- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 8 cups vegetable oil
- 5 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut crosswise into 1/8-inch thick slices
Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and mix well. Set aside.
Heat the vegetable oil in a very large, deep pot or heat an electric fryer to 360 degrees F. Fry the sweet potatoes, in batches, until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar and serve hot.
