Why would you add sugar to a sweet potatoe recipe? Unnecessary. Submitted by:

I have been making this recipe for awhile except that I roll them in olive oil and use salt and basil and oregano. I bake them about 35min. @ 400. I cut them like fries. They are very good. Just made them last night. We don't care for sweet potatoes any other way. Submitted by:

I toss mine with olive oil, sea salt, and fresh ground black pepper and bake @ 400 for 20-30 minutes. I make a dipping sauce with ranch dressing and horseradish sauce (you could use wasabi if you like) and it is spectacular with these fries! Submitted by:

I made these tonight, yum! I omitted the salt, used garlic and onion powder, a bit of black pepper, and a bit of red pepper. Tossed them with sprays of the "I can't believe it's not butter" spray. Even my four year old gobbled them up. Will definitely make again! Submitted by:

My 13y/o son loved them! The husband ate quite a few too! I didn't have ground red pepper, only crushed. I tried to grind it. Didn't do very well. But still used it. I did a splash of extra sugar before going into the oven :) Submitted by:

Great recipe. Will definitely be doing this again. Didn't use any sugar as it is sweet enough. Submitted by:

sorry but adding sugar is not healthy, nor is cooking spray particularly healthy Submitted by:

Sweet potatoes don't need sugar, just some herbs and minced garlic. Also half the salt (or none). Paprika works well if, like me, you don't do pepper. But yes to mixing everything in a bowl before spreading on the baking tray.
Cut bigger wedges and cook 30-40 minutes - absorbs less oil.

Baking the sweet potatoes sure cuts way down on the calories and will be much healthier. Look forward to making this recipe. Submitted by:

I never bother to peel - more fiber that way. I just slice it into rounds, toss with olive oil and chili powder and cumin (or taco seasoning). Submitted by:

I absolutely LOVED these! I think next time I may add half the sugar because I don't need them quite as sweet, but they were very delish! I served mine with my homemade turkey cheeseburger and steamed asparagus. All were a hit.

Will definitely make this again and again. =)

These were great! I made them in my toaster/broiler/oven and used Truvia rather than sugar. I loved them and will make them again. Submitted by:

Love sweet potatoes! Love sweet potato fries! But you don't need to add sugar OR salt--but try a variety of spice/herb combinations. We like garlic, cumin and paprika! You can also fix these on a grill, using a basket-type holder, etc. Great side dish for anything you fix on the grill! Healthy, too Submitted by:

I'm kind of HORRIFIED that SparkPeople would add sugar to a recipe where the sweet potato is already NATURALLY SWEET. I always toss sliced sweet potato with olive oil, but will add some of these spices next time before baking, NO SUGAR NECESSARY. Let's keep it as healthy as possible, right! Submitted by:
