- Cooking spray
- 6 sweet potatoes
- 3 Tbs canola oil
- 1 tsp salt
- Pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
- Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
- Peel the sweet potatoes, and cut them into 1⁄2-inch french fries.
- Place potatoes in a large resealable plastic bag, and add oil, salt, and cayenne pepper, if desired. Secure the bag, and shake well until potatoes are coated with oil.
- Arrange potatoes on the baking sheet, and bake for 25 minutes. Turn with a spatula and bake another 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden. Watch carefully, as thinner fries may not take quite as long.
- Transfer fries to a serving platter. Taste, and add a little extra salt, if necessary.
