Skip the drive-thru, those overly salty grease sticks can’t compare to homemade sweet potato fries!
FOR A PRINTABLE VERSION CLICK HERE: Oven Fries
4 medium baking potatoes or sweet potatoes (I chose sweet potatoes)
2 Tbs oil
1/2 tsp salt
1. Preheat oven to 425F.
2. Scrub and dry potatoes (no need to peel, unless you really want to). Slice or wedge them any way you wish. Put into a container with an airtight lid, add the oil, and shake to coat.
3. Sprinkle on the salt or any other seasonings that you wish (Simply in Season provides recipes for Greek-style fries, Super spicy fries, or rosemary garlic)
4. Spread in a single file on a baking sheet and bake 30-45 minutes or until fork tender, stirring/flipping every 5-10 minutes. Serve immediately.
5. Note: Nutrition info is calculated for regular potatoes.
The verdict: DH and I couldn’t get enough of these. Truly, they were as good as the ones at my favorite local restaurant. The leftover cilantro sauce from the fish tacos were the PERFECT accompaniment.

I’ll be trying these for sure. We love oven fries here, but my sweet potato ones always come out soggy. I will overcome!

used this for the brunch i hosted today…. just chopped up potatoes and since i had a quiche in the oven at the same time i had to do it at 400-so they ended up being in the oven a little over an hour and flipped once…. Big hit!
