Oven Baked Idaho and Sweet Potato-Cut Fries are spicy tasty fries without the frying!  These are fresh Idaho and sweet potatoes that are cut into French-fries size, topped with olive oil and spicy seasonings.  An easy recipe to make and bake, and one your family will definitely love!
Everyone loves French fries in my family. But as we all know, frying means more work, more cleanup and staying close to the stove at all times.
That’s why I chose to bake them this time.  Baked in the oven with multiple spices, gives them their full flavor and spicy kick!  No one even noticed or complained they weren’t fried.   They loved them!
Oven Baked Idaho and Sweet Potato-Cut Fries turned out to be SO flavorful.  No need to have the Ketchup on the table, at least no one asked for it this time.

This is much better recipe and a healthier one too!  A nice change from frying potatoes and much less work and faster cleanup.
You may also try using your own variations of herbs and spices to your liking.
