3 TBSP Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper (To Taste)

Chives (Optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise into ¼ inch to ½ inch thick strips.  In a bowl, toss the sweet potato strips with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper (to taste).  On a baking sheet, arrange the sweet potatoes in a single layer and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.  Turn the potatoes and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.  Garnish with chives and serve.

*Johnna’s tip:  Love these as a side dish especially when I’m craving fries.  Serve with Greek yogurt or plain ole ketchup alongside your favorite burger or steak.
