Sweet Potato Fries

Napoleon Dynamite: "Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills." Well, not only is my son incredibly goodlooking, he's also developing excellent knife skills!

Fast-Food Lover's Fix:
Homemade Sweet Potato Fries
(serves 4)

2 large sweet potatoes (about 2 lbs), scrubbed
1 T. olive oil
2 T. low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
Cooking Spray
Kosher or sea salt

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 large baking sheets with foil.

Slice the sweet potatoes into long matchsticks about 1/4" thick. Combine the olive oil and soy sauce in a large bowl or zip lock bag. Add the sweet potatoes and toss until evenly covered. Spread them in one layer on the baking sheet, so they aren't touching. Coat with cooking spray.

Bake until the fries are golden on the outside and soft on the inside, about 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle with onion powder, garlic powder and salt. Continue baking until spices are fragrant (approximately 5 minutes) or run them under the broiler briefly.

These are great. We've also made them with cinnamon and dipped them in honey mustard.

I need to try sweet potato fries with the twins. They love french fries.....they (we) need a healthier alternative.
