Sweet Potato Fries

I was skeptical about SWEET POTATO fries but these were so good! I didn't have the patience to wait for them to crisp up but they were still delicious soft. And supposedly sweet potatoes are healthy so double bonus! Add any seasoning you want. If you want some spice I'd recommend a dash of cayenne pepper. This is nice and flexible for your individual needs and taste preferences. Serves 4.

Sweet Potato Fries

4 medium sized (smooth-skinned) sweet potatoes
1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly oil large cookie sheet or jelly roll pan; set aside. Peel sweet potatoes, if desired, and cut into equal fry-size slices (you know, long, rectangular shapes like the picture above).
2. Add potato pieces to bowl or ziplock bag. Add oil and and stir or shake to coat. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika; mix to coat.
3. Place in single layer on prepared baking sheet without overcrowding. Bake 15 minutes in preheated oven. Flip fries with a spatula and bake another 10 to 15 minutes more, or until fries have turned from glossy to matte skin (if you want them a little crispy).
