Cajun Baked Sweet Potato Fries

There is nothing like a side of fries with almost any meal. Today’s recipe is a healthier version with oven-baked sweet potato fries with a kick of Cajun spices. You can increase the heat or decrease as you need.  Sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals and are high in anti-oxidants.  I am always looking for ways to use sweet potatoes without excess sugar.  Oven fries top the list.






You can use scrubbed unpeeled sweet potatoes or peel if you prefer.  Use a sharp kitchen knife to cut the potatoes into thin fries.  If you like thick fries better, increase the bake time to get them crispy. You probably have most of the spices in your pantry. Cut fries, mix oil and spices, toss, and bake. Easy and delicious Cajun sweet potato fries will become a family favorite.
