Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I love sweet potatoes. I think it's wonderful that something that delicious can be so remarkably good for you. Today I am posting sweet potato fries that I bake in the oven.

Sweet Potato Fries

3-4 medium sweet potatoes
1/2 cup butter, melted
salt
cinnamon and sugar (opt)

Peel and chop sweet potatoes into small pieces. Place in a single layer in a greased baking dish. Pour butter over them and sprinkle with salt. (You can add cinnamon and sugar, if desired, but I usually don't because I think they blend better with a meal without it). Bake at 450 for about 30 minutes. You may need to stir them about halfway through baking.
Peel and chop the sweet potatoes:
This is how they look after baking for 30 minutes. If you want them to be more crisp, bake a little longer.

Thank you for this idea! We love sweet potatoes, and we're trying to eat healthier. I'm going to try this with spray butter and Splenda. Hope you & your sweet family are doing good!
Love,

mmmmmmmmmm! These are delicious! I love sweet potatoes, and I knew I would love these. I made them for lunch today for Ashley (my 5 yr old) and me, and even she liked them! I love finding vegetables my kids will eat. She won't even touch baked sweet potatoes, but she loved these! Thanks for the idea!
