I have a confession to make…I am not a huge fan of sweet potatoes, unless they have savory spices on them. I love to make sweet potato fries and put cumin, cayenne, and garlic on them, but for this recipe, I tried something different. I used Cajun seasoning, salt, and cinnamon. They turned out great! They’re spicy with a hint of cinnamon.
SPICY CINNAMON SWEET POTATO FRIES
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into matchsticks
Cajun seasoning, to taste
Salt, to taste
Cinnamon, to taste
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Put the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil (you want them to be lightly coated) and sprinkle with seasonings. Toss them around with your hands to coat them well. Bake at 400 degrees until crisp on edges and tender in the middle, about 30-40 minutes.
