I really liked the seasoning on this - the savory spicy complimented the sweet perfectly. However, I found them texture to be a bit mushy. I had to cook for longer at a higher heat to get them even a bit browned.
I adore sweet potatoes and this is my final review for ZWT#8~Mexico/Tex-Mex. My work here is now done.
These are wonderful! They were so good. My family gobbled them up in no time. I will make again. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT8 for the Mexico/Tex-Mex region.
Very tasty! We love sweet potatoes without sugar and nuts and marshmallows so had to try- a winner! Put the seasonings and oil into ziplock, dumped the "fries" in, rubbed paste on. Seasonings are perfect- the cumin ... Love it. Enjoyed with ham loaf that had been made earlier then nuked to warm up. Thanks for posting.
Oh wow...these are just fantastic!!
I cut mine thin, and they crisped up wonderfully around the edges while still being soft in the middle. Add the warmth from the spices and you have yourself one scrummy sweet potato dish, that is devilishly hard to resist.
A gem of a recipe, thanks lauralie.
Made for AUS/NZ RECIPE SWAP#64.
These were very tasty. I also cut up some white potatoes and added those to the sweet potatoes. Everyone in our family enjoyed them! Some of the sweet potatoes were slice thinly and crispy and others were in wedges and softer. I think we like the crispy ones the best but both were delicious. Thanks for sharing!
Delicious and addictive...hint: to achieve a crispier more "fry"-like fry, put some flour in a plastic bag and toss to lightly coat after rubbing the fries with olive oil and spices. This keeps them from being too limp when done...to me, the resulting crunch really moved this up a notch.
Simply Love it! I made it dozen of times and each time I got complements from my friends and family. I like to slice potatoes into thin round chips this way they get cooked faster and more crisp, but it is very tasty and much softer when I cut them in long wages. Thank you, this is one of my most favorite recipes.
I liked the spices, but I had to add a bit more to get the flavor to come through. Flavor is wonderful, but for some reason mine turned out too soggy.
I used frozen sweet potato fries, and added the seasoning. DH and DD loved them, and I thought they were a nice change from plain fries with salt.
