French fries are absolutely, 100% my favorite food. Yep, could I have picked a worse one for you? I love every french fry, in any way, shape or form. I don’t discriminate. With that being said, sweet potato fries are NOT the same. Not even close. Don’t me wrong, I love a good sweet potato and I thoroughly enjoyed the following recipe; but they’ll never hold a candle to my french fry obsession. Nope. Never. Alright, fry ramble over, let’s move on.
I promise, these sweet potato fries are incredibly easy to make a fabulous healthy side dish. They might not be my guilty fried pleasure, but they’ll get the job done. So here ya go!
Sweet Potato Fries
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 1/2 tbl olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil.
Slice sweet potatoes into even “fry-sized” slices. Put into a bowl and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Distribute fries onto prepared baking sheet and put in the oven. Cook for 15 minutes, then remove from oven and flip fries over. Put back in the over for another 15 minutes. Be sure to check on fries intermittently, as mine got a little toastier than anticipated!
