"A tangy way to enjoy sweet potatoes outside of Thanksgiving dinner. Sweet potato fries do not crisp as well as regular potato fries do, so if you do not like softer fries, this is not the recipe for you!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into long French fries
ground black pepper
I made these for some guests who can't have white potatoes and they LOVED them. I was making a double batch, and I didn't want to take the time to fry them, so I put all of the ingredients into a Ziploc bag and tossed to coat. I then baked them in the oven for about 40 minutes or so until the sides were a little crispy. Everyone wanted the recipe!
Yum! These are a great, healthy way to sneak vegetables into your kids. My three-year-old had no problem polishing off his helping! The spices add to the sweet flavor with a bit of kick. The only thing I would recommend is baking the fries at 425 for 40 minutes on a cookie sheet instead of pan frying them. I tried pan frying a handful of them and then baked the rest in the oven, but the pan fried ones didn't turn out nearly as good as the baked ones. It is true that sweet potato fries don't get as crispy as regular potatoes, so don't expect these to be crunchy; just expect them to be delicious!
These were awesome! The seasoning was perfect, and we cooked the fries in batches. The whole family really liked these. It was a nice change of pace from russet potatoes!
I love sweet potatoes and have been looking for a great fry recipe. I found this one but did not want to pan fry. I made the recipe using all of the spices as they are in the recipe only I used just 2 very big Yams (yams are sweeter than sweet potatoes). I baked them at 450 for 40 minutes. Halfway thru the time I pulled them out and flipped them. I put maybe 2T of olive oil on the baking sheet to keep them from sticking. They turned out great!!
Awesome recipe. Took out the paprika. 2 large sweet potatoes made enough for my family of 4! We will be making these a weekly side at my house.
Delicious. Would have been better if I hadn't burned half of them! LOL :)
I genuinely dislike sweet potatoes so I was just making these for my boys and I must say that they were awesome! Everyone ate them up!!!! Will make again :)
These were great! Everyone liked them except for my wife. She normally hates sweet potatoes but she tried one and thought it was ok. The only reason I give it 4 stars is the time needed to cook. I made several batches and it took a while to pan fry them. I might try baking them next time. Thanks!
