Crispy Baked Sweet Tater Fries
Crispy, baked sweet potato fries! These are fabulous. The taters are sweet, the outer coating is spicy and sweet potatoes are some of the healthiest potatoes you can eat.
Recipe Notes

Wash & slice sweet potatoes in 1/4 inch wide sticks.  Soak sliced potatoes in a bowl of cold water for an hour.  Pour out the water, rinse & pat dry.  Line 2 baking sheets with foil, parchment, or something that won’t stick to the potatoes. Spray with non-stick spray.

Melt a stick of butter in large bowl or pan.  Add salt, chili powder and pepper to melted butter & set aside.

Place 1/2 of your (patted dry) potato sticks into a giant zipper top bag and sprinkle in 1 tbsp starch.  Shake it all up and dump your starched potato sticks into the bowl of seasoned butter.  Toss them around in the butter mixture to coat & arrange them in a single layer on one of the baking sheets.

Next bag & starch the other half of the potato sticks, then toss them in the butter mixture & arrange on the second baking sheet.

Bake in 425 degree oven for 15 mintues.  Put some space between the 2 sheets – you want everyone to have room to crisp up.

After 15 mintues, flip all the taters over & bake another 10 mintues (total baking time: 25 mintues).

Once they are done, remove from the oven and let cool slightly.  Add more salt to taste.  Serve warm, not hot.  This will make them crispier.

I think the best sauce for sweet potato fries is a simple Russian Dressing.  Your favorite mayo with a little ketchup stirred in.  Yum!
