    The recipe is actually good but I eliminated the splenda and the cinnamon. Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet and that's enough for me - 7/25/09

    I have been making baked sweet potato fries for years, but I add crushed fresh garlic and/or garlic salt, chili powder, cumin, pepper in a ziploc bag with the olive oil, shake up to thoroughly coat the pieces, and then bake. I also have used "Caribbean Jerk" seasoning instead of the other spices. - 6/16/08

    When I put this in the recipe calculator, I got fewer calories (about 94) and less sodium (about 2000) - not sure why. That's still a lot of sodium I can't have, so I'm going to try it with little or no salt. - 6/19/08

    I make my sweet potato fries by just spraying them with EVoo spray and sprinkling them with garlic powder and whatever spices and/or hebs I'm in the mood for that day. I'd never add so much salt tho - wouldn't be good for my husband especially and any of us in general. - 6/13/08

    I love doing sweet potatoes this way but slicing the sweet potato and tossing with a little olive oil only. Works well with a regular potato too for oven french fries. - 7/25/09

    My way of making Sweet Potatoe 'Fries" is to do more of a 'home-fries'cut (chunky). Then tos with 1/4c EVOO and 1/8c/ Light Soy or Teriyaki and 1/8 t. Cayene; Bake at 425 for 20 -30 mins. I've also made these then cooled them and tossed with 1/4c. Balsamic vinegar for a salad in the summer!! - 6/15/08

    I made this without the sugar or cinn. and used a ziplock bag with a small amt of EVOO and shook the cut up potatoes before placing in oven. Make them all the time. They don't need seasoning I don't think!
