These fries are "skinny" since they bake to a crisp in the oven, without submerging the potatoes in oil or fat. They're great with a meal or as a snack. -Ann Janis, Tucson, Arizona

This recipe is great using sweet potatoes and spray olive oil on them, then bake as suggested. Very yummy for after Thanksgiving turkey sandwiches.
