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?
