Sweet potato fries

I don’t know why, but I have never been a big fan of sweet potatoes, and I guess by association, sweet potato fries. Lately with my change to Paleo, I have been thinking that I need to start expanding my palate. Perhaps foods that I once detested wont be so bad anymore.

So tonight I am attempting sweet potato fries. I don’t have a lot of experience making fries, and definitely not this variety. However, I am a big fan of carrot fries (which I will have to add on another post sometime) so I am just going to improvise this.

Since its just me, and even still it seems like a lot of fries…

1 average sized sweet potato
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper

Turn the oven on to 400 degrees

Line a backing sheet with parchment or as I am using because I’m out of parchment – aluminum foil

Peel and slice the sweet potato, I like to make things skinny because I like crispy!

Now coat the sticks of sweet potato in olive oil –Lightly! (I tossed them all in a baggie and poured in the oil and swooshed it around a bunch till everything was coated.

Bake in the oven for approx 30 minute turning half way through ( bake a bit more or less time depending on your taste preference)

Here are the photos from the preparation. In the last photo you will be able to confirm that my daughter definitely enjoyed these!
