Ingredients

  • 2-3 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 T. cornstarch
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary (or more, to taste)

Instructions

  1. Cut off the pointed ends of the sweet potatoes.
  2. Peel the potatoes using a vegetable peeler and slice them lengthwise into 1/2" sections. Then cut them into even pieces, about 1/2" thick and about 3 -4" long.
  3. Put them in a bowl and sprinkle the fries with the cornstarch. Toss them around to coat them evenly.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat.
  5. Spread the fries out in a single layer onto a baking sheet that has been drizzled with olive oil. Sprinkle lightlywith salt and pepper and dried rosemary (to taste.)
  6. Space them evenly so that they are not touching each other. This way, they will get crispy. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes. Using a metal spatula, carefully turn the fries over. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until slightly browned and crispy!

    I like to pre prepare or make meals on Sunday… Can I cut these up before hand so I can toss in oven when I get home. If so should I put them in water over night?
