Baked Sweet Potato Fries
2 medium sweet potatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp light brown sugar
1/2 tsp kosher salt + extra for sprinkling
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Preheat over to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil greased with cooking spray.
Halve the sweet potatoes and cut each half into long spears. Soak in cold water 20-30 minutes and pat dry. In a bowl, mix oil, sugar, salt and pepper. Toss potatoes in mixture and put on baking sheet with plenty of space. (Otherwise the fries steam each other and are not crispy.) Bake for 15 minutes, flip and bake another 5 to 10 minutes until lightly browned. Sprinkle lightly with salt and enjoy!
