    Since we are trying to eat healthy here, mine is a little different! I scrub the potatoes and julienne them. I toss them with about 1 or 2 tablespoons of oil (either olive oil, canola oil, or a flavored oil). Sprinkle with seasoned salt or whatever we are in the mood for and bake at 425 for 30-45 minutes until crispy. Sweet potato fries are done the same way, and really good and good for you!

    I have never soaked mine in ice water, does it make them fry better, Robin. My family loves french fries, DH would eat them each meal if I let him, LOL.

    They come out so much better if you soak them in ice water for a while first...try it!

    Sweet Potato fries are excellent! Even if you don't like sweet potatoes normally!
