Sweet and Spicy Roasted Potatoes

Posted on Updated on

The sweet and smokey flavor of these potatoes is very tantalizing to the taste buds. Add a little spice for that extra heat. With very few ingredients, amateurs can’t go wrong with this recipe. This side dish is a healthy alternative to french fries. These roasted potatoes make a great accompaniment with my BBQ chicken (a recipe to be published along with a barbeque sauce in the very near future). If you can’t beat the heat, a good barbeque will do the trick! Prior to roasting potatoes, its important to wash the skin very well.

For this recipe, you will need:

  1. 3 large red potatoes quartered
  2. 3 large sweet potatoes quartered
  3. 1 large onion halved (do not remove peal till after roasted)
  4. 6 -8 garlic cloves (do not remove the peel till after roasted)
  5. 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  6. 2 teaspoons of brown sugar
  7. 1 teaspoon of paprika
  8. 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  9. 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary chopped
  10. 1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper and sea salt


Preheat  your oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, combined potatoes,onion,and garlic. Season with spices and drizzle with oil. Toss well till completely coated.  Transfer potato mixture to a roasting pan and roast for an hour or until potatoes are golden brown and tender in the middle.


Yields 4-6 servings
