Ok, I know that I once said it was too easy not to buy the frozen sweet potato fries. Well, I was wrong. I have found that I am too cheap to keep buying those frozen delights, but since they do make any meal fantastic, and toddlers love anything that resembles a fry, I found my own way. I served them up with chipotle ketchup too.
Wash and slice 2 sweet potatoes into wedges. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Spray with olive oil and sprinkle with choice of flavorings. I went with black pepper and chili powder tonight.
Bake at 425 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes, flipping wedges once half-way through baking.
Voila. Save yourself some money and make yourself happy and make these ASAP. Sweet potatoes are one veggie we always have around the house – they are so versatile and it helps that North Carolina is the sweet potato state. Check out this link to show how the sweet potato was carved that was featured on the cover of Our State magazine in November. Sorry if you missed that issue – it was a tasty one!
