I have a not so secret love affair with sweet potato fries. They are one of my favorite not-so-guilty pleasures. Over the past few months I have been experimenting, making them crispier and better! The result, a gloriously crispy exterior with a soft and fluffy interior. They are little bits of orange perfection!

Ok enough rambling, here is how you do it.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Step 2: Prep a baking sheet (little non-stick spray or a silicone mat to prevent sticking!).

Step 3: Cut the sweet potatoes into about half inch fries. I typically cut each potato in half, make slices, then cut the slices in half. The result, something like this.

Step 5: Layer on the baking sheet. Leave room between the fries to allow for even cooking.

The end result, the perfect just-guilty enough addition to dinner!
