Recipe Wednesday – Sweet Potato Fries

Grow Alabama has started delivering sweet potatos again and not being a big fan of sweet potatoes I’ve been at a loss at what to do with them.  So this week I set out to make something other than sweet potato casserole and so I searched Tasty Kitchen and came up with this recipe for Sweet Potato Fries.  I made them last night and they were even tasty for me!  Charlotte thought they were too spicy though so tomorrow when I make some more since we have sweet potatoes coming out of our ears I will omit the seasoning on a few for her.  But this was a really easy recipe that didn’t require a lot of work and the fries came out really great.  And one of the best parts was that they were baked so they were a relatively good way to eat veggies. 

Sweet Potato Fries
Serves 2

2 whole sweet potatoes
3 T Olive Oil
1 t Salt
1 t Pepper
1/2 t Smoked Paprika (couldn’t find this at the grocery store so just used paprika, use less than 1/2 teaspoon!)
2 T Brown Sugar

– Preheat oven to 425
– Peel potatoes (if desired).  Cut into wedges until you get the size fry that you want.
– Put potatoes in a bowl.  Combine with other ingredients and mix thoroughly with your hands so that every wedge is covered.
– Set a wire rack on a baking sheet and spray with non-stick spray.  Lay wedges on the wire rack.  Bake for 25  minutes.  Rotate pan and put back in for 20 minutes.  (Time is approximate, cook them to whatever your desired doneness level is.)
