Very easy tasty recipe. I mixed the spices with the taters early in the day - left them in a plastic bag in the fridge. I only used a "No Oil" spray and they were perfect Will make these again & again. I cut the recipe to 1 medium sweet potato baked at 375 for 30 minutes flipping them once half way through the baking.

These are very good fries with little effort or ingredients. The fries were very sweet but I attribute that to the ingredients letting the sweetness of the potatoes do all the work. I followed the directions but did do for 15 min per side, and then to broil for about 3-4 minutes at the end because I like my fries crispy. I burned the tips of some, but most were otherwise perfect. Will definitely make these again!

Interesting spice mix, though I think I prefer just seasoned salt. I did mine at 375 degrees, like others but after 30 minutes, mine were a bit limp. I think a slightly higher temperature (as stated in the recipe) would be better. Tasted good, though!

These were so great! Even my kids loved them! We didn't use oil, we used 4 T water, instead, and they turned out great. Might just be my oven, but mine had to cook at 400 for 45 minutes before they were cooked through. Worth the wait!

Delicious! I made these as a side to "Hamburgers" Hamburgers and we had a great meal! I took Bergy's suggestion and baked them at 375 for 30 minutes total; flipping them over half way thru baking time. I made a mustard dipping sauce for them. Thanks for posting a healthy alternative to french fries:)

Love this recipe. I cut them in thick potato chip slices instead. This is now the default way to make yams in our house!
