These fries are a healthy alternative to the old standard French fries. The Italian seasoning and lemon pepper add an interesting twist to this vegetable.

I am giving this 4 stars because I skipped the pre cooking step and didn't use the lemon pepper. I love sweet potato fries and I make them all the time because of this recipe. The secret is to make sure they are all cut fairly evenly and they are spaced out on the pan. If they are crowded too close together they will not cook properly. Also always make sure to turn them at least once or they will get burned on one side. Regular potatoes you don't have to be so careful but sweet potatoes you do for some reason.

If you want them crispier, just skip the pre-cooking step and bake them longer (or cut them more thinly and keep the same cook time.)

my very first attempt at ANY kind of homemade french fry, and they came out perfect. I used sea salt, fresh ground pepper, and a dash of each: garlic powder, dehydrated onion, parsley flakes. Cut them into thin 2 1/2" fries & they crisped up perfectly. Awesome just with ketchup.. a new favorite food for sure!!!!
