Ingredients

  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes, or 3 large
  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • 1 T salt
  • 2 T of any of the following spices: chili powder, chipotle powder, smoked paprika, cajun seasoning etc.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 230 C
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes (optional), and cut off the ends.
  3. Cut the potatoes into wedges or disks – the smaller the chunks, the crispier the fries will be (and the faster they will cook).
  4. In a large bowl, toss sweet potatoes with oil, salt, sugar, and spices – make sure the potatoes are evenly coated.
  5. Spread the potatoes onto a baking sheet in a single layer – bake for 15 minutes, turn over all of the pieces, and bake for another 10-15 minutes, until the potatoes are browned and crispy.
