"I love this recipe. I made it up from a version I had at a restaraunt. Great for kids too! I choose to dip into ranch dressing. I know it may sound strange, but try it, YUM!"

  1. Absolutely delightful! My boys (4 & 1), husband and neighbors all loved them!!! Thanks for the awesome recipe! We cut them thin and they came out perfectly!Really, they were delicious. *UPDATE* - we figured out a way to crisp them up! After seasoning in the bag, dump in a couple tablespoons of cornstarch and shake it up one more time. They'll look funny with all the white powder, but it helps them get crispy! Delicious either way though!
  2. Really liked these. every member of my family ate them, and it is so rare that I find any one thing that all can agree on. I did use the corn starch tip after shaking the fries in oil and I think it helped a lot. I cut the fries rather small - I think six large sweet potatoes would be way too many. I used three and a single layer of potatoes (which is what you need to crisp them) covered one baking sheet and a pizza stone. My experience was that the pizza stone and the baking sheet crisped equally well and that i had to bake the potatoes twice as long to get them crisp. I turned them during cooking several times. I tossed them in a ziplock with olive oil and then added in a couple of tablespoons of corn starch and shook again. Then I sprinkled them with garlic salt (not powder, so I skipped the salt part) and cinnamon. Really nice way to prepare sweet potatoes. Thanks.
  3. AMAZING! I heated the yams up a bit before cutting, as this made it much easier. I did not peel them, as the skins are so amazingly delicious! I recommended leaving the skin on, as they are healthy and make for a great true fry-like texture. Shaking up in a bag worked well, unlike some cooks indicated. I did have to cook them a bit longer than specified to get the right crispness- mmm mmm! :)
  4. Perfect! I used 1 tsp garlic, cinnamon and salt. Broiled for an additional 3 or so minutes to crisp up. Thanks for the keeper!
  5. These were great! We loved them. My DH is still saying how much he liked these 3 days later. I skipped the cinnamon.


  1. I too left off the cinnamon and used garlic salt instead of garlic powder and the salt. The ranch dressing was the perfect condiment. DH loved them! Now he wants them at least once a week. It's so great when he'll eat his veggies.
