Oven Roasted Sweet Potato Fries ~ Oh My
This was a super-easy side dish that’s good for you too! I didn’t really follow a recipe but I’ll make one for you below. You’ll be seasoning them to your own liking so you’ll be very nervous if you’re like me and you prefer amounts and measurements. These came out crispy on the outside and soft inside – my husband loved them.
Start by peeling your sweet potatoes. I only used one large one for the two of us. You can use as many as you’ll eat. (I think the vegetable I used was technically a yam but ‘yam fries’ sounds sort of… not right. No one would want to make ‘yam fries’. I know I wouldn’t.) Slice them as uniformly as you can so that all the pieces are somewhat the same size and shape and will cook evenly. Obviously the thinner they are sliced, the crispier they’ll be.
Toss them in a large bowl with olive oil, parsley, oregano and kosher salt until they’re coated. I was very liberal in my seasonings. Lay them out on a foil-lined baking sheet so that they don’t touch each other. Fights will break out if they are touching and you’ll have to move some to another pan.
Bake in a preheated oven at 425° for about 25-30 minutes, turning once during roasting.

sweet potatoes or yams
Peel and slice sweet potatoes into uniform fries. Toss in a large bowl with oil and seasonings to match your own taste preference. All the fries should have a light coating of oil. Arrange on a foil-lined baking sheet so that the fries aren't touching each other - that way they'll 'crisp' on all sides. Bake at 425° for 25-30 minutes, turning the fries once during roasting. Enjoy!
