When Good Yams Go Bad…

Keeping it real today.
I will never attempt Yam Fries again.  Ever. (Unless you have a good recipe for me!!  E-mail away!)
I have tried this recipe probably 5 times now.  And I can never get them right.
Burnt.  And floppy.  All at the same time.

    Bummer!!! I have no words of wisdom on the matter. Do they have Trader joe’s in Canada?? they have REALLY good frozen ones there.

    How do you make them? We love sweet potato fries! I cut them into strips, coat with a small amount of olive oil, season liberally with salt and pepper. Bake on 400 about 20 mins, mixing them around after 10 minutes. Just thought I would share in case you want to try again!

    Good tips! I think I will try them again with a lower temp oven, and putting them on tin foil instead of directly on the pan! Thank you!

    I use parchment paper—never sticks!

    Oh no!!! I’ve never even tried making them so I give you kudos for trying! Maybe they still taste good even if they are floppy and burnt?

    My problem was I over crowded the baking sheet. I have given up and I buy them from the store now. hehe.

    Make them bigger, more like wedges. I also use spray oil for mine, lots of salt. Oh and I leave the skins on and everything x

    Mine are always kind of soggy too, but my husband doesn’t complain!
