Sweet Potato Fries

Do you have some uncooked sweet potatoes left over from Christmas?  Not sure what to do with them?  Make them into fries!  This is so simple and easy, I am embarrassed to say I have never made this until a few years ago when a friend introduced this to me.

You can cut them long.

 Or you can cut them short.

But, either way, you have a fast and easy side dish.  Most kids like sweet potatoes and for some reason, putting them into stick form seems to go over better with the little ones.

    I tried these last night with my family and they were a hit, apart from my 5 year old who was my prime target. Still, very delicious even made on a cookie sheet. My 2 year old yummed them down as did my husband and I. A delicious and super-easy side dish I will be making again! Thanks!
