Pumpkin Pie Spiced Sweet Potatoes Fries

I think sweet potato fries are one of those great compromise foods. My kids get to eat “fries” and I get to watch my children enjoy a vitamin rich vegetable! My kids love sweet potato fries. They will eat them just about any way that I cook them: plain, garlicky, spicy or coated with pumpkin pie spice.

    I've been meaning to make sweet potato fries for ages but I've definitely got to now! They sound wonderful with the pumpkin pie spice!

    Great idea! I make sweet potato fries, but I haven't tried using sweet seasonings. I've avoided them because my DH doesn't care for sweet/savory combinations; however, I just realized that he doesn't like sweet potato fries anyway! So I'll have to try this.

    This is exactly how I got my husband to eat sweet potatoes too! Although I haven't tried it with pumpkin pie spice, usually just salt, pepper, and a little rosemary or thyme. Yum- I can eat sweet potatoes plain right out of the oven. Love.

    We make our own fries. My parents always made homemade fries as well. They never bought the pre-made frozen ones from the store, so I did the same thing when I moved out. My husband is actually the fry maker in our house. Somehow his always turn out better than mine.

    I think pumpkin pie spice on sweet potato fries sounds delicious. I really want to try this recipe. I think this would be a great after Thanksgiving side to go with the turkey-cranberry sandwich!

    I like sweet potato fries with chili aoili. Not ketchup though. And I love sweet potato (yam) tempura. That is so my favourite! Thanks for sharing these on Vegetarian Foodie Fridays!
