Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Note: French fries are one thing, but sweet potato fries are amazing! They are sweet, crispy, delicious, but most of all, addictive.

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries


1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoons ground red pepper
1 tablespoons
vegetable oil
2 large (about 1 1/2 pounds) sweet potatoes


Prepare the sweet potatoes: In a small bowl, combine cumin, salt, and pepper. Set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Peel potatoes, cut each in half lengthwise, and cut each half into 6 wedges. In a large bowl, combine the cut potatoes, oil, and spice mixture. Toss until potatoes are evenly coated.

Bake the fries: On a baking sheet, arrange potatoes in a single layer and place on the middle shelf of the oven. Bake until edges are crisp and potatoes are cooked through -- about 30 minutes. Serve immediately.

And several restaurants in the area are starting to add them to their menu.

These are great. I have only made them once before but need to again. Fries are one of my favs so it's nice to have alternatives like this.
