Sweet Potato Sticks

Another Farmer's Market FIND: Sweet Potatoes! I love these little suckers and they are so good for you! One of my co-workers calls them "veggies on steroids" because of how many vitamins they give you.

As a southern girl, I'm all about adding butter, sugar and cinnamon to my sweet potatoes whether it be baked, fried, casseroled or sweet potato pie. To mix it up a bit though I thought I would try a healtheir version. These came out truly wonderful and the flavor was still sweet but delicate.

Sweet Potatoes
Olive Oil

Peel two large sweet potatoes, cut off ends and cut in half (not lengthwise). Julienne potatoes and lay flat on baking pan. Brush with olive oil and gently salt and pepper them. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. Flip them over and bake for about 15 minutes more. (longer if you want them crispy).


  1. I make these all the time! I call them sweet potato oven fries. I also throw all the pieces in a big bowl and drizzle the oil and S&P and mix them up so every inch of the pieces get coated with oil...and it's quicker!


  2. I love these! Sweet potatoes are the best.
