Rosemary Sweet Potato Fries

I'm not crazy about french fries. I could totally live without them and never give it another thought. That being said I absolutely adore sweet potato fries. They're sweet, salty and so good they don't need ketchup to be eaten.
What you need:
  • sweet potato (1 large potato per 2 people)
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil per potato
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons chopped rosemary, fresh or dried
What you do:
Peel sweet potato and cut into your favorite fry shape.

Put cut potatoes into a zip-lock bag. Pour in a few tablespoons of olive oil in bag and toss around to completely cover potatoes in oil.

Add salt, pepper and rosemary to the bag and toss again, distributing the spices evenly.

Dump the potatoes on a baking sheet.

The trick to getting these fry guys crispy is to make sure they don't touch each other. So line them up neatly with out letting them touch.

Place potatoes in an oven preheated to 450 degrees. Bake for about 15 minutes then flip fries making sure they still are NOT TOUCHING each other. Bake for another 15 minutes or until they are crispy and have some caramelized edges.
 Sweet Potato Perfection!
