Recipe Details


1 1⁄2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 pound(s) uncooked sweet potato(es) (two 1-lb potatoes)
2 spray(s) cooking spray
1⁄2 tsp table salt


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Peel potatoes and cut them lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices; cut each slice into 1/2-inch-thick sticks (you should have 48 fries). Spread fries on prepared pan so they don’t overlap or touch; coat with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.
  3. Bake fries for 20 minutes; remove from oven, coat with cooking spray and sprinkle half of sugar mixture over top. Flip fries, coat with cooking spray and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture; bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, toss well and bake until brown and tender, about 5 minutes more. Transfer pan to a wire rack and cool for a few minutes. Yields 8 fries per serving.
