My kids love sweet potatoes and they are always a home-run side dish to serve at my house. One of our favorite burger restaurants in Birmingham, Baja Burger, makes great sweet potato fries. I replicated the recipe making them thicker but also lower in fat (and no fried okra, unfortunately). Try this recipe as it’s so simple and a true family favorite.
Sweet Potato Fries
3 large sweet potatoes (about 11/2 lb.), peeled and cut into 2-inch slices
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1. Spray an aluminum foil-lined jelly-roll pan with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 425F.
2. Combine sweet potatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper in a freezer bag or large bowl, tossing to coat. Place in a single layer in pan.
3. Bake at 425F for 20 minutes or until crisp, stirring every 10 minutes. Increase heat to 450F and cook 10 minutes more.
