Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Until recently, I didn't like sweet potatoes.  I was the person who passed on the sweet potato casserole at Thanksgiving.  They always seemed too sweet to me.  I think it was this past Thanksgiving that I decided to give sweet potatoes one more chance, and I found that if I thought of them more like dessert than potatoes, I actually did like them.  I just had to get my mind to file them under the category I used for pumpkin pie.

Now I love sweet potato fries.  I don't know that I prefer them to regular fries, but they're just as good in their own dessert-like sweet way.  They're also just as easy to make.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries 


1 and 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes
1 tbsp olive oil


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Slice sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch long strips.  You can peel them, but it's not necessary.  Put the sweet potato strips in a bowl and toss them with the olive oil to coat.  Sprinkle with TexJoy and toss again.

Put parchment paper on a cookie sheet, and spread the fries in a single layer on top of the parchment paper.

Bake for 10 minutes.

Remove the fries from the oven and flip them over so that they cook evenly.  Sprinkle with more TexJoy and return them to the oven for 10 more minutes.

Happy eating!
