Since finding this recipe two months ago, I have made these many times with great results! Cutting a raw sweet potato lengthwise is NOT an easy task, so choose the more narrow ones. Definitely use the ziptop bag method for seasoning. At the suggestion of other reviewers, I added more than just paprika. We enjoy garlic salt, onion powder, thyme, salt and pepper. Also I've found that you can cook these at 350, 375 or 400 and just adjust the baking time accordingly. Foil on your baking sheet makes for the easiest clean up! Read More

I guess I am just used to and like the brown sugar and butter method to sweet potatoes. I just don't think this recipe was for us. We did cook them a bit longer than the recipe called for and they did end up a bit greasy. I thank you for the post. Read More

I like this recipe A LOT b/c you can be creative. I am not a fan of sweet potatoes, but learned from this recipe that you can EASILY disguise the sweet potato taste and eat healthier. After reading the recipe reviews from this one, I raided the spice cupboard and came up with a perfect combination. I slice the potatoes in 1/4" round slices versus the sticks. In a large ziploc bag, I combined olive oil, garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper. I tossed the slices in the mixture and baked them on a pizza stone for 15 minutes on each side. In another bag I tried the brown sugar/garlic powder mixture someone else mentioned. It was good, but not as good as the first batch. MUST TRY!!!!! Read More

These were so awesome! My family devoured them....I baked them at 350 degrees for 50 minutes and that prevented the outside from getting done too fast. A new family favorite. Read More

The best way to eat sweet potatoes! You can use any spices you like. I usually cut mine into slices as opposed to sticks and I also toss them in a ziploc bag to coat with oil and spices. Easy healthy and delicious!! Read More

I really liked this recipe. I used a huge knife and easily cut the sweet potatoes into eighths. I used a pastry brush to apply canola oil to the potatoes. I made 1/3 with creole seasoning; 1/3 with nutmeg cinnamon salt and brown sugar; and 1/3 with salt only. I baked them at 350 for 50 minutes and they were wonderful. I liked the brown sugar mix the best. Read More

One word...WOW! I have never like sweet potatoes but my husband and I decided that today October 1st we are gonna start working out and eating healthier. So today for our first "healthy" meal I decided to make baked battered fish with sweet potato fries and collard greens. Wow! I didn't think I would like them but OMG they were awesome! I actually added a little more to the seasoning in the recipe; garlic powder onion powder paprika salt and pepper. I will definitely be using this recipe again and recommending it to my friends. Who says eating healthy has to taste bland! Read More

Yummm! These were great - the whole family gobbled them up. I sliced thin instead of stick at others' suggestion. I added basil garlic powder and parm cheese. I don't usually like sweet potatoes but I finally found a recipe I can love them with!! Read More

This is a good idea but I didn't like them as sticks with skins. Next time I'll peel the potatoes and slice them into rounds. I added additional seasonings -- 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and 1 Tbs. brown sugar for 4 average sized potatoes. The flavors and textures were great so I will DEFINITELY make these again.
