We really enjoy these at our house, If you like sweet potatoes , this is a new way to fix them, they are like spicey steak fries oven baked, the orignial recipe makes 2 pans 13x9, unless familys over for dinner I make them for just Hubby and me as a side ,I fix 2 potatoes, just cut back on salt and pepper. This is also a good finger food .
