My new favorite side dish – sweet potato fries. Walter gobbles them up in the blink of an eye. He takes after his mama – he likes the sweet/salty combo too. I've learned to make really big batches so we don't have to fight over them.
sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch spears
Preheat the oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Toss potato spears with olive oil - just enough to coat. Spread them on the baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt. Bake for 15 minutes, then turn with a spatula or tongs. Bake for another 5 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Nate dips them in ketchup, but Walter and I like them just as they are.
