Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

One of my favorite restaurants in Austin serves sweet potato fries--they're so delicious that I'll keep eating them long after I'm not even hungry anymore. I've been looking a good recipe to make my own, and finally found this one. I was looking for a more spicy version because my son Luke likes food with a kick--and he says they were good. Luke-tested, mother-approved--it's a keeper!

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries 2 large sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 lbs.) 1/2 t. ground cumin 1/2 t. salt 1/4 t. ground red pepper 1 T. vegetable oil
  1. In a small bowl, combine cumin, salt and pepper. Set aside
  2. Peel potatoes, then cut each in half lengthwise, then each half into 6 wedges.
  3. In a large bowl, combine potato wedges, spice mixture and oil. Toss until completely coated.
  4. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes, and serve immediately. YUM!!
I served mine with roasted southwestern chicken and crispy kale chips--we loved the kale chips, too, so look for that recipe soon!

    I serve oven-roasted sweet potato fries often, but rarely season them with anything but salt (added when I take the fries out of the oven). We usually dip them in ketchup just as we do fried potatoes. Actually, I often mix sweet potatoes and potatoes on the same baking pan.
