Sweet Potato French Fries

Number served:

Ingredients:

  • sweet potatoes - 4 medium
  • Olive oil - 1/3 cup
  • salt (to taste) - 1/3 teaspoon

Directions:

These fries are tasty and also very healthy since they are baked and not fried. Turn oven on and set to 400 degrees. Peal the sweet potatoes and cut them into the shape of french fries. Poor most of the olive oil onto a cookie sheet and roll the raw sweet potato french fries in the oil to cover them. Then spread out the french fries and dribble the remaining olive oil over the fries. Don't worry if the oven is fully pre-heated. The oven can continue to heat up while the fries are cooking. It will take about 30 minutes to cook the fries if you cut them sweet potato into thin pieces, and a little longer if the fries are thicker.
