Scrumptious Sweet Potato Fries

Standard

These babies have become a regular at our house.  We used to buy frozen bags of sweet potato fries and devour them all too quickly for their cost. Then one magical day we learned how easy and delicious they were to make ourselves. Add them to dinner, lunch or make them as a filling munchy-time snack.

Look at those beautiful little sweet potatoes up there.   They are calling out to be covered in seasoned salt and popped in a 375* oven!   After you’ve cut them into thick or thin wedges (we do a little of each because I like thick hubby likes thin) pour 1-2 tablespoons of any oil over top then sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder or seasoning salt of your choice.  Do this straight on the cutting board so you don’t dirty any extra dishes and just swirl it all around with your hands. Today I am using a steak seasoning salt from a local spice shop.

Then scrape this all onto a baking sheet and bake for 10-18 minutes at 375-400*.  These will not get crispy unless you cut them really small and burn them .  That is OK! Embrace their tender sweetness! You will know they are done when they are soft all the way through.  I usually give them a little flip/stir halfway through to even out the cooking because the side touching the baking sheet will get more brown than the side that is up. When you have decided that they are done, enjoy them plain or with mayonnaise and ketchup!  I do not have a picture of the finished product because the moment they came out of the oven…. I devoured them. 😀  oops.  Enjoy!
