Baked Sweet Potato FriesSome time in the last couple years sweet potato fries started showing up at restaurants all over North America and to my surprise I actually liked the healthy alternative much more than traditional French fries! Unfortunately they are typically fried at restaurants, but it doesn't mean you can't make a nice healthy baked alternative in the comfort of your own home!

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb sweet potatoes
  • Garlic powder
  • Non-stick cooking spray or olive oil

Preparation:

  • Cut the sweet potatoes into wedges; if you like thicker fries cut them thick, if you like them shoestring fries, cut them very thin.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Lightly spray your sweet potato wedges with the non stick cooking spray, or lightly brush the fries with olive oil.
  • Lay the sweet potato fries out evenly across your baking sheet.
  • Bake the fries for 30-35 minutes or until a fork can be gently pushed through the sweet potato.
  • Make sure to flip the sweet potato fries once while baking them.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle with garlic powder!
