|Bakes Sweet Potato Fries|
Baked sweet potato fries are so easy and delicious and require very little preparation. They barely made it to the table for dinner ... as you can see, one of the littles decided to help herself to the plate before I could serve it!
I like to estimate about 1 large sweet potato for every 2 people. Peel the sweet potatoes and slice them into fry-like pieces.
Season them with salt and pepper and drizzle them some olive oil - about 2 to 3 tablespoons. I toss them together with my fingers to evenly coat the potatoes.
Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and then spread the fries in an even layer. The more spread out they are, the more evenly they will cook. If you cram a bunch of fries onto your pan, they will not cook as well. (Confession: I usually cram a lot onto the pan, simply because I want to have enough to feed the masses seated around my dinner table ... if you notice the picture above, my fries are not so crispy! )
Cook at 425 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes. Using a spatula, gently turn the sweet potato fries over and continue cooking for another 10 to 15 minutes - maybe more if you like them very well done.
