Good Recipe! I've never had sweet potato fries before but have friends who rave about them, so I decided to try it. I used this recipe as a base and since i didn't have maple sugar on hand I added a few other ingredients based on my friends suggestions. I peeled the skin of the potatoes, then I cut the fries in 1/2" thick french fry slices. I seasoned the fries in a dry rub of cayenne pepper, salt, paprika, cinnamon, brown sugar, and olive oil. I baked them on a lighly oiled baking sheet and sprinkled a bit of brown sugar on them during the last 5 minutes. These were very tasty and good. I will definitely be making them again. I can only imagine how the maple syrup would have tasted. I'm sure it would have really added a nice nutty caramel flavor to these wondrous treats.
Chips turned out very crispy and tasty. Next time I'll use half the amount of salt, and I used olive oil instead of butter. Instead of brushing the mixture on the chips, I shook the chips, oil & seasonings in a large baggie. For those who complained the chips were soggy or burned: First issue is that you have to slice these ridiculously thin - I used a chef's knife to do it. You have to watch them like a hawk to avoid burning. You have to turn them in the middle of cooking. You need to remove the ones that are thinner & cooking faster as they get crisp/brown, and you need to run the final ones that aren't yet crips under the broiler. I will make these again. Oh - I would cook at least double to get enough chips to make it worth your while.
For some reason, I can't get sweet potatoes to come out of the oven like they do when deep fried... They always come out limp and not like fries or chips at all... they still taste good, but I am going to give up on the idea that they will be like french fries. The flavor of these was good, a little too spicy for my family though.
I liked this recipe quite simple. I just put everything in a bowl and tossed the sweet potatoes in . I did not have any cayenne pepper so I made them Sweet sweet potatoes and added cinammon. Mine were not soggy and were fantastic!thanks!
I was not afan of sweet potatoes untlil my sister-in-law tricked me into eating Sweet Patatoe Souffle'. I absolutely love french fried sweet ptatoes so I wanted to try these because they are baked. i used half of maple syrup the 2nd time I made these....perfect. Also I put my fries on a rack and the rack on my cookie sheet andthey were realy crisp. YUM, yum, yum
these were pretty good! i sprayed the foil pans with olive oil spray first so they wouldn't stick. i also reduced the time to 7 mins the first side and 6 mins the second side. also i substituted cayenne pepper for fresh ground pepper and sprinkled the second side with sea salt. yum!
