overcrowd or overlap them.
  6. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and toss/stir sweet potatoes using a spatula. Spread them out again and bake for another 5-10 minutes. Check them at the 5-minute mark to make sure they are not burned (see Note 2).

Note 1:

Use more Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning if you like your sweet potatoes with more spice.

Note 2:

Oven temperatures may vary and you may need to cook the potatoes longer. Check frequently to make sure it is not burned since it is coated in brown sugar.
