Homemade Oven Sweet Potato Fries

I have been looking at 3 sweet potatoes in my kitchen for a few days.  Originally, I had planned to bake them whole, but then was inspired to try out some homemade sweet potato fries!  It was super easy to do and the entire family loved them.  Sweet Potatoes are high in Beta-Carotene, which can be converted to Vitamin A in your body & has shown to be protective against cancers, along with reducing the rate of heart disease.  Here is what I did:
  • I took my 3 sweet potatoes and cut them into strips.  I found that the more traditional "french fry" shape baked the best in the oven.  The thicker cut strips were borderline soggy.
  • I brushed the sweet potatoes with about 3 TBSP of an olive oil/canola oil blend.
  • I then added 1 TBSP of garlic salt, 2 TBSP of oregano, & shook it all up in this container:
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and place your sweet potato fries evenly on a non-stick pan.
  • Cook for 15 minutes and flip them over.  Then, cook for 15 more minutes.
  • Take them out of the oven and enjoy them!  My 3 medium sweet potatoes could feed 4-6 people with no problem.  YUM!!!!
