Our Favorite Sides - Oven-roasted Sweet Potato Fries

From time to time, Ryan and I really want something sweet/salty/spicy, all in one.  And healthy to boot!  So these Sweet Potato Fries definitely do that trick.  I'm sure you could season however you want, but this is our preferred flavor.
1 tsp Lawry's Seasoning Salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 tsp chili powder
2 large sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
3 Tbsp E.V.O.O.
Some people may prefer their sweet potatoes cute into fries, however, I find it much easier to use my Pampered Chef Crinkle Cutter and therefore make slices, rather than fries.

Preheat the over to 425 degrees F.  In a small bowl, combine seasonings, set aside.  In a large bowl, toss sweet potatoes with Olive Oil, sprinkle with seasoning mixture and toss to coat. 

 On a pan (I find it easier and less messy to use a pan with sides) sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, arrange potatoes evenly around the pan.
Roast, turning once in the middle, for 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender and golden.  Easy as that! 

Simple huh? Our simple side was served with our simple evening meal...steamed asparagus and a Johnsonville Turkey with Cheddar Brat (only 120 cals!) on a slice of Sara Lee's Delightful Wheat Bread! 
What are some simple sides that you enjoy cooking?  Any recipes you think I should try out and maybe feature on my blog?! :)
