~ This is a regular rotation dish at our house. We like the rosemary/red pepper combo, but the chili powder/cinnamon version has been most popular the last several months. Really, you can use whatever spices you’re in the mood for, in whatever amounts you want. You can’t go wrong. They’re even good plain – just sweet potatoes & oil. (Actually, the only thing that can kill these fries is too much salt. Go very light with it if adding before you put in the oven, otherwise just use at the table if needed).
