Sweet Potato Fries

I saw this recipe online somewhere a few days ago and I knew that you were supposed to use sweet potatoes, salt/seasoning, and olive oil. So I browsed around a couple websites and pretty much figured out what to do and just kind of went with it. How hard could it be?


* 2 medium/large sweet potatoes (for 2 people)
* Garlic salt/sea salt/garlic steak seasoning (we used all three separately in different sections)
* Olive oil


1. Slice sweet potatoes into a fry shape. You can either make them the "string" shape of fry or the "steak fry" shape. We did a little of both.
2. Toss in olive oil and then lay flat on a baking sheet.
3. Sprinkle seasonings of your choice all over fries. I have also read that paprika would be good. We just used a little bit of everything that we had in the house.
4. Bake at 400 degrees for 35-45 minutes, depending on how soft/crispy you like them and how thinly you sliced them. Flip them over halfway through.

I read online that sweet potatoes will never actually get that crispy, but using the olive oil and baking at a higher temperature can help. We only baked for about 35 minutes @ 400 and they probably could have used another 10 minutes or so. Oh well, next time!

These were really yummy and we'll definitely be making them again. (We ate them with grilled chicken breast with feta cheese on top.)
