Thai Spiced Baked French Fries

Guess what? My Thai Spiced French Fries have made it to the Alexia Foods top four in the semi finals of the Reinvent a Classic blogger contest.There were a few things for certain when it came to my contest entry. I knew I wanted to use sweet potatoes and I wanted a unique flavor twist. The Thai spice adds lots of flavor. I also knew I wanted julienne cut fries because those are best for dipping.

I don’t want to get too specific on the measurement of spices & seasonings used for this recipe as you can adjust to taste.

Use russet or sweet potatoes. A combo of both would be wonderful too.
