1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste
- Heat the oven to 400.
- Cut the sweet potatoes into sticks that are about 1/2 inch wide and 3 inches long.
- Toss sweet potatoes with the olive oil and set aside.
- Mix the spices, salt, and pepper in a small bowl, and sprinkle them over the sweet potatoes. Cover a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spread fries on top of it so that none are overlapping.
- Bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown and crisp on the bottom. Then, turn them over and cook until the other side is crisp – for about 10 minutes more.
Pro-tip: Prior to cooking, soak pre-cut sweet potatoes in water for an hour. This will help make the fries crisper.
