Homemade Fries

I love French Fries. A lot. They are so tasty and really are the perfect addition to any meal. But also, they are often greasy. That sort of lessens the appeal of fries.

So it seemed like a good idea to figure out a way to make very tasty fries that were not greasy. If I do say so myself our first attempt was pretty much right on. Of course the fact that we made sweet potato fries helped too. Because as much as I like regular fries, I love sweet potato fries.

First up, we cut up the sweet potato into large steak fries cuts.

Then we got all of our ingredients together: black pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika. I swear, paprika makes everything taste better. And it is truly amazing what a combination of our favorite spices can do.

Next we put everything in a plastic bag along with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and shook it up, shake 'n bake style.

Once everything was mixed together the fries were put on a cookie sheet that had been sprayed with cooking spray. They were cooked at 425 degrees for 20-30 minutes (depending on desired crunchiness).

Finally we ate these taste full and grease free fries, and loved every bite. They really are the perfect addition to any meal.
