Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries


Sweet potato fries how do I love thee?  I love thee to the depth and breadth and height of your sweet potato-ness.  Ok, maybe not like an Elizabeth Barrett Browning sonnet but I really, really, really like you.  Are you singing Carly Rae Jepsen right now? I was singing it in my head as I was typing it.  Seriously though, sweet potato fries are wonderful.  These aren’t fried so they’re good for you as well as good tasting. They’re cut thin, simply seasoned and baked with only a tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of olive oil.  Then after a couple of minutes under the broiler, it’s time to eat them.  This makes enough for two so you can share, if you want to.

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

2 medium sweet potatoes

1 Tablespoon unsalted butter

1 Tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon seasoned salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into thin fries.  Place in a medium sized bowl.  Fill the bowl with water and let soak for 30 minutes.  Remove from water and place on layers of paper towels to drain.  Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave, 30 seconds or less.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Mix the olive oil with the butter.  Pat the sweet potatoes dry and place on a large cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with the butter mixture.  Sprinkle the seasonings evenly over the potatoes.  Using your hands, mix the fries around making sure to coat each one with the butter and seasonings.  Bake for 15-20 minutes.  Turn the heat up on the oven to broil and cook for an additional minute or two.  Watch them carefully to make sure they don’t burn.  Remove from the cookie sheet with a pancake turner and place on a paper towel lined plate.  Now enjoy!

Wishing you love, laughter and cake,
