I like to fix these as an alternative to French Fries. They are lower in fat and much better for you!! My son just "gobbles" them up!!

Tasty and simple, but not as crisp as I would have liked. Next time I'll cook them at 425 or 450. I always have better luck roasting vegetables at a bit higher temp.

Didn't turn out crisp for me either, but oh were they good! I mixed them with regular potatoes, since dh has sweet-potato-phobia. But I thought the sweet potatoes tasted waaaay better than the regular ones. I used a crinkle-cutter, which I think kept some from burning on the entire side (just a little on the crinkles). This is an easy keeper, and when using regular potatoes, much healthier than fries. Thanks!
