Everyone has been talking about sweet potato fries lately. And, are they ever good. Delicious blend of sweet and salty... excellent.
Sweet Potato Fries
1-4 large sweet potatoes (depending on how many fries you want)
~ 1 T olive oil (enough to lightly coat the fries)
Salt, to taste
Wash, peel and cut the sweet potatoes into "fries". Mine always end up different shapes and sizes, but they still taste great :)
Toss sweet potatoes in olive oil until lightly coated. Add a bit of salt too.
Place sweet potatoes in a pan (ungreased is fine if you have enough oil on the potatoes), and spread them out so they are not overlapping.
Bake at 425 for about 10 minutes, then flip over. Fries get mushy first, but keep cooking to crisp up. I often turn down the heat to 400 or less and continue cooking for an additional 10-20 minutes until desired crispness is reached. Keep checking the fries until you know your oven, how you like your fries, and to prevent from burning! The bottom sides burn really quickly with the oil...
Enjoy warm, sprinkled with a little salt.
