Sweet potatoe — they’re way healthier than their non-sweet cousins, and provide extra vitamins and minerals. These Crash Hot Sweet Potatoes from are spicy hot and crispy, and reader Lainie decided to make them to share with her family.

Unfortunately, Lainie’s version didn’t look quite as perfect as the inspiration:

    It’s “potato” not “potatoe.” I thought everyone had that branded in their brains after this:

  2. Yeah, that was just a typo. It was supposed to say “potatoes.”

    I tried making these too but mine came out way worse than the picture above. Every one I tried to smash went sailing through my kitchen! I liked the spice combo with the brown sugar though and just cut up the sweet potato/yams into small pieces and roast them in the oven with that mixture. They came out much better.

    I gave these a shot and it worked out pretty well. They were really tasty but didn’t look as pretty as the original pic.

    I feel way better of my non-existing cooking skills after watching this…
