    these are soooo easy to make and my LO cant get enough of them! and works for normal potatos too

    ing:
    *salt
    *pepper
    *cooking oil
    *1 sweet potato (feeds 1-2 people, add more as needed)
    *chilli powder (optional)

    prep:
    *preheat oven to 450F/230C/gas mark 8
    *wash potatos and peel
    *slice potatos into finger size pieces or wedges, make them about half an *inch wide.
    *put 1/3cup oil in ziplock bag with small amount of salt and pepper (and chilli powder)
    *add potato pieces, seal and shake well!

    cook:
    *individually place potato pieces onto tray (dont tip bag out or you'll end up with far too much oil on the tray!)
    *cook middle shelf 10-15 minutes (till brownish)
    *flip fries/wedges
    *cook another 10-15 minutes

    enjoy!!!

    The monkey loves sweet potato fries too! I usually substitute salt with a little garlic powder and paprika instead of chili powder though so it's a little more baby friendly.

    i never normally cook with salt but with these i use just a pinch. Lo doesnt seem to mind the chilli powder but i use a very small amount of it for his (and lots for me and DH!)
