Oven-Roasted Sweet Potatoes
- Servings : 8-10
This is a tasty alternative to traditional fries.
- 4 pounds sweet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Peel the sweet potatoes, if you prefer, and cut into wedges lengthwise. Place the wedges in a bowl.
Mix the oil and salt, and pour over the potato wedges. Toss all together until the wedges are evenly coated.
Spread the wedges on a baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes. Flip them over and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes until they are tender and browned.
