I’ve been trying to eat better lately, but it is really hard because I love food that is really bad for you. I’m constantly trying to find ways to trick myself into thinking I’m eating what I want to be eating while really eating something healthy, for example, these delicious sweet potato fries. They are so easy to make and they allow me to pretend I’m pigging out on McDonald’s fries. Win, win.
I usually use two average sized sweet potatoes if I’m making these for multiple people. I only use olive oil, garlic, sea salt and pepper to season them, but you could get creative with it (maybe add some cinnamon? I dunno, do what you feel).
First, you want to skin the potatoes and cut them into fry shapes while pre-heating the oven to 425.
Once they’re all cut up, I throw them in a plastic bag, add the olive oil, garlic (usually powder or garlic salt), sea salt and pepper. Then shake!
Once they’re good and seasoned, I lay them out on a non stick cookie sheet or baking tray – no tin foil! I’ll use some Pam spray if I’m concerned about them sticking.
Bake for 15 minutes, take them out, flip them over, and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until you see the edges get a little brown and crispy.
And that’s it! Easy.
I accidentally burned a few in this batch – the larger you cut the fry shapes, the less likely they are to burn. My bad.
You can dip them in ketchup or eat them plain (my preference). Enjoy!!
