Yummy Sweet Potato Fries

We had these tasty fries again tonight and they were wonderful. I made them two weeks ago and ate all of them by myself, so I went ahead and doubled the recipe tonight. The kids love them. They aren't overly sweet, but have very nice flavor. If you like your fries crispy, be sure to cut them thin, and if you like them a little squishy, make them chunky. Enjoy!

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries
serves 4-6

1 - 1 1/2 lb sweet potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (preferably the easy release kind).

Peal the sweet potatoes. Cut into strips that are about 1/2 inch wide on each side.

Place the sweet potatoes into a sealable plastic bag. Add oil, salt, paprika and cinnamon. Seal the bag and shake well to thoroughly coat the fries. Spread the potatoes out onto the baking sheet in a single layer.

Cook for 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes. Transfer immediately to a paper towel lined plate and serve warm.

We love sweet potatoes in my house! I cut them up in bite size slices and bake with oil, salt, and pepper. I like them squishy.
