Super Easy Sweet Potato Fries

sweet-potato-fries

I love fries.

Love them.

When I was little, here is a conversation you might have overheard in my Kindergarten class:

Teacher: What would you like to be when you grow up?

Nicole: A doctor!

Joey: A police officer!

Jessie: A cheerleader!

Me: I want to work at McDonald’s when I grow up so I can eat all the fries I want!

That is a true story.  That’s rather sad.

Anyway.

Sweet potato fries are a healthier twister on their white starchy counterparts.  They are baked and not fried, which obviously just adds to the nutritional benefit.  We like to enjoy these fries as a side dish to burgers, sandwiches or pizza!

You will need:

  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • cinnamon
  • salt

How to make:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  • Rinse sweet potatoes and pat dry.
  • Peel sweet potatoes.
  • Slice sweet potatoes into fry strips
  • Place sweet potatoes in a gallon freezer bag.  Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over fries.  Seal bag and shake to coat fries.
  • Spread fries in an even layer on a baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle fries with cinnamon and then salt.
  • Bake fries for about 45 minutes (until slightly brown and cooked through).  Flip fries over halfway through baking.
