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!

My husband liked these, which is unusual because he doesn't like sweet potatoes. That said, I was very disappointed. They were soggy and limp and NEVER crisped up at all. We couldn't get enough liquid to drink with these - they were VERY salty, spicy, peppery. Even my vegan daughter didn't care for them. If I did something wrong in the preparation - let me know - HOW do you get crispy oven sweet potatoes??

I'm not sure what happened but mine never got crispy or crunchy. There are other ways I like sweet potatoes better but I'm glad I tried it!

MIRJ, A HAIKU FOR YOU Mirj, my dearest Mirj - you never disappoint me - unfried fries, perfect. Seriously though, these are great. I cut mine into 'homestyle' fries (cutting the whole potato lengthwise into oblong discs) and kept them pretty thin (1/6-1/4 inch). The thinnest ones actually got crispy - Terra Chips crispy - and the thicker ones had a nice texture. Took 35 minutes total - probably could have left the others an extra 5 minutes. Thanks Mirj - great use for my Vardaman sweet potatoes!

This was good for a different way to prepare sweet potatoes, but we really didn't care for them too much. They really didn't come out crunchy or crisp like we expected. Thank you.

I used all the spices but did not measure, as I know how spicy my husband and I like our food. I tweaked by using garlic powder, not minced garlic. I baked in a 9x13 baking pan for 45 minutes. The potatoes were soft, never crunchy, even after the extra 5 minutes. However, they were very tasty. I would definitely make these again.

This was absolutely GREAT, Mirj!! My husband says I should make these from now on instead of regular fries! And he's already planning on me planting a whole additional garden section of sweet potatoes this spring so we'll have plenty on hand next winter!! Followed the recipe exactly (except salt). Will leave in water longer next time as I almost burnt them trying to crisp them up under broiler (oops) Thanks a ton for a great recipe!!
