We made these this weekend, and Rowan devoured them. He has gotten great at yelling “more, more! (mo! mo!)” which is exciting. He is becoming this little human with very STRONG opinions which is both cute and a little scary.
These are fabulous for anyone at anytime. I think they would make a good first food for a baby if you cut them into small cubes and left out the salt.
Baked Sweet Potato Pie Fries
Olive oil or a vegetable oil of your choice
Sweet Potato Pie Seasoning:
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven 425 degrees.
Make the seasoning by mixing salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl to combine. Set aside.
Line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper. Peel and slice sweet potatoes into strips. Lay them in an even layer on the baking sheet. Do not overcrowd. Toss the fries in the oil to coat. Sprinkle the fries with seasoning and toss again. There will be seasoning left over to use another time.
Bake until fries are tender and golden, about 20 minutes. Half way through the baking time, flip the fries, so they bake evenly. Keep an eye on your fries, as oven times will vary. It really depends on how hot your oven gets. Let cool about 10-15 minutes before eating.
