Sweet Potato Fries [Tasty Thursday]

Sweet potatoes are nutritious and delicious. I've only recently discovered them, but I'm presently addicted.

2 sweet potatoes
1 cup butter/margerine
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon sugar

1. Wash and place potatoes in large pot of boiling water for about 15 minutes, or until soft.

2. Preheat oven to 400.

3. Chop potatoes into thin slices and quarters.

4. Mix the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon sugar.

5. Mix the butter mixture and potatoes in a large bowl until potatoes are coated.

6. Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet in a single layer.

7. Cook until the edges begin to crisp or blacken (about 30-45 minutes).

8. Enjoy!


  1. I just wanted to add that anti-margarine vegans (as I was in my vegan days) can try oils with a high smoking point as an alternative to the margarine in this recipe. There's a handy chart here; something like grapeseed or almond oil, for example, would be a good margarine substitute in this case.

  2. Thanks for the link! I've used olive oil with good results as well.

  3. Oh, sweet potato chips are delicious! Yum yum.

  4. Sounds delicious.

    I actually like the flavor and texture of yams better. I find sweet potatoes to be of a stringier texture, and not as sweet, ironically, as yams. But, I'll give your recipe a try, nevertheless. Thank you for sharing. :)

  5. Miss I - Thanks for stopping by! Are yams different than sweet potatoes? If so, I think I'm making sweet yam fries tonight...
