This is a great alternative to traditional sweet potato recipes and it's really fast and easy to make. Be sure to cut the sweet potatoes into long steak fries. This gets them cooked quickly. If you are frying a turkey add these to the heated oil once the turkey is out of the way and you will get more flavor into these fries.

Easy and Delicious, Member catbehindthecouch

I debated over a couple of recipes to use, but picked this one because it was the easiest. The sweet potato fries came out perfect! I dipped them in a sauce made with mayo and sriracha. Delicious!
