    Default sweet potato fries

    Does anyone make sweet potato fries for their LO's?
    T LOVES LOVES LOVES sweet potato, and i'd like for him to try to get some practice with feeding himself (we spoon feed, but I also give him little pieces of foods that i'm eating...but I have to feed him)...
    Any suggestions on how to do it? I've never made sweet potato fries in the oven before, and i'm definitely not deep frying them! ....

    I do it ALLLLLL the time, it's one of D's faves. I just cut them in wedges- on the thinner side- drizzle in olive oil and a touch of salt, toss them with my hands and put them in the oven at about 350 until they look done. Usually takes around 20 minutes.
