Sweet Potato Fries

I love fries. Yup, full admission. If I have the choice of fries or fruit as my side, you better believe I am picking the fries. I decided to stay in last night instead of going to dinner as planned (yes, the reason is that I could not stop playing with my new camera). But I was craving some fries. And we had a sweet potato. And then these were made:

They were delicious and hit the spot. (And they photograph nicely, don’t they?)

A quick step by step:

To start, you peel your sweet potato and chop it into even pieces (around 1/2 inch each)

Drizzle your olive oil over the top:

Then add your spices and mix:

Layer onto a baking try and cook for 15 minutes (flip half way) and eat!

This is what happens when you don’t cut your slices evenly… (whoops)
