Hi All!  I had a question to see if anyone has ever made french fries (baked) with regular AND sweet potatoes at the same time?  I've actually never cooked with sweet potatoes but for some reason I think they'll take longer to cook than regular potatoes.  Would anyone recommend blanching them or just throw them in the oven with the oil and seasoning?

If you cut the sweet potatoes slightly thinner than the regular potatoes, it will work perfectly -- I've done it before with no problems.  If you're really concerned, you can bake the regular potatoes and sweet potatoes on two separate trays at the same time.  That way, you can take the trays out at different times if you think that one is done first.  Good luck!

In my experience of cooking Sweet Potato (the orange kind) and Potatoes at the same time, mainly roasting, the SP cooks quicker..

The different trays could be a good idea..  I'd do SP bottom of oven, potatoes mid - top of oven..

This is how I do it as well. Mmm now I am craving sweet potato fries...
