Spicy, salty, and slightly sweet, these baked sweet potato fries are totally healthy for you, but taste sinfully delicious. Plus, they are easy to make. All you need are sweet potatoes and a few spices. They taste like they took a plunge in the deep-fryer, but I promise, there will be no deep-fryer in sight.
Cooking the fries under the broiler is the key to fries that are lightly crispy on the outside just like regular fries. We will have no soggy sweet potato fries here! So get out your peeler, knife, and a baking sheet... you'll be looking for every excuse to make these as often as possible.
Sweet Potato Fries: makes two side servings
2 medium to large sweet potatoes, preferably elongated in shape
1 T. salt
1 T. cayenne pepper
2 t. chili powder
2 t. cinnamon
Peel the sweet potatoes, then cut down the length of the potatoes to produce 1/2 inch slices. Place the uncooked fries on a baking sheet. Spray with cooking spray, then evenly sprinkle with salt, cayenne, chili powder, and cinnamon. Turn and toss them gently on the sheet to evenly distribute the spices.
Cook under the broiler set on Low, turning the fries every few minutes to evenly brown on each side.
