Before You Get Started….
-Slice the potatoes as evenly as you can. You don’t want some getting burnt and others still soft.
-Use Parchment Paper, as it will be easiest to flip the fries half way through.
-If you want crispy, slice them thin. If you want soft, cut large chunks.
-Plan on roughly one sweet potato per person
-Don’t roast them too close together! Leave enough space between the fries and use a second tray if you have to.
-Preheat Oven to 400, then slice your sweet potatoes into fry shaped pieces.
-Place the fries into a large mixing bowl or large plastic bag. Cover the potatoes evenly with a few TBSP of olive oil.
-Prepare a spice mix of sea salt, pepper, and cumin. If you want spicy, go with salt, pepper, and paprika/cayenne. You’ll want enough of spice mix to lightly cover all the fries. Add it to the bowl (or bag) and mix around. Save a little bit of the spice mixture to sprinkle on after you layer the baking tray.
-Spread evenly on one or two baking trays lined with parchment paper. Lightly sprinkle the remaining seasoning.
-Place in oven and carefully turn after 15-20 minutes. Wait for the bottoms to start to show crisp.
-Roast for another 15-20 minutes, checking towards the end for desired crisp.
