Nom! Nom! Nom! - Sweet Potato French Fries

Lately I've been buying sweet potatoes and cooking awesome french fries! It is such a fast and easy recipe to whip up as a side dish and it looks very impressive. Perfect for entertaining, I guarantee your guests will love them! ;)





sweet potatoes (I cut up one per person)
olive oil

1. Use a really sharp knife and cut into thin strips (I personally love them really crispy, so the thinner the better!)
2. Put them in a large bowl and add a tablespoon or so of olive oil. You want the potatoes to be covered, but not drenched.
3. Add salt, pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon to taste.
4. Lay out on a cookie sheet covered in tin foil coated in PAM, and put in the oven at 350. They take at least 20 minutes, sometimes longer depending on how crispy you make them.

Thats it, easy-peazy! ;) Serve hot and enjoy!


Don't forget to switch it up and use regular potatoes for french fries by following all of the steps above with only olive oil, salt and pepper!

I LOVE sweet potato fries. I'll have to try out this recipe! There's an organic fast food place in Berkeley that makes sweet potato fries with hot sauce to dip them in. Sohohohoo good!

I love making these so much. I like to have them just as a snack on their own. They're great with greek seasoning and then dipped into a tzatziki sauce.
