Sweet Potato Fries

Here is a favorite new staple for our snack and side dish menu. We simply slice up a sweet potato into 1/2" thick lengths (leave the skin on and do not wash). Then spray with olive oil and sprinkle a generous amount of salt and pepper. We back at 400F for 20 minutes. Then flip, spray, sprinkle and bake for another 20 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy a astonishingly sweet (now that the sugars have caramelized) sweet potato fry.

I baked sweet potato fries after seeing your photo and post. They were incredibly delicious! I used sea salt and coconut oil instead of olive oil. Thanks for such a tasty suggestion for a simple to prepare snack!

We've been making them non-stop. I love to dip the fries in a garlic aioli (oil based mayonnaise).

Why no washing?
