Oven-Fried Sweet Potatoes
Besides being inexpensive in most parts of the country and one of the most nutritious vegetables around, sweet potatoes will last the longest, when properly stored in a cool, dark place.
4 sweet potatoes (about 2 1/2 pounds)
4 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 450°F. Peel sweet potatoes. Cut into 1/4-inch slices.
Place sweet potato slices in a large resealable plastic bag. Add oil, thyme, salt and pepper. Shake bag to coat slices with oil mixture.
Spread potato slices evenly in a single layer on 2 baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn; bake until crisp and tender, about 5 minutes longer.
Remove potatoes from baking sheets. Serve immediately.
Oven Fried Sweet Potatoes tip: These sweet potatoes will cook more quickly and more crisply in a convection oven.
