Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

That vibrant orange color isn't just for show — sweet potatoes are actually an amazing source of vitamin C, along with other daily recommended vitamins. This recipe gives them a healthy crunch by baking them, rather than frying. 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. 

Place the potato sticks in a medium-sized bowl and, using hands, toss with  the melted butter. Season with the nutmeg and salt and arrange them skin side down, 1 inch apart, on a baking sheet. Bake until outsides are crispy and insides are tender, about 20 minutes.
