Rosemary Sweet Potato Fries

A local restaurant got me hooked on sweet potato fries. I started making them at home with different seasonings to match the taste. I'm thrilled with the results! —Jackie Gregston, Hallsville, Texas

    I'm giving it 5 stars, but it was only a 4 star for me. I didn't have them in a single layer so not as crispy as I would have liked, my mistake. The flavor was excellent. I will try again!

    It was only a 4 star for me. I didn't have them in a single layer and used parchment paper so not as crispy as I would have liked, my mistake. I will try again!

    Finally found a recipe that worked! Thank you, these were fantastic.. I too cut the sweet potatoes into rounds and they turned out great... only thing I left out was the rosemary.

    to rocketteacher ..........I use a mandolin V-blade slicer. They have them on Amazon, but I am sure elsewhere also. I have also used a spirilizer......oh my goodness......skinny sweet potato fries, baked......out of this world!

    Love sweet potato fries! I am not a knife expert, so I'll cut mine in rounds. How thick, though, is the question?

    Sweet potatoes are great as fries, but hard to make shoestring type fries. I slice round fries---much easier and of course, they taste the same.

    I am not a fan of Rosemary so I leave it out but still love this recipe. Question for do you cut the sweet potato in such perfect French fry shapes. Is there a slicer on the market that cuts easily through sweet potatoes?

    idk why but stars are not lighting up, even though I clicked them...anyway 5 stars! These were AMAZING! Huge hit with kids and hubby. Had never made fries out of sweet potatoes before, so after I had cut the first potato, I was sure the servings had to be off. There is a lot of fries, but after baking I realized they shrink considerably. This will be a regular in our house. Thanks. BTW I made the recipe as written and like I said amazing! :D
