Look for long, thin sweet potatoes; they make better oven fries than shorter, more squat ones.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Cut potatoes lengthwise into 1/2-inch wedges. Combine potatoes, oil, and sugar; toss to coat. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with almonds, salt, and pepper. Bake at 400° for 35 minutes or until tender and browned.

These were spectacular! Making them for the second time.

Easy side dish for Thanksgiving.

Cutting the potatoes was the hardest part of this recipe.  They turned out very good but nothing spectacular.  I will be doing them again.  I did not have almonds so used pecans.  I also used Splenda  Brown Sugar Blend rather than pure brown sugar.
