Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, these fries are a fabulous side dish or snack. Or enjoy them for breakfast with a poached egg on top of each serving on a weekend morning.

Ingredients

sugar

1½ Tbsp

ground cinnamon

1 tsp

uncooked sweet potato(es)

2 pound(s), (two 1-lb potatoes)

cooking spray

2 spray(s)

table salt

½ tsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Peel potatoes and cut them lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices; cut each slice into 1/2-inch-thick sticks (you should have 48 fries). Spread fries on prepared pan so they don’t overlap or touch; coat with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.
  3. Bake fries for 20 minutes; remove from oven, coat with cooking spray and sprinkle half of sugar mixture over top. Flip fries, coat with cooking spray and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture; bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, toss well and bake until brown and tender, about 5 minutes more. Transfer pan to a wire rack and cool for a few minutes. Yields 8 fries per serving.
