3 lb sweet potatoes, scrubbed clean
olive oil for drizzling
Kosher sale and freshly ground black pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F and line a rimmed sheet pan with foil.

  4. Spread the fries on the lined sheet pan. Roast until brown and crispy on the bottoms. 10 to 20 minutes. Watch carefully to be sure they are crispy.
  5. Flip all the fries and return them to the oven to roast until they are brown and crispy, another 10 to 20 minutes. Watch carefully to be sure they are crispy.
  6. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
