Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I am going to keep this blog entry short and sweet, since I know I am SUPER behind in posting, I want to crank some out tonight while I have the time!

A week or two ago I ventured to make sweet potato fries for the first time ever – and they were so tasty!  I only recently started enjoying sweet potato fries (and only in restaurants or bagged from the grocery store, until now).  But I have not liked every sweet potato fry I have tried.  They are so mushy sometimes and just so sweet (obviously).  But this recipe had a great crispiness to it.  I think I’ll make sweet potato fries again, but they’re honestly just as tasty, inexpensive, and a whole lot easier to just buy a bag! 😉

This recipe came from Creme de la Crumb and I would highly recommend it if you’re looking for a new (or first) sweet potato fry recipe!  Feel free to also poke around her blog for other delicious-looking recipes!

Also, I paired it with simple pre-made hamburger patties (I have never bought the pre-made ones myself, cuz I like to mix in my own spices and marinades, but they were in the freezer), so it was a perfect pair!

Side note: I *definitely* added sriracha sauce to my fry sauce!!
