Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Print Friendly and PDF
Here's a nice alternative to French fries and healthier for you too since it's baked and not fried. Very little oil is used in this recipe. You can cut the sweet potatoes or yams into matchstick size pieces or large wedges, and just vary your baking time accordingly. Sweet potatoes have lots of vitamins A, C and B6. It's a good side dish for ribs or chicken with barbeque sauce. We had it with grilled turkey burgers.

2 medium size sweet potatoes or yams
1 T canola or olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

Cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise into strips or wedges. Spray a cookie sheet with PAM. In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with the oil, salt and pepper. Bake at 450 degrees for 15-30 min. depending on the thickness. Serve hot with barbeque sauce, ketchup or a ranch dressing dip.
