You can't really call these fries. I baked them until well browned on two sides but they were not crispy. (the exceptions were the very slimmest pieces, more like shoestring potatoes than fries.) They tasted OK but were floppy, like soggy fries. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried this recipe last night, and they came out great! Although had I stirred them occasionally like the recipe stated, perhaps some of mine wouldn't have burned. Some came out crispy and some on the soft side, but it was a good combination. Will definitely make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Hi, I like the recipe, especially with the salt/pepper/garlic mix. Although, I followed your recipe but my fries did not came out crispy like fries should be. What has gone wrong? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I like mine dipped in buffalo sauce. Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were fantastic! Mine were a teensy bit on the floppy side as well, but as it happens that's my favorite kind of fry (I'm weird, I know). I was liberal with the seasonings, and also added a bit of cayenne. While browsing through some different sweet potato recipes, I saw that people really liked pairing Ina Garten's sweet potato fries with lime cayenne mayonnaise. Tried it out with these--amazing! I also made spicy salmon croquettes that night, and the lime cayenne mayo went well with both. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was really really good. My fries came out pretty crispy - just as crispy as when I have them fried in restaurants. The key to this seemed to be two things 1) I added the seasoning early (1 hour before putting them in the oven) and let the extra liquid drain onto a paper towel 2) I cooked them on convection roast. The convection setting seemed to really brown them nicely. My husband won't touch sweet potatoes normally, but he gobbled these right up. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these tonight and although I made a much smaller amount (so I guessed on the amount of seasoning) I thought they were delicious. I didn't use parchment paper, just put them right on the baking sheet and turned them once halfway through the cooking time, and they definitely came out crispy on the edges. They are baked so they obviously aren't going to be as crispy as they would be if they were deep fried, but they had just the right balance of savory and sweet and were crispy enough to make them really great. (And a lot healthier than anything deep fried!) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oh boy were these delicious! I agree that these are a good balance of savory and sweet. The amount of seasoning you use can be tailored to your taste. The only downfall you will have with any sweet potato fry (baked, fried or otherwise) is that they never get crispy like fried russet potatoes. This is mostly do to the natural water content of the potato. Otherwise than that, they are delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The best potato fries I have had to date. They had just the right amount of savory and sweet (without the sweet being too much). item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thanks for the tip! How do I make the lime cayenne mayonnaise please? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sorry for the delayed reply! Lime Cayenne Mayo: 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 tsp lime zest, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or more, to taste), 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice. Mix it together, and voila! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Right on yummy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ashleigh- thank your your excellent suggestion to incorporate the Lime Cayenne Mayo. For those that want less "floppy". Consider using your mandolin and making chips- move to 1/4 from the standard 1/8. The flavor profile is excellent and we only really enjoy sweet potatoes in recipes that are not SWEET, lol. item not reviewed by moderator and published
