Recipe by Mrs.Muffins

Sweet potato fries are a favorite in our house and are so satisfying they could almost be a meal on their own. This is a savory version of our favorite fries. We enjoy dipping ours in barbecue sauce!

Made for a light little snack after lunch for us. These really beat buying those frozen sweet potatoes in the store. I made this as posted cutting the garlic powder, and pepper ammounts using 1/4 teaspoons each. These had a real nice combo of seasonings in these, and this is something I will make in the future. Served these with recipe#353426#353426. Made for 2011 Cookbook Tag.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Wash the potatoes with cool water and pat dry. No need to peel them but you can pull of the little "stems".
  3. Cut the potatoes into fry-size pieces. If you don't have a fancy gadget for this, I suggest enlisting your husband to do this because sweet potatoes are hard to cut!
  4. Place all the fries in a gallon size Ziploc bag along with the oil. Seal the bag and toss to coat.
  5. Open the bag and add in the seasonings. Toss again until all the fries are evenly coated.
  6. Spread the fries out on two baking sheets. This gives them enough room to get crispy. If they're too crowded, they just get steamed and soggy.
  7. Bake the fries in the oven for 15 minutes and then turn the fries using a pair of tongs or a spatula. Bake for another 15 minutes.
  8. Fries should be slightly crisp. Some black on the edges is okay, since it's pretty tasty, just not too much!
