    Sweet potato fries are the best!
    To save energy (and kitchen heat w/500 degree oven) just parboil your sweet potato for a few minutes in water. Let it cool, peel and cut into bite sized pieces. Mix with seasonings and cook in 350 oven for 10 minutes or until they are fork tender.

    I make these numerous times a week, have been for LONG time! To make cooking time shorter and cutting easier, I nuke my sweet potatoes in the microwave for about 30 seconds or less (any more and they mush like baked potatoes) I also preheat the pan in the oven so they dont stick to the pan. ;) - 10/16/09

    I've made these for a while now, not only for all the good stuff sweet potatoes contain, but because my husband loves them too! I bake in my toaster oven @ 425' for 30 min, flipping after 15 min. I HATE "sweet" potatoes, so I use only olive oil and salt, with organic catsup to dip. - 9/19/09

    Sweet potatoes are grown in abundance where I live so I cook with them often. If you don't like them spicy, try chopping some fresh rosemary on top and then during the last few minutes of baking, sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top. Also, there is no need to peel them. - 12/10/09

    I never add sugar since they have natural sweetness. I like these with TONS of cumin (maybe 2 tsp for ONE s.p.) even better than paprika (probably use 1 tsp -- I don't measure, I go by eye). - 9/19/09
