Mirjam you are truely Zaar's sweet potato Maven ! The roasting intensifies the sweet potato flavor so that it is the perfect foil for the black and cayenne pepper. The garlic adds another layer of flavor and a bit of crunch. Next time I think I'll add a bit of rosemary and serve it with lamb, then maybe thyme, for a roast beef _ how about some sage with pork and then ------
Very tasty!! Loved the flavour & tenderness. I will be more attentive to making the fries the same size next time - I had a little trouble with some burning before others were cooked thoroughly.
5 star all the way - We loved this recipe. Nice & peppy served with a juicy burger. Thanks Mirj for a lovely addition to our Saturday night dinner 3 July 10 Made again and enjoyed just as much!
Didn't have garlic cloves, so used 1/2 tsp. garlic powder instead. Had to cook them longer than recipe in order to get crispy-ness, but otherwise - YUM!!!! Will make again! :) Thanks!
These are so delicious! We make them at least once a week. When I make them into wedges them seem to burn, so I cut mine into about 1 inch wide and 1/2 inch thick fries. And they usually don't take quite as long to cook this way...maybe half the time. I especially love the chunks of garlic at the end....Amazing...Will be making these FOREVER! :)
What a wonderful combination of flavors and a welcome change from regular fries. These were a perfect complement to our grilled chicken sandwiches.
Thank you so much for posting this wonderful recipe Mirj...My family & I certainly enjoyed this dish. I didn't have enough garlic so I used 1 clove of garlic and half of a large shallot (finely chopped). It worked great. We will certainly be having sweet potatoes prepared this way again.
I wish I would have made a bigger batch. Everyone loved them.
SO good! Loved the kosher salt and paprika. We added half the cayenne and it was better for our taste. Thanks for posting, these were great!
