Baked Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

  1. The initial procedure of cutting the sweet potatoes into strips remains the same.
  2. Apply some vegetable oil over the strips. Calorie-conscious people can mind not to use more oil or prefer Olive oil which is healthier.
  3. Sprinkle some seasoning agents like salt, pepper and garlic as per the choice. You may also spread some cheese over the fries before placing them in the oven to be baked.
  4. Lay the seasoned fries on a baking sheet. Bake for around 15 to 20 minutes at 400 degrees. If one prefers crispier fries then bake for a few minutes further.
  5. Serve hot along with some tomato or any spicy sauce.

Baked fries are more preferable than the ones fried in vegetable oil because of the lesser use of oil. They can also be called as 'Oven fried sweet potatoes' and keep away excess oil and do not add to the calories.
