Sweet Potatoe Fries
I love me some sweet potatoes! They aren't that pretty but they are so real, so unpretentious, so delicious and you guessed it; I'm the only one in my house that eats them. A.J. was a good sport and tried. He said they were good, but no one scrapes them off their plate that fast into the garbage when they like something. What happened to the "Clean Plate Club"?
The homegirlz were off for the weekend so they were spared.
They were very good and very simple to prepare. I love the different flare they give to the overall meal. To me, it's like having dessert with dinner.
This recipe is for two servings. You can easily double it for four or triple it for six..
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 1 teaspoons of paprika and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
Peel and cut one sweet potato into strips. Be careful because sweet potatoes do not cut as easily as russets.
Toss the potato strips into the olive oil mixture, to coat well, and spread in a single layer onto baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and brown sugar.
Bake for 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes.
