    Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
    Cut the sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch strips or wedges and toss in the oil and salt. Arrange in a single layer on a nonstick baking sheet. Place in oven for 30 minutes, turning once.

    Man, I do the same thing but use a french fry maker and I add some pepper. I overcook mine a little to crisp them up. Yams are awsome.

    Ive tried this and its kick ass!

    But I found something awesome when shopping yesterday at Wal-Mart!

    Prepackaged, organic sweet potatoe fries!

    They are in the frozen potatoes/fries section. They are precut and organic. Havent made any yet but they look awesome and were only $3 for a big bag. This saves a lot of hassle of cutting sweet potatoes...just put on a pan, season and cook!

    Dang, I totally forgot about this (this thread is over a year old). I'm going to have to pick up sweet potatoes now.

    Glad you liked'em Smeton!...oh, and they're good with some cinnamon and splenda too.
