I don't miss regular potatoes when I get to eat these fries! I love them! For a crispier version, toss the sweet potato sticks in a beaten egg white instead of olive oil, then season and bake. YUM!

Great taste but you have to babysit them in the oven. Looking back, I definitely think that 450 is way to high. I'll try them again with a lower degrees.

These were good but I added rosemary, thyme, garlic and season salt. I think that the temperature is way too high at 450, I roasted mine at 350 and then increased it to 400 the last 10 min and they were great. I also flipped them and added more olive oil half way thru.

I am not on the South Beach Diet, and tend to fry everything rather than baking, because my husband and I love crunchy food, so I was hesitant about trying this recipe. However, when they came out of the oven, smelling great, I was quite impressed! The potatoes came out great, and did not lack any of the crunch that I love in my fries. My husband thought they were out of this world and could not tell that they had not been fried. This makes me want to consider baking more often.

i put mine in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes, flipped them and put them back in for another 10-15 min. they crisped up perfectly. i also subbed cinnamon for salt because i wanted a different flavor from regular fries, will definitely make this again!!

Mine also came out burnt and mushy... The tips were burnt but the center didn't have time to crisp up at all yet. Next time I'll try reducing the heat and baking for MUCH longer, or even use egg whites as suggested. A lot of fries also stuck to the pan, so make sure to turn them very frequently. The taste was really good though, so I'll definitely try again.

I followed the recipe, but mine never crisped... just got mushy in the center and burnt on the edges.
