Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Posted in Vegetables at 10:53 am by Sheila OConnell

The title says it all.

1 large sweet potato
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
parchment paper

Peel the sweet potato and cut it into sticks that are about 3 inches long and 1/4 – 1/2 inch wide. Toss the sweet potato sticks in a bowl with the olive oil. Mix the spices together in a small bowl, then add to the sweet potato and toss. Heat a large tray in the oven at 400 until it is hot, then remove it and put a sheet of parchment paper on it. Distribute the sweet potato sticks evenly on the parchment paper so they are not touching each other. Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes, then flip the sticks over, then bake about another 10 minutes until they are getting brown on the edges and crispy.

The parchment paper is optional, but it helps make the sweet potatoes crispier.
The thinner the sticks, the crispier they will be. Also thinner cooks faster, so be careful not to burn them.
You can vary the amount of spice; I mixed up the spices in the amounts above but didn’t use all of the spice mixture, because it seemed like too much for one potato.
