Expert Tips

To allow even cooking of sweet potatoes, cut them into long, thin fries. Thicker cut sweet potatoes may need to be baked in a 400°F oven for 10 to 12 minutes longer to ensure a crisp-tender final product.

If you don't have real maple syrup for the yogurt dipping sauce, a drizzle of honey can be substituted.
