Here is a cheap and easy recipe for baked sweet potato fries. They have all the flavor of deep fried sweet potato fries you get in restaurants, minus (most of) the fat. In fact, they’re quite healthy. I sometimes make these for a late-night snack. They’re also a great side dish or appetizer, served with ranch dressing or chipotle ketchup.
A popular burger joint here in St. Paul (The Nook) dusts their sweet potato fries lightly with cinnamon-sugar. It adds a subtle sweetness that isn’t overpowering. Give it a go if you’re looking for a unique spin on sweet potato fries!

I like my sweet potato fries on the crispy side, so I slice my fries quite thin and bake until crisp. If you like them softer, cut them a little thicker and don't bake them quite as long. I estimate about one sweet potato per person, which equals less than $1 per serving.
2 sweet potatoes (I leave mine unpeeled)
2 tablespoons olive oil
Pinch of fine grain sea salt
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 400F. Slice sweet potatoes into thin strips. In a mixing bowl, toss potato strips with olive oil and spices. Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes. After fries have baked, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, if desired.
