  1. How to Make Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

  2. 1) slice your sweet potato, peeled or not (the peel contains much of the vitamins and fiber), into sticks, wedges, or quarters, then slices - ensure they are relatively even, so that they cook evenly. In a bowl, toss them with a drizzle of canola or other mild vegetable oil.

  3. 2) drizzle some of the oil onto a heavy rimmed cookie sheet and put it in the oven. Turn the oven on to 450F.

  4. 3) when the oven is hot, take the pan out and carefully spread out the sweet potatoes on it - the combination of hot pan and hot oil will keep the fries from sticking. Make sure that the pan isn't too crowded, or they will steam instead of browning properly.

  5. 20 minutes or so (depending on the thickness of the fries and how hot your oven is), stirring once or twice, until golden. Sprinkle with coarse salt and serve immediately.
