Sweet Potato Fries

Hello everyone, so I have said a million times that I was making sweet potato fries but it never dawned on me to give you all my recipe for them.  Well consider today lucky Thursday because that is my recipe today.  They are just as easy as regular fries but they have a little bit more nutritional value.  Since sweet potatoes are not really a potato at all but they are in the squash family, so they have no fat, no sodium, they are high in beta carotene along with other vitamins and minerals that you body needs.  So here is the recipe and I am very excited about sharing this yummy treat with you all.


1-2 large sweet potatoes if you are cooking for more people make more just figure about a half of a large sweet potato per person since they are very large.

1 teaspoon of garlic and onion powders
1 teaspoon of oregano 
1/8 teaspoon of ground red pepper (not the flakes)
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
cooking spray


Preheat your oven to 425.  Then start peeling your potatoes and cutting them in french fry  slices.  Put them aside and mix up your spices in a mixing bowl.  Next coat your sweet potatoes in the extra virgin olive oil.  Then put the fries in the mixing bowl with the spices and mix it around with your hands until all of the potatoes are coated.  From here line a cookie sheet with tin foil and spray your non stick cooking spray just to cover the foil on the cookie sheet.  Add your sweet potatoes onto the cookie sheet and bake for about 30-45 minutes depending on how crisp you like them.  This recipe is my families favorite and they all get excited when I make them.  I hope you all live, laugh and love everyone!

Here is my youtube video on how to make the sweet potato fries, its a double duty video when I made black bean burgers to go along with them.
