Sweet Potato “Fries”

If you have left over sweet potatoes—and you probably do, these are so fantastic, even your pickiest eater will probably like them.

Ingredients

Olive oil
Sweet potatoes
Salt
Paprika

Procedure

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Peel sweet potatoes, and cut in half the long way. Then cut slices about ½ inch thick. Cut the slices in half again so that you have sticks approximately ½ inch to a side.

Liberally grease a cookie sheet with olive oil. I use about 3 Tablespoons for a sheet. Place potato slices on cookie sheet and give a good stir so that they are well coated with the oil. Sprinkle well with salt and paprika.

Bake in middle of oven for 15-20 minutes or until browned on the bottom. Turn slices over so browned side is on top and continue to bake for another 5-10 minutes or until crisp all around.

Serve as a side dish with ketchup or all by themselves.
