Sweet potatoes seem like an Autumn ingredient, along with pumpkins and apples, and maple syrup, but I'm especially fond of them year-round.
I also think of sweet potatoes as the healthier alternative to red or Russet potatoes and when you prepare them as I do, they are VERY healthy!!
This recipe is so easy (I know, I say that a lot...but this truly is!). One ingredient (sweet potatoes), one step in the recipe (put in the oven) and you are done (besides eating, of course)!
So, go ahead: EAT!!
Sweet Potato Fries
2 sweet potatoes, cut into sticks, 1/4” square x length of potato
2 tbsp olive oil
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Place sweet potatoes on 2 large baking sheets and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Transfer to the oven and cook for 15 minutes. Flip the sweet potatoes and continue baking for another 15-20 minutes longer. Remove from oven, sprinkle with flaky salt and serve!
Chef’s Note: If doubling, make sure to use extra sheet pans. If you crowd them all onto one pan, they will steam vs bake and won’t be crispy.
