Aunt Sue's Sweet Potato Fries

This delicious side is easy to make and compliments any dish, if you ask me.  My Aunt Sue served them with grilled salmon drizzled with a garlic-ginger sauce and it was all mouth watering good!  I actually made them last night to go along with our hamburgers!  See what I mean?  Her sweet potato fries can be a sophisticated "gourmet" side or it can simply replace traditional fries.  Super yum!

Preheat oven to 375*F

In a medium bowl, mix 2 tablespoons canola oil, with a heaping teaspoon of minced garlic (I use the kind from a jar), and salt and pepper.

Next, peel 4-6 sweet potatoes and cut them into long skinny wedges.  Toss potatoes in oil mixture, just enough to coat them.  Bake fries on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Bake for 20 minutes, then flip them and cook for another 20 minutes.
