Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Well, the chicken for this meal didn't turn out as exciting as I thought. So, I won't post that recipe. The sweet potato fries were awesome! They came for Paula Deen and she know how to do everything right when it comes to southern food :) It was the best part of the meal. It was also a good way for my girls to get excited about sweet potatoes. Enjoy!


House Seasoning:

* 1 cup salt
* 1/4 cup black pepper
* 1/4 cup garlic powder
* Olive Oil, for tossing
* 5 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch long slices, then 1/4-wide inch strips, using a crinkle cut knife
* Oil
* 1 tablespoon House Seasoning
* 1/2 teaspoon paprika

For the House Seasoning:


Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Line a sheet tray with parchment. In a large bowl toss sweet potatoes with just enough oil to coat. Sprinkle with House Seasoning and paprika. Spread sweet potatoes in single layer on prepared baking sheet, being sure not to overcrowd. Bake until sweet potatoes are tender and golden brown, turning occasionally, about 20 minutes. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
