I have perfected the art of the sweet potato fry. I've made sweet potato fries so many times that I have a very set formula for making them. I don't enjoy frying things, so I do mine in the oven. They're easy and tasty and go well with Cuban, Mexican and Indian food. :D
They're also good for holiday dinners. I just can't get on the "let's dump half a bag of brown sugar and some marshmallows into a pan with some sweet potatoes and maple syrup!" bandwagon. Sweet potatoes are sweet enough as is!
Step 1: Supplies!
- one large sweet potato
- sea salt (coarse)
- freshly ground black pepper, chunky
- good quality olive oil
- a peeler (optional)
- a sharp chef's knife
- a cutting board
- a large baking sheet (not pictured)
