I am giving this 4 stars because I skipped the pre cooking step and didn't use the lemon pepper. I love sweet potato fries and I make them all the time because of this recipe. The secret is to make sure they are all cut fairly evenly and they are spaced out on the pan. If they are crowded too close together they will not cook properly. Also always make sure to turn them at least once or they will get burned on one side. Regular potatoes you don't have to be so careful but sweet potatoes you do for some reason.

Suggested recipe made the potatoes too mushy. I remade omiting the pre-cooking and they turned out better.

If you want them crispier, just skip the pre-cooking step and bake them longer (or cut them more thinly and keep the same cook time.)

my very first attempt at ANY kind of homemade french fry, and they came out perfect. I used sea salt, fresh ground pepper, and a dash of each: garlic powder, dehydrated onion, parsley flakes. Cut them into thin 2 1/2" fries & they crisped up perfectly. Awesome just with ketchup.. a new favorite food for sure!!!!

To get the fries a bit more crispy they need to be cut rather thinly. This also helps them cook faster. To season I always add salt, pepper, and paprika, which gives it a nice contrast between the sweet and spicy. Sometime I add fresh rosemary or a tiny bit of chili powder to kick it up a bit more.

I'll give 5 stars to anything my 19 month old will eat! He loved them. So did my husband and I. I didn't do the microwave part. I cut them thinner cooked 30 mins at 400 and to crisp up a bit, I put them under the broiler for a few minutes on each side. They were delish!

These were great. I only cooked in microwave for 3 min. Tossed with garlic olive oil, lemon seasoning and italian spices. Baked for 45 min. Crispiness depends on how thick you cut. The smaller cut, the crispier. I cut mine like steak fries and they turned out nice an tasty! My 2 year old loves these!!

Super good alternative to regular oven fries. I cut mine to about the size of two regular fries. Took about 45 minutes to really get them perfectly crispy, but they were too mushy on the inside. I'll only microwave them for 3 minutes next time and bake them for a full 45 min. Thanks for the great recipe!
