I live in Cocoa Beach, Fl. I love sweet potato fries, a local restaurant here serves the fries with a horseradish sauce. I have also sliced sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch or so thick slices, brush with olive oil, add your favorite seasonings & grill. Last night I mixed honey with a tangerine infused balsamic vinegar & glazed them.

I've baked them and deep fried them. Both ways, I use a cinnamon sugar mix (like what you roll snickerdoodles in) on them after cooking. I tried just salt once like french fries but we decided they needed something else. Since I usually use brown sugar and butter on baked sweet potatoes I tried the cinnamon sugar and we like them like that. DH still prefers regular ff though.

I do not like sweet potato, umless it is raw. So I don't eat them fries, besides if I'm gong to eat fries might as well be the real thing. They are not any healthier than plain potato fries. and you can cook them the sam way the regular potato is cooked.

I'm not fond of sweet potato in any form.

I never really liked sweet potatoes until one evening we went to dinner at a Longhorn Steakhouse with friends. I ordered a baked sweet potato with cinnamon butter because I hadn't tried sweet potato in decades. It was delicious and I haven't looked back since. We now eat them regularly.

I grew up hating sweet potatoes, or so I thought. Them a friend baked one and smothered it in butter with salt and pepper, very simple. I have been hooked ever since. The sweet potatoes with the cinnamon butter are also dynamite. But without the butter, well, let's just say that I loves me some butter.

I love baked sweet potatoes with just butter...maybe a dash of cinnamon. I'm not sure why so many people dislike them...maybe it's because they associate them with all those sticky-sweet casseroles with marshmallows, nuts and such.
I've tried sweet potato fries, but prefer them baked.

You know, I'll bet you are right about the whole sweet potatoe/marshmallow thing. But I know when I was growing up they were never served except for Thanksgiving and not always then. I think more people will get to like them now that we are serving them as a matter of course. I know many people are serving them in place of white potatoes because of the extra fiber in them.

I have to say, very few things taste bad when smothered in butter. Brussel sprouts can't be helped though.
