Recipes Made Simple: No fuss Cinnamon Sweet Potato Fries


As part of my Recipes Made Simple Cooking Guide, one of my favorite sides to use are sweet potatoes.  This recipe is very simple.  All you will need is 1 large sweet potato, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and cooking spray.

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400-degrees
  • Peel potato and cut into fries
  • Spread fries onto a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.
  • Evenly coat the fries with 1 tablespoon of cinnamon.
  • Place into the oven and cook until tender usually 15-20 minutes depending on how thick you cut your fries.

Optional: once tender, spray the fries one more time and place in the broiler on low for 2 minutes. This will give the fries a little extra crisp.
