Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries

DSC_0378

These are SO GOOD! These fries are extremely easy to make and much healthier than actually frying them. Be generous with the salt and pepper and make sure they’re cooked till they start to char a bit. I usually just eat these as a snack but they can work as a side dish too.

    Hi,
    On Rachel’s show today 8/27/14 she did a sweet potato fry done in the oven. She boiled the potatoes first, then baked. Saw the tail end of the show and need ingredients.
    They looked good.
    Plmk,
    Thanks,
    Rich
