French fries are always a hit. When made with sweet potatoes and baked in the oven, they are a more nutritious and healthy treat. This page contains roasted sweet potato fries recipe.

This is the easiest way I've found to make sweet potato (or any other type of) fries.
The Italian dressing takes care of most of the seasonings, and I do not need to add any more salt.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a jelly roll pan with aluminum foil for easy clean up.
Wash sweet potato and cut into quarter inch fries (I leave the skin on). Drizzle Italian dressing lightly over fries. The amount you use will depend on the number of potatoes you are serving. Sprinkle with seasonings (to taste). Toss lightly with your fingers to coat all the potatoes, then spread flat in one layer the cookie sheet.
Bake for 20-30 minutes to desired crispness. Serve with Ranch dressing as a dip.
