This recipe is based on one by Maya's Mama which I have adapted to our taste. I use Krazy Mixed-up Salt & cinnamon to give these fries extra flavor. Enjoy!
- 2 sweet potatoes (large)
- 1⁄3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon (ground)
- salt (seasoned salt)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Peel sweet potatoes and then slice into French fry style sticks.
- Line a jelly roll pan with a sheet of baker's parchment paper.
- Toss sweet potato fries in a bowl with olive oil to coat sweet potatoes.
- Lie sweet potato fries on to the parchment paper.
- Sprinkle with salt.
- Use 1.5 teaspoons worth of cinnamon and sprinkle sweet potato fries.
- Bake them for 20 minutes, then turn them over.
- Sprinkle salt and remaining cinnamon on the fries.
- Bake them for an additional 30 minutes.
- Serve and enjoy!
Definitely 5 star! Our kind of food. DH and I adore cinnamon and sweet potatoes and this is perfect in every respect. Simple, beautiful, healthy, timing is right on, and delicious. I cut sweet potato into 1/2 inch pieces-like a steak fry and did reduce the oil by half-you need some oil so cinnamon has something to stick to. Thank you Acadia for a winner!
Well 3 of us gobbled up the lot and that I think says it all. Will cut my fries a bit thicker next though as some were definitely overcooked as in a little burnt but overall most had a slight crispness to them which I know is very hard to get in sweet potatoes. Thank you Acadia for a great sweet potato recipe.
We loved these. They were so full of flavor and perfectly cooked. Made on small change which was to cut the olive oil to one and half tablespoons. The cinnamon adds a nice warmth to the sweet potatoes. Will be making again. Thanks so much for the post.
