baked sweet potato fries

One of our favorite meals is bean burgers with sweet potato fries.  It is easy and yummy.  Especially if you have bbq sauce for the fries.

So here are the fries.  I will do the bean burgers tomorrow.

Sweet Potato Fries

1/2 to 1 sweet potato per person (this will depend on the size of the sweet potato)

olive oil



Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Peel the sweet potatoes and slice in fry shape.  For crispy fries, you will want thin.  For none crispy, you will wish to make them thick.  Put on a baking dish, cookie sheet, oven proof skillet, or pizza pan.  One of my pizza pans is cast iron and it works superb with this.

Drizzle with olive oil.  Toss around.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Just a little at this stage.

Put in the oven for ten minutes.  Stir.  Put in the oven for ten more minutes.  Stir again.  Back in the oven for at least ten more minutes.  If they are as crispy as you wish, pull them out.  If not, stir and back in to the oven they go until as crispy as you like.

Taste one and see if they need anymore salt or pepper.  This is all about your taste.  Serve and enjoy.  Like I said, bbq sauce goes really well with them.  And those are bean burgers in the picture.
