Awesome Homemade Sweet Potato Fries

One of my favorite things over the last year has been sweet potato fries.  I always order them when it's an option on the menu.  We make them at home a LOT.  They are easy, healthy, and cheap!  They are really good with burgers, brats, whatever. I love love them to snack on, and you get the satisfaction of "fries" but much healthier!  You can use any size potato, in this case we used one large and one medium potato which yielded over 2 pans of fries!  

Here's how we do it:

1.  Peel your potatoes.  I always do this, but I suppose hypothetically you could leave the skin on.

 2.  Chop into slices about the size of your pinky finger.

 3.  Put in bowl and toss with olive oil.

 4.  Sprinkle with ground pepper and sea salt.  You can toss this all together to fully coat everything.  We use this pink Himalayan salt for everything.  It is fantastic!

 5.  Place on cookie sheet.  We always use tin foil so cleanup is easier :)

 6. Bake at 425 degrees for 20-ish minutes.  Of course, this will depend on your oven.

\Sometimes they will get a little crunchy/burnt on the bottom, but personally, I LOVE that!  These are THE BEST and even keep well for leftovers.  As you can tell, they are pretty healthy as well.  You could also dress them up with other spices, Lawry's, cayenne, etc.
