Oven-Fried Sweet Potatoe Fries

When you're in the south you can find out people like me will bring a WOW moment to the table.like these sweet potato fries. Ohhhhh Boy! They are so good when they are hot are even when they cool off. Try them with my easy recipe. You can't go wrong, I promise you...


2 lbs sweet potatoes , peeled, and cut like ranch fries

2 tablespoon olive oil or cooking oil

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (to taste) (optional)

nonstick cooking spray


Line a sheet tray with parchment. In a large bowl toss sweet potatoes with just enough oil to coat. Sprinkle sugar and spice. Spread sweet potatoes in single layer on prepared baking sheet, being sure not to overcrowd. Bake until sweet potatoes are tender and golden brown about 20 minutes. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

Another Thing....For a humble root vegetable, the sweet potato sure does have a lot going for it. The orange tuber packs 438% of your daily value of infection-fighting vitamin A and, like carrots, sweet potatoes are a major source of skin-protecting beta-carotene.

Bake Some these Goodness...

Just rub them down with cooking oil and bake them until fork tender in a 350 oven.
