Cinnamon-Sugar and Ginger-Roasted Potato Sticks

I’ve had quite a few potato recipes lately because I had several taters on my hands that needed to be used, and a husband who will never say no to potatoes.  Today’s recipe is my latest spud creation.

It was met with husband approval.

You may enjoy serving these potatoes with everything from ketchup to maple syrup to cinnamon-flavored cream cheese.  What can I say, I live for dips and condiments and creative flavor combinations.

Or simply eat the cinnamon sugar and ginger roasted potato sticks plain.

And yes, I think this is my last tater recipe for a bit.

No more spuds.  For awhile.

Cinnamon-Sugar and Ginger-Roasted Potato Sticks

1 large potato, chopped into sticks

2 to 3 tbsp EVOO or coconut oil

1 tsp ground ginger

1 tbsp cinnamon

2 tbsp brown sugar (or use white sugar, stevia, reduce/omit the sugar)

Optional: pinch of nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, cardamom, garam masala, or other warming spices


Place potatoes in a bowl and add all ingredients.  Toss with a spoon to coat.  Place potato sticks on foil-lined baking sheet (to save on clean-up time).  Bake at 400F for 30-40 minutes (or until crispy).  Flip potatoes once halfway through cooking to ensure even crisping.  Because brown sugar caramelizes, watch them near the end of the cooking time to make sure they don’t burn.

Do you ever make your potato recipes sweet?  Are you a potato fan?

She’s a fan!

  3. I usually do say no to potatoes, but man those look awesome!! Think if they are on the menu of the Gerson Therapy for Cancer, then they can’t be all bad! Beautiful photos!

  4. I love this! I do cinnamon sugar squash and sweet potato all the time, but it never occurred to me to do it with regular potatoes!

  5. I just made roasted potatoes, but I didn’t think of adding cinnamon and ginger! what a great idea!

  6. I prefer savoury flavours to sweet, so I usually don’t make my potatoes sweet.

  7. These look just fabulous. I bet the cinnamon sugar would work on roasted sweet potato wedges equally well.

  10. Yum, these Cinnamon Sugar & Ginger Roasted Potato Sticks sound amazing, awesome job!

    1. I’ve done sweet recipes with sweet potatoes, but never the white variety.
    2. Sure, the lighting and contrast seem better.
    3. Well, we’re getting tons of rain and wind gust up to 70 MPH today, so I’m okay with spending it indoors at work!:-)

  11. I always add cinnamon to my sweet potato fries! Sometimes I’ll just do cinnamon, others I’ll throw in some curry, celtic sea salt, cracked pepper and nutmeg in too. I <3 cinnamon and sweet potatoes.

  12. I indulged and had Sweet Potato fries this past weekend! I forgot how amazing they can be sometimes

  13. She’s so cute! And I can’t tell you how good these fries look. Yum!

  14. J’adore! Sweet twists on savory foods are my fave:)

  15. Yum! I love the spices you used.. normally I wouldn’t think to use them with white potatoes.. but I’ll bet it’s really good.

    I love potatoes. I scored 3 lbs of organic red potatoes for .99 recently from my reduced produce bin.. I love using them in soup the most!

  16. I love, love, love potatoes, but I just can’t handle them any way but savory. Sweet potatoes? Blech. Sweet veggies just bug me for some reason. Parsnips and carrots are fine raw, but I have had them roasted and for some reason it’s just too sweet. I can eat a pound of dessert that other people say “oh I can only eat one bite, it’s soooo rich” and my tastebuds don’t understand the concept. And yet, sweet veggies throw me off.

  17. You completed afewfine points there. I did a search on the subject and found nearly allpeople will consent with your blog.

  18. NOw that is a potato recipe I can get down with! Anything with cinnamon and sugar…I’m game.

    I can actually tell, I think, some of the photos that had the exposure altered. The plate looks UBER white!

  19. Yum! You are a genius! Those look so good.

  20. LOVE sweet style potatoes :) yours look FABULOUS! and they got the hubbys approval YES!

  21. Oh my gosh those potatoes sound so good! I think I will make them tomorrow. I love potatoes and I love cinnamon/sugar. Im excited :)

  22. Those potato sticks sound great! Almost like a substitute for french toast sticks :-) This recipe would be wonderful with yams too!
