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!!
Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries
serves a lot!!
-2 large sweet potatoes
-2tbsp olive oil
-1/4tsp, each, paprika, salt, onion powder, chili powder, cumin
-1/8tsp, each, garlic powder and black pepper
-1/2tsp lime juice
-1/8tsp, each, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, celery salt
-Preheat oven to 450. Cut the potatoes in half, length-wise, then cut again, to make traditional “fry” shapes (check my pix or the pix on the original blogger’s page). Place the potatoes in a bowl and toss with olive oil.
-In a smaller bowl, mix all the seasonings together. Sprinkle and mix them into the potato bowl, then spread onto a baking sheet.
-Bake for 10 minutes per side (20 total). While baking, mix together all of the ingredients for the fry sauce.
