I served this dish with bbq tofu sandwishes (recipe on this site with my review) and fresh cole slaw. I used two large sweet potatoes--it is all they had at the market--and after cutting them into fries, I ended up only using 1 1/2 potatoes for my husband and me. There was so much leftover that we had lots to feed our two dogbabies. I seasoned with salt, cracked black pepper, cayenne, and coriander. This made for a sweet and spicy seasoning that didn't overwhelm the potato flavors. I only used a tbsp on oil, as I have heard too much oil can actually just make them soggier and soft. I spray the foil with pam and put the potatoes on a baking pan, like others have suggested, and I made sure to put the fried in a single non-crowded layer. In my gas oven, I baked the fries at 450 for 20 mins, turned them, and baked ten more minutes. I ended with a short broil, 2-3 minutes, to crisp them a bit. This made for perfect fries. They were not super crispy, but they were delicious. I give it a four because of the changes I made, but I hope you will try this simple, nutritious (packed with beta carotene and vitamin A), and delicious recipe.
