Sweet potato "fries" - your new favorite snack!

I found the basis for this recipe last December, and I made these delicious "fries" every day for months. Now that the sweet potatoes are out of the ground, I'm so excited to be able to make them again! 

The spices are totally up to you. You can mix, match, go heavy, go light, whatever. The important thing is not skimping on the oil. Here's my favorite combination I've found:


2 lb Blenheim Sweet Potatoes
2 tbsp Olive Oil

A hearty dash of:
Garlic Powder
Cayenne pepper (optional)
Onion powder

Preheat oven to 450. Cut sweet potatoes into 1/4-inch strips. On a baking sheet, drizzle them generously with oil and spices. Spread them out so they're not lying on top of each other.

Bake for 15 minutes. Turn them over, then bake for about 20 more. If you like them really crispy, set the oven to "broil" for the last 5 minutes.
