Look for long, thin sweet potatoes; they make better oven fries than shorter, more squat ones.
Serves 4 (serving size: about 4 wedges)
1. Preheat oven to 400°.
2. Cut potatoes lengthwise into 1/2-inch wedges. Combine potatoes, oil, and sugar; toss to coat. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with almonds, salt, and pepper. Bake at 400° for 35 minutes or until tender and browned.
