Baked Sweet Potato Fries

If you have never tried sweet potato fries you have been missing out my friend! My hubby and I LOVE these and order them whenever we see them! Sweet potatoes are so good for you too and are loaded with dietary fiber, beta carotene, and vitamins A, C and B6! I am determined to incorporate more of them into my menu!
They are also awesome as chips and bake up nice and crispy! They are seriously one of my favorite veggies to eat! I especially love them with my sour horse sauce (which gets its name from the sour cream and horseradish used in it). It tastes good on anything . . . in fact tonight I was dipping baby carrots in it! (So good!)

Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Recipe by: Emily

2 large Sweet Potatoes
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Seasoning Salt
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/4 tsp Chili Powder
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Parsley
1/8 tsp Cinnamon

1. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into 1/2 inch strips. Toss the potato strips in a bowl with the oil.
2. Mix the seasonings together and sprinkle over the potato strips, tossing well to coat.
3. Spread the potato strips out evenly on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake in a 425 degree oven for about 20 minutes, stir fries and then bake for 15-20 minutes more or until lightly crisped. Enjoy with Sour Horse sauce!
