This is an easy recipe for Sweet Potato Fries.
3 large sweet potatoes or yams
Peel the sweet potatoes and slice into fries no larger than 1/4 inch thick.
Place the potatoes in a large mixing bowl.
Cover lightly with Olive Oil (Extra virgin). It's probably about 1/4 a cup, maybe a bit less than that. You don't want them to look super greasy, just lightly coated.
Add 1 teaspoon of Paprika, 1 teaspoon of onion powder, and a pinch of salt to the bowl and toss well until evenly coated.
Place the fries on a baking sheet so they are not touching each other to much. I like to line my sheet with tinfoil simply because it makes clean up 100 times easier.
3 large sweet potatoes will probably cover 2 baking sheets.
Place them in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. It is totally your preference if you preheat the oven or not. Not preheating will save some gas and will not change how the fries turn out. Some people are die hard preheaters.
After 25 minutes flip the fries over and put them back in the oven for another 25 minutes.
Every time I have made these they turn out a bit limp. Not crunchy like a brown potato fry.
I really like these fries. I think they have great flavor and, like I said, they are a nice change from the regular french fry.
However, Jess, the 5 year old boy, and I are the only ones who eat them.
The other two kids have tried them a few times and don't care for them.
The two male adults in the house don't care for them either. Even when we cooked them in bacon fat that one time.
I suggest you give them a shot but if you don't think everyone is going to like them maybe try making 1/2 a batch the first time. Yams and Sweet Potatoes are pretty inexpensive so it's a cheep side dish to try and you don't have to feel to bad if you end up feeding some of them to the dog.
Oh, and I should mention I don't like mashed sweet potatoes (the kind dad makes for holidays) and I should also mention that my dogs love these.
Ok, go enjoy! Report back what you think!
