Sweet potatoes are pretty much my new favorite food. They make absolutely delicious fries and even offer some serious nutrition including Vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and beta-carotene (as much as carrots!). This recipe comes from Food Network and is super easy to make.
I had purchased a big organic sweet potato from my local health store so I washed it (but didn’t peel it) and cut it up into fry size pieces. Next, I spread the fries evenly on a baking sheet and added 1 Tbsp oil (I have also used this same amount of bacon fat from local pastured bacon- so I know it’s good quality) and the fries still turned out really good.
I used my hands to stir the fries and make sure they were all covered with the oil and then sprinkled salt and pepper on liberally. I baked the fries at 400 degrees for ten minutes, gave them a good mix with a spatula, and then baked them for another 10 minutes. You can serve the fries with ketchup or maybe even a sour cream dipping sauce – yum!
