I LOVE LOVE sweet potato fries, and it makes me happy to know that they are also a healthier alternative than regular french fries made from regular potatoes (so that means I can eat more, right?? HA! I wish!). So I make these as a great side dish for our family dinners and they are super duper easy.
All you need, is your sweet potatoes. Peel them and slice them pretty thin (not TOO thin, but not too thick either).
Then I toss them in a bowl with like seriously a drop of olive oil. You don’t have to, you can spray Pam if you want, but I do it just for a tiny hint of flavor. Lay them single layer on a baking sheet sprayed with Pam, too. (I always cover my baking sheets w foil for easy cleanup!) Sprinkle a bit of salt on them, and bake them at 425 for about 30 min??? In all honestly, I didn’t look at the clock but kept looking at them, to watch them get golden and crispy looking. You can tell when they get color, they are ready.
And the finished product?
I sprinkle a bit more salt when they come out. I swear I can eat the WHOLE bowl full….. and so can my son! Do you make sweet potato fries? Is this how you make yours?
