Sweet potatoes are all the rage lately huh?
Sweet potato tots at Sonic, sweet potato waffle fries at Chic-fil-a and we just recently swapped regular fries for sweet potato fries in our house. We bought the frozen bagged style a few times and then I decided we should try them homemade.
Gary made homemade griddle burgers on Sunday after church and I knew sweet potatoes would be a perfect pairing with those juicy cheeseburgers.
I used a potato peeler and took the skin off.
Then I sliced them into strips.
Honestly I wish I would have made them thicker. I think they should be steak fry sized.
After I washed, peeled and cut the sweet potatoes into strips I threw them into a large bowl. I drizzled them with olive oil and sprinkled them with spices. I used garlic salt, black pepper and paprika.
I evenly spaced them on a cookie sheet and ended up cutting to many so I added a cookie sheet.
I knew they wouldn't get wasted in our house!
I baked them in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes and then I flipped them and baked them on the other side for another 10 minutes. Finally, I sprayed them with a little butter cooking spray and put them back in for about 3 minutes.
The end result was delicious. I typically don't like burned parts on my food, but the crunchy little dark places on these were dancing in my mouth. Sweet potato fries paired with a cheeseburger = the best Sunday lunch ever!
What do you dip your sweet potato fries in?
I do ketchup. Gary is a ketchup dunker as well. Hayden is a ranch dunker and Layla just eats them plain. I think we need a recipe for a fun sauce to dip them in.
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
