Sweet Potatoes are a typical side dish when we have steak.  I usually just place the whole potato in the oven and bake it; however, I decided to follow yet another Max 30 recipe to make sweet potato fries.  They were delicious!

Ingredients: (Makes 4 servings at 1/2 cup each)
  • 2 (9 oz) medium sweet potatoes cut in to 1/2 in strips
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Directions:
  1. Preheat over to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place the sweet potato strips in a single layer on the baking pan.
  3. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with black pepper and cayenne pepper.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes.  Be sure to turn at about 15 minutes.
