Sweet Potato Shoestring Fries are thin spirals of crispy baked taters! The slightly sweet cinnamon sugar coating with just a sprinkling of salt, give that salty-sweet satisfaction in your mouth.
This week, the Sunday Supper Tastemakers are sharing with you dishes made with Root Vegetables hosted by Cindy of Cindy's Recipes and Writings. I'm excited to see all the great ideas and recipes this week!

I finally got myself a spiralizer! I can't believe I waited this long because I am enamored with it! I absolutely love how you can make shoestring fries just by using this little ole machine 🙂 This is probably the easiest recipe I have made for fries and I'm totally impressed that they came out with some crunch!
When thinking about this post and our topic, I could not help but think of my Great Aunt Helga. That lady loved her turnips! While I like turnips just fine, I love sweet potatoes more but I do wonder how turnips would turn out in a similar recipe (without the cinnamon and sugar of course).
After a couple of attempts at making these, I finally managed to get it right without burning them! These do need to be baked at high heat to crisp them up, but you also have to keep a very close eye on them. Spread them out well on the pan and don't let them lie on top of each other too much or you will have patches of crispy burnt fries with patches of not completely cooked fries.
I tossed these with just a little bit of canola oil, cinnamon, and brown sugar before baking. Then, after baking, I sprinkled with some pink crystal salts. These had the perfect amount of sweet, spice, and salt and Grumpy and I ate these, and these alone for lunch one day! I also flavored some with a little cayenne pepper to give it a heat factor.

I LOVE shoestring fries! They're like that brownie pan with all corners; CRISPY!! And sweet potatoes at that. My fave!

We LOVE making shoestring fries with my new spiralizer. I've struggled with baking them because they don't get crispy, I'll definitely try it your way. AND with cinnamon, I'm sold!

I just got a spiralizer and now I have a recipe to use it with!
Spiralizers are looking more and more necessary with every recipe I see that needs one 😛 I don't think my husband would be too happy with me getting another kitchen appliance though! I barely have room for what I have. I love the idea of making shoestring fries with sweet potatoes - I am sure my kids would LOVE this!
Great idea for using the spiralizer!
wow I know these are beyond delicious!

So simple but look so good!
Another reason to break out my spiralizer! Thanks for the recipe!
I love that these are sweet and savory!
I can't believe these are baked not fried. Great recipe!
Yum yum yum! I love using my spiralizer - and for shoestring fries - what could be better?!
I've so far resisted a spiralizer purchase but this recipe might be the final push I need. Your crispy, salty sweet potatoes look wonderful, Shelby!
Oh, wow! Another reason to get my spiralizer out of the box! I love sweet potato fries and your shoestring version looks fantastic!!!
