Sweet Potato Fries

I love these fries. My husband loves these fries. My daughter does not. They are too spicy for her. Not only do these fries taste good, they are simple to prepare. The longest part is peeling and cutting the sweet potatoes into shoestring, uniform pieces. One of those fancy potato cutters would take care of that problem in no time. The recipe is adapted from from Janet and Greta Podleski's Crazy Plates book, so they are healthy too.


4 medium sweet potatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Line baking pan with tin foil. Brush with olive oil or non-stick spray.
  2. Slice potatoes into shoestring French fry shapes. Toss with olive oil in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, mix remaining ingredients together. Add the spice mixture to the potatoes and stir until the potatoes are evenly covered.
  4. Arrange the fries in a single layer on pan. Bake for 25 minutes. Flip the fries halfway through cooking.
