Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Written By: Chris - May• 30•13
We’ve been incorporating more sweet potatoes into our diet and generally when cooking I try to bake rather than fry!  These are a very simple recipe for baking and we all really enjoy them.  If you want, you an add additional seasoning and spices such as paprika, garlic powder, etc.  Just toss it with the salt & pepper.  I usually make them with simple salt and dip them in a seasoned Aioli or even ketchup!

Ingredients:
2 Sweet Potatoes, large
Olive Oil, for tossing also Vegetable or Canola work fine
Sea Salt (coarse)
Fresh Black Pepper, to taste
Wash and completely dry the potatoes

Preheat oven to 450 degrees
You can either peel the potato or leave the skin on, which adds nutrition. Start by cutting the sweet potato in half and if you don’t like skinny narrow ends, which may get more crispy when baking then remove them before cutting the fries.  Take each half of the sweet potato and cut it into large slices about 3/4 inch thick and then cut each slice into 1/22 inch to 3/4 inch thick fries.

Use a cooking stone, or line a baking sheet tray with foil or parchment paper.  Either in a large bowl or directly on your stone the cut fries enough oil to coat  them and sprinkle with a good pinch of salt.
If desired, also season with pepper and/or any other dry spices of your choice and spread the cut fries out evenly on the baking sheet.  The fries should not be sitting in oil, rather just have a shine.  If you prefer more crispy, do not allow fries to touch during the baking and be sure not to overcrowd.  Bake them until they are tender and golden brown on the first side while trying to avoid opening the oven for the first 15 minutes or so.  Once browned, turn them again and cook an additional 10 minutes or so depending on how dark you like them.  (You may need or prefer to turn them a couple of times)
Enjoy!
Cheers!
