  • “This is a great alternative for french fries.My kids are asking me for the new kind of “French Fries”.They are tasty enough that you don’t need katup.”

  • “i did this with yams, and it went over very well. good for dipping in ketchup, i’ll definitely be making these again soon.”

  • “What a yummy splurge for me! The kids thought they were great, too. I used seasoned salt instead of salt & pepper. Next time I will cut them smaller so they can crisp up a bit more.”

  • “I forgot to use salt and pepper, and these were still fantastic! The only thing I would do differently is to change the cook time. I cut the fries into smaller slices, and they seemed to be crispy/done after about 10-12 minutes. Great idea! If health/calories are not an issue, they are good with ranch dressing.”

  • “I made these this evening and they were delicious. My husband won’t usually eat sweet potatoes but he loved these. I tossed with olive oil and baked mine for 30 minutes and they still didn’t look as crispy as the photo. I’m at 5000 ft alt. so maybe that had something to do with it, but regardless we will be making them often. Thanks so much!”

  • “Yummy, yummy, yummy!Quick and easy.This is a forever, use over and over recipe.Thanks, Dancer.Lucy B.”

  • “OMG!!These were wonderful, and very easy to do.DH loved them too.I will definitely make them again.Instead of pam, I tossed the potatoes in olive oil, but did everything else just like it was written.”

  • “this was so quick & easy, and we loved it!”

  • “They tasted great — nice change from regular potatoes and the colour looked great on my plate.i wish they were just a bit crisper; i’ll try some EV olive oil next time.i’m going to try a bit of rosemary too — something to counteract the sweetness of the potato flesh.”

  • “I loved them! I like the fact that they are fat like steak fries yet not fried. I will not eat sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving with all the marshmellows, but this I can do. My bf wasn’t crazy about them, but he ate ’em. I used EV-olive oil, seasoned salt, and paprika. I even ate the left-overs the next day. I’ll pick this healthy option over Mickey D’s any day.”

  • “These were very good.I spiced them with garlic salt and paprika and they were very tasty.Nice change from regular fries.”

  • “Thanks so much!This was wonderfully easy, particularly because Trader Joe’s now sells bagged sweet potato spears — this didn’t even require cutting.I used olive oil spray instead of Pam, and it was terrific.This got me away from the problem of cooking sweet potatoes with butter and brown sugar, making ’em more of a dessert than a vegetable … now the sweet potatoes can speak for themselves.Thanks!”

  • “Great Idea, better for you and I think better flavor than regular french fries! I Loved this one! Whats bad is I can eat a pan full by myself, they are addictive!Thanks Dancer!”

  • “delicious!!!baked them on parchment paper, no oil or cooking spray… came out just great!will definitely buy more sweet potatoes & make these babies again… soon!”
