Baked with nutmeg and cinnamon mmmm tastes like pumpkin pie. My mom kills me with this every time she makes it because she throws in alot of butter.

i cut it up in slices, lay it on a piece of aluminum foil, sprinkle them with a little bit of cinammon, and place it in the oven to broil...or roast...or do whatever it does in the oven.

I nuke them, let them cool and eat them skin and all. They don't even need anything to taste great.

I like mine slightly spicy to counteract the natural sweetness. So I cut them into fries, dribble with a bit of olive oil, and sprinkle them with a spice blend: cumin, coriander, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Then bake them until crispy - yum!

Sweet potatos

I like spicy fies like this too. Mashed with a little rice milk, baked with cinnamon, ginger, or a little garlic. Brushed with olive oil and grilled. Made into pancakes, biscuits, or anything else!

oven roasted with oregano, basil, onion, garlic, and savoury. I don't like adding anything sweet to sweet potatoes...

I also like to add a little sweetener - a packet of Splenda or Sweet n Low.

If you prefer the flavor of brown sugar, you can use the brown Splenda, but it's a blend of Splenda and actual brown sugar, so take those extra calories into consideration. I don't use sugar at all, so if I really need the brown, I use Brown Sweet n Low.
