Sweet Potato Fries

People call yams sweet potatoes all the time and I find it annoying. Yams=orange. Sweet potatoes=yellow. Sweet potatoes=a super food packed with TONS of nutrients and good stuff. Yams=good, but not AS good.

I decided to make sweet potato fries with actual sweet potatoes.

I didn't really use a recipe sooo....yeah.

-Cut up 3 sweet potatoes

-Place on a foil covered cookie sheet (clean up is so much easier)

-Drizzle with olive oil

-sprinkle with a mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, and ground cayenne pepper. I used approximately 1 Tbl brown sugar, 1/8 teas cinnamon, even less pepper.

Bake for 30-35 mins at 350 degrees.

I probably should have turned them halfway through. They were half really soft and half nice and crispy and carmalized-y.

Overall, though? Success!! And totally good for you.
