These were pretty good, but next time, I'll cut the potatoes thicker (personal preference) and probably add a little more fresh rosemary.

Bakes up crispier baking at 275 for 20 minutes and then at 425 for the remainder(maybe another 20 min). To get it actually really crispy outside fry though for about 4-5 minutes. Good with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar too.

Very good recipe. Baked in a glass baking tray and came out very good. Not greasy and very tasty. Will make this a keeper.

These were delicious but I changed the recipe a little. Although Olive Oil is good for you, it's best in very small amounts. I have a pumper spray filled with EVOO (not a pressurized can because it leaves a residue on your pans) I toss the cut fries with the spray and seasionings at the same time and use a convection oven at 425 which made them very crisp and delicious. Heart Healthy!

awesome flavor, however, they were a little mushy. I have attempted to make sweet potato fries several times, and have never got them to turn out right. They are either mushy or burnt. I will say that I did bake these in a 13x9 glass baking dish instead of a cookie sheet and got a better result than in the past. I followed the instructions to a T and had to bake them for about 45 minutes. Near the end of baking time, I increased the temp to 475 for a few minutes to crisp them up. I will use this recipe again until I get it right!

My wife and I thought these were great. I did not have fresh rosemary so I used dried and chopped them up a bit in the coffee grinder. Also I used a yam because that was sitting on the counter and judging by the color I think that is what you get in resturants and store bought sweet potato fries anyways. Again very good, will make again!

Delicious! Mine did not get crispy either, and I left them in longer than called for, turning them 1/2 way through. It didn't matter, we still loved them. I also added some onion and garlic powders to them, and that was a great addition. These are a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
