Sweet Potato Slices/Cubes, Baked and Seasoned (V)

In Cubes
In Slices
These are good when everyone else is having fries, I used to do this with regular potatoes until I started eating more sweet potatoes. This is based on a Betty Crocker recipe.

3-4 servings:

1 large sweet potato or 2 medium (= to about 3 med reg. potatoes)
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar, or dry sub.
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp ground mustard
1/4 tsp garlic powder

-Mix seasonings together, (sometimes I just make a big batch and put it in a shaker).

-Scrub potatoes gently but do not peel, cut into about 1/4 inch rounds, thinner if you like them more crispy,or 1/2 inch cubes. I tried doing this in fry shapes once but the potatoes got pretty soft and didn't want to stay together so the rounds and cubes work better.

-Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

-Spread out potatoes in a single layer, sprinkle with seasonings, flip and sprinkle with more seasonings if you want it on both sides.

-Bake at 425 degrees 15-20 mins or until dark and desired crispiness,or you can pierce with a fork, flip carefully half way through cooking time.
