sweet potatoes, peeled
packed light brown sugar
Boiled potatoes longer (10 minutes). Sliced into fries and spread onto baking pan coated with Pam Spray. Mixed melted butter and brown sugar and spread over potatoes, stirring around. Sprinkled some cinnamon on top of potatoes and baked instead of frying. For the last ten minutes, adjusted oven from BAKE to BROIL. Turn over several times while baking.
I tried these tonight cause my husband was wanting some sweet potatoe french fries. Well the recipe turned out to be the texture of baked sweet potatoes. I made two batches the first batch was alright and the brown sugar wasn't that sticky but they were very very sugary. The second batch I left them in a little bit longer and the sugar stuck together and the potatoes stuck together. It tasted like a ball of sugar going down. I suggest if you are trying to french fry use a deep fryer and through your sweet potatoes in there. My husband and I are Sweet Potatoe lovers and we said we wouldn't do this recipe again. Hope that helps.
These were soooo good. I used I can't believe it's not butter and boiled the sweet potatoes for 10 min (they were large). I will be making this again soon. Thank you
Great recipe with some modifications. I peeled and sliced my potatoes before boiling for 5-6 min. While they were draining I melted 1 stick butter in the pan and added 1/2 onion sliced thinly, then added a dash of cinnamon and only 1 cup loosely packed brown sugar. After a few minutes I tossed in the potatoes and let them cook another 5-10 min. Everyone liked them!
I cannot say anything about this particular recipe. However while growing up, I am from Texas. My mother always just peeled and cut the sweet potatoes into round slices and then just steam fried them with butter, brown sugar, and a small amount of white sugar. Cooked until tender. And they were always eaten up. Yum, Yum
Loved it! Great comfort food. My family really liked it too. I need to mention however, if you are looking for french fry type fries - this is not the recipe for you. As others have mentioned, these are carmelized sweet potates not like fries at all.
I will be making this often as a quick and easy way to fix sweet potatoes for my family. We loved this so much we could easily have eaten three times the amount I prepared! TIP: I sliced the potatoes into rounds while waiting for the water to boil; this shortens the cook time. Also, In a pinch, white sugar will do just fine.
My grandma made fried sweet potatoes like these when I was growing up. They are the ultimate comfort food in my book! Tender and flavorful with a rich buttery brown sugar glaze and chunks of carmelized brown sugar sticking to them. YUMMMM!!
