Have you tried Sweet Potato Fries? I had not tried them. I know, gasp! Ha ha! So many times I have been tempted to order up a batch when we were out to eat. I love sweet potatoes. In the past I have always thought of sweet potatoes during the holidays. Yesterday I decided to give a try at making Sweet Potato Fries at home. How difficult could it be? Exactly what I was thinking. Quite simple actually.
Sweet Potato Fries
Sweet Potato Fries are not cheap when purchasing them from a restaurant. I figured I could buy a couple sweet potatoes at Kroger ($2) and toss them in the oven and save a few bucks. Plus this way… the whole family got to give Sweet Potato Fries a try.
2 lb Sweet Potatoes
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1/8 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Pepper
1/8 tsp Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp Paprika
Preheat oven to 450.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut sweet potatoes into 1/4″ fries.
Toss fries in olive oil to coat.
Spread fries out on prepared baking sheet.
Cook 20 minutes turning occasionally or until fries are browned.
If you have yet to try Sweet Potato Fries be sure to give this recipe a try. They were very simple and very tasty. I look forward to making them up with some hamburgers and dogs. Or maybe even whip up a batch to go with some CopyCat Chick-fil-a. Plus, I may have to try an order next time we eat out.
