A little sweet and a little spicy, Baked Sweet Potato Fries are a deliciously easy side dish. Rich in vitamin A and fiber, these homemade fries are also a nutritional hit! They pair very well with my Mini Turkey Burgers. I do hope your family enjoys them like mine!
Baked Sweet Potato Fries (serves 6)
3 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch strips
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1-1/2 tablespoons (1 tablespoon plus 1-1/2 teaspoons) olive oil
1 teaspoon each: salt, cinnamon
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400°F. Place potatoes in a large bowl. Sprinkle with cornstarch and toss to coat. Drizzle olive oil over potatoes. Toss. Mix spices together and sprinkle over potatoes. Toss until evenly distributed. Spread potatoes onto two baking sheets.
Place potatoes in oven. After 8 minutes, remove from oven and turn potatoes. Return potatoes to oven for 8-10 minutes more. Turn off oven and let potatoes sit until ready to serve (up to 30 minutes). Enjoy!
