Sweet Potato Fries at Home

I tried sweet potato fries for the first time
my sophomore year of college at a place on campus.
I liked them, but they didn't seem much healthier than
any other fries.
They were still covered with salt and grease. 
I hadn't thought much about them again,
until earlier this Spring. 
A dietetics friend of mine was telling me that sweet potatoes
are a staple food of hers. 
Feeling in a food rut after a long semester,
I decided to dig my way out by trying some different recipes. 
I must say,
after you make these homemade sweet potato fries,
you will never go back to greasy fast food joint fries again.  

1.) For my rendition of Homemade Sweet Potato Fries, you will need:

Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Mrs. Dash, Garlic Salt, Sweet Potatoes,
a baking sheet, aluminum foil, a sharp knife, and a cutting board.  

2.) Before preparing the fries, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line the
baking sheet with foil.

3.)  After washing and scrubbing the sweet potatoes thoroughly,
cut them into wedges.

4.) Drizzle a little olive oil and sprinkle some
Mrs. Dash and Garlic Salt over the wedges.
Toss the wedges a few times so the seasoning and oil is distributed.

 5.) Line the baking sheet with the wedges and place them in the heated oven.

6.) Allow the wedges to bake for 10-15 minutes.
Take the pan out of the oven and flip each of the wedges to their opposite side.
Bake for 10-15 additional minutes. 

7.) Allow the fries to cool a few minutes before serving.

8.) Finally, enjoy!

I ate dipped mine in both ketchup and Kraft 3-Cheese Ranch Lite Dressing.
To Die for.
Also, you can't go wrong with this delicious taste of Beta Carotene.
I can see myself making these again in the future.
Ha. Ha. Ha.
Do you get it?
Beta Carotene...See....

Okay maybe that is only funny to dietetics students.
