This is a good sweet potato fries recipe but I would make a few adjustments: bake in a glass cake pan - they don't stick quite so much and clean up is a lot easier. I toss mine with just enough oil to coat and whatever seasonings I want (salt pepper and garlic and sometimes some rosemary). Also I bake mine at 400 degrees for 20 minutes turning halfway through. You can always bake them for longer if they are not quite done but can't go back in time if you cook them too long! Read More

It was alright but not very different than regular oven roasted sweet potato. I would like to find a way to make them more crispy on the outside. Read More

These turned out great! I see a lot of people saying they weren't crispy enough. If you soak them in cold water for about 45 minutes before baking they will crisp up nicely. Read More

I make these often. I cut them so that they're circular. I use olive oil and bit of salt - no garlic. If you need them done quick broil them flipping half-way through - only takes a couple minutes to cook them this way! Read More

This is a popular recipe in my house always make it for holiday table. I do not use sea salt - comes out too salty; I use the same amount of kosher salt. I also add a pinch of chili pepper to the spice mix. After consulting with my friends used to Southern cuisine I now add a pinch of nutmeg and ground cloves to the spice mix to enhance the flavor Read More

This turn awesome and little bit healthier than fried potatoes. I did some changes adding parsley to the mix and olive oil instead of soybean oil. I put the potatoes on the sprayed pan and some extra olive oil over that (less than 1 teaspoon) baked the first side for 30 min. and turn over the sweet potatoes and drops of olive oil left them baked for other 15 min. and they were just amazing! Crispy outside and tender inside. Read More

These were delicious even though I forgot the garlic powder and used olive oil. I didn't measure anything basically just sprinkled and tossed everything right in the glass pan used to bake them in. Read More
