If you’re anything like me, you love the convenience, and great taste of the store bought Sweet Potato Fries. Dump them on a pan and in 15-20 minutes you’ve got hot fries. Well, if you have a few extra minutes, you can easily make them from scratch. Seriously. And…they taste better. Shhhh, don’t tell anyone I said that. Anyway, I hope you give these a shot. They are super delicious, a little spicy and the garlic and fresh thyme make them fancy schmancy! Oh, they also go great with these.

4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into french fry shape

2 In a large bowl, toss the sweet potatoes with the remaining ingredients. Arrange on 2 rimmed baking sheets and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the fries are crisp. Serve immediately.
