Oven baked sweet potato fries with salt, pepper and a touch of brown sugar.
Sweet potatoes have become my new favorite potato. They are delicious and extremely good for you too, having high amounts of Vitamins A and C. And with my “no cheese” kick for lent, these babies are perfect. A little butter and brown sugar and you have a perfect side dish. However, that’s not the only way to cook these up, oven baked fries are great too. They bake up crisp on the outside, soft on the inside and with a sweet and savory outer coating of brown sugar and salt. Enjoy these “fries” with hamburgers and hotdogs or even with your oven roasted chicken. They are tasty and elegant and can be prepared with almost any main dish. Enjoy these great tasting fries and, Make the first bite count!

4-5 sweet potatoes, peeled
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 Tablespoons brown sugar

2. Cut each potato in half. Then cut each half into thirds to make potato spears.
