Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes Fries
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into strips ($1.25)
2 Tablespoons vegetable or canola oil ($.10)
1 Tablespoon brown sugar ($.03)
1 teaspoon cinnamon ($.05)
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly grease with cooking spray.
Wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Cut into ¼” thick strips. Rinse the sweet potatoes strips and pat dry with a towel.
Place the strips into a large bowl and toss with oil, brown sugar, cinnamon and a few dashes of salt and pepper.
Place the sweet potato strips onto the foil lined baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the fries from the oven and turn with a spatula. Return to oven and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and have reached desired crispiness.
Serve Cinnamon Sweet Potato Fries as a lunch side dish.
Makes 4 to 6 side dish servings.
Frugal Fact: Sweet potatoes can last as long as a month in your cupboard if stored in a dry, cool place, so grab a few extra when you see them on sale for $.79/lb or less.
