Baked Sweet Potato Fries


The first time I had sweet potato fries with a balsamic drizzle was at a restaurant called Nest- and I loved them!  I usually like anything sweet potato, but the balsamic drizzle really gave it a great taste.  However, in my quest to be healthier, I wanted to try baking them instead of frying them.  So I tried a variety of thicknesses, baking temperatures, and times- finally settling on the one below.  To be fair, they do not taste like “fries” because they don’t have that same crunch.  That being said, I still liked them, and felt a whole lot better about eating them!  I served these fries with a balsamic drizzle (next post) for Thanksgiving.

Ingredients

1 lb sweet potato, cut into long fries (~1/4 inch thick)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp black pepper

Directions

1.  Toss everything together.

2.  Arrange the fries in a single layer in a 9×13 baking tray.  Bake at 425 F for 12 mins.  Flip them and bake for an additional 12 min.
