These are awesome! Tried it for a snack today, just used 1 sweet potato,but instead of using salt, I drained them on a paper towel, and dipped them on both sides in a small bowl of cinnamon sugar. I'm making a pork loin roast in my crock pot for dinner tonight and will definitely be making these for a side to go with it.

I am retired from being a paralegal and a real estate agent. I have also been a substitute teacher for the elementary grades in the public school system.

Since life is so short I try to count my blessings each day and give to the less fortunate. I had gotten into a rut on what to cook. Therefore, I am so happy I found the Recipezaar site.
