Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Get your baking sheet ready.
Wash and peel sweet potatoes.
Cut sweet potatoes into small sticks. These are about 1/4 inch.
Place sweet potatoes in a bowl and microwave for 3 minutes. This gets the cooking started so you don't have to bake them as long.
Drizzle olive oil over potatoes and add salt and thyme leaves. Stir well then place on a baking sheet.
Place in oven and bake about 25 minutes. Or until the fries are soft inside and crispy out.
Enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce.
