Sweet Potato Fries

Cut up sweet potatoes about 1/4" thick.
rinse them and pat them dry
lay them out on paper towel and sprinkle with salt (let sit to release moisture)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
dredge in seasoning:
  • 1 spoonfull of paprika
  • " salt
  • " garlic powder
  • " pepper
  • " onion powder
  • " oregano
  • " thyme
  • a cup or so of flour

place on greased baking sheet (do not let the fries touch eachother)

bake for about 5-10 minutes

Heat oil to about 360-375 degrees (med-high to high) watch so the oil doesn't burn!

take fries out of oven and place a few at a time in oil until golden and crispy. place on cookie cooling rack (upside down) over newspaper

This works well with Yams as well (you can also use this method without the seasonings and just add salt after frying)

serve with ranch/ketchup :) enjoy!!
