I love to cut my oven fries really thin so they get nice and crispy! I enjoyed the flavors of paprika and cumin. Thanks!

Love the recipe! I just needed to slice them much larger than I thought & leave them in the oven longer to crisp.

This recipe turned out great! I cook with a convection oven and put the timer on 35 minutes. Next time I will leave the fries in a bit longer as they did not turn out as crisp as I would have liked to have seen them.

We really like this spice combination! Ours didn't crisp up too much either, but DH likes them better that way. Thanks for a great easy recipe, nice change from a potato or rice side.

These are yummy! I served them with one of Bergy's burgers. They didn't crisp up as much as I would have liked them to, but that didn't stop DD from chowing down on them! Thanks! :)

I cut the recipe back to 2 servings, sliced the sweet potato a bit thinner than regular fries so I baked them at 400 for 25 minutes. They came out nice and crisp. We enjoyed the spice combination - This recipe will have a repeat performance Thanks MrsEl for posting it

These are outstanding!!! Since I started trying to cook healthier meals for my self and my family I have been looking for alternatives to regular potatoes. As I read sweet potatoes are less starchy and have more fiber. Most of the recipes I have found involve lots of brown sugar, butter and marshmallows. Which I think cancels out the nutritional benefits you’d get from the potato. Also I’m not really crazy about sweets and wondered does a savory recipe for the sweet potato really exist? And lo and behold I stumbled onto your wonderful recipe. I have made this MANY , MANY times and they always turn out delicious! I have substituted chili powder whenever I run out of cumin with equal results. Thanks for a savory alternative to sweet potatoes!

i tried this on my family, as an add-on to our dinner. they seemed soggy so maybe I didn't get them crisp enough. I will try again; maybe i didn't slice them thin enough.

I've often served sweet potatoes as 'fries', but this combination of spices really hit the spot! For some reason, paprika had never occured to me -- I usually use cayenne. Big thumbs up for finding a great way to do an old favorite!
