You can add your own spices to it, just be sure the spices don’t clash with the sauce you will serve it with.

Also with large sweet potatoes, I sometimes use cookie cutters to cut out shapes that excite children and impress adults.

It can be cut into wedges for roasted sweet potato fries or wedges.
