Baked Sweet Potato Fries

You know what I love about spring? Yard sales.

Now you may be thinking this is completely old-ladyish of me. And that may be true. But it may also just be really smart/cool of me, too.

I remember going to yard sales with my grandma when I was a kid. I loved it. I would scour the tables full of musty clothes, one by one, until I found the perfect treasure. I still remember my first purchase from when I was five or six years old. It was a jean mini skirt that I got for fifty cents. That’s right, just two quarters, people.

I’ve always loved good deals.

Want a good snack deal? How about baked sweet potato fries?

All of these fries came from one big sweet potato. Yum.

This recipe comes from Joy the Baker, who I pretty much trust with my food life. As soon as I saw these, I knew I had to make them.

This was the first time I made any type of fries, and they turned out great. Tasted delicious. Easy prep work. Win win.

The hardest part is thinly slicing the sweet potatoes, which are awfully difficult to slice. I recommend an extremely thick knife and a strong arm. Be careful!
