    Karoline Boehm goodnick's recipe for sweet potato steak fries.

    Serves 4

    Few can resist the allure of a crispy sweet potato. Fortunately for moms, they make the list of super foods with loads of vitamin A (read: good for you). This four-ingredient recipe — two of which are salt and pepper — requires minimal prep time and a hot oven. Serve plain or with a selection of dipping sauces like ranch, honey mustard, or ketchup, beside a rotisserie chicken or grilled meat.

    3large sweet potatoes, cut into long, thick wedges (about 6 pieces per sweet potato)
    3tablespoons olive oil
    Salt and pepper, to taste

    1. Set the oven at 425 degrees. Have on hand 2 rimmed baking sheets.

    2. In a large bowl, toss sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper.


    3. Spread fries out on the baking sheets, one cut side flat to the sheet; do not overlap.
