I was looking for a recipe for fried sweet potatoes, but didn't find one, so I decided to try something of my own. You can change recipe to serve more people by adding more sweet potatoes.

Directions

  1. Place 3/4 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract into a gallon size resealable plastic bag. Seal the bag and shake to blend the sugar mixture. Add the sweet potato sticks, seal the bag, and turn to evenly coat the potatoes with the sugar mixture.
  2. Pour the canola oil into a deep fryer and heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Add the sweet potatoes, and cook until golden, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels, then place on a serving plate.
  3. Place the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, and butter into a pan. Warm over medium heat until butter is melted; drizzle over the sweet potatoes.

I followed the recipe roughly but didn't want to deep fry, so I just put 1/4 c. melted butter with about 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. nutmeg, and 1 TBSP sugar along with the potatoes in a bowl to coat them. Baked in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20-25 min. turning frequently. Very tasty and not as sugary as this recipe calls for.
