Sweet Potato Fries

Mmmmm these turned out as a delicious side dish! Yummy.

2-4 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed and patted dry
olive oil

Heat oven to 400. Peel sweet potatoes with potato peeler (or you can leave the skin on for extra nutrients!)

Slice sweet potatoes into thin strips - and try to slice them evenly, so they cook evenly. I found the easiest way to do this was chop the rounded ends off, then cut the potato in half again and again until I was left with little strips. Remember, the thinner they are, the quicker they look.

Place potato strips on large baking sheet so no fries are overlapping. Drizzle with olive oil and salt; shake the pan to coat evenly (another option here is to spray with Pam, or even better, use an olive oil spray can to evenly spray olive oil onto the fries.)

Bake for 20 minutes, and flip the fries. Bake another 20 minutes. Test for tenderness somewhere along there - if you like them, you can remove them early. If you want crunchy, let them go longer.
