Just dropping in to share a simple side dish we decided to whip up to accompany club sandwiches. I'm a big fan of fries, but oven fries are not really my thing. A bit too bland, I would say. However, sweet potatoes … a different story. I always have difficulty resisting a sweet and salty combo.
I was in too much a hurry today to cook completely so they didn't have time to crisp up. I did not complain as they were still very tasty but I might have to crank up the heat (or broil) for the last few minutes next time I make them.
Sweet Potato Oven Fries
- 4 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into strips
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 teaspoons salt
- Pepper, to taste
- 1 tablespoon paprika
Simply mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Make sure to coat every strip. Refrigerate for about an hour.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake for around 35 minutes, , or until crisp and slightly brown, turning halfway through.
