Yay Summer! It’s finally here! Anyone who lives in the midwest knows what I’m talking about. I even heard that we got a few snow flurries last week end further up north. Sheesh! I can’t wait to start barbecuing and making all of my favorite summer picnic foods. With Memorial Day weekend already upon us, what better way to kick off summer than with some Sweet Potato Fries. Speaking of Memorial Day, we would like to thank all veterans for their service to our country (including my dad!) and for all the sacrifices they have made to keep us safe! Thank you!
Savory Sweet Potato Fries
We all love fries, but sometimes allergies can get in the way of enjoying this side dish. Fortunately for you, we’ve got a recipe for Sweet Potato Fries that will proudly rival anything you’ve ever had before. It’s a perfect fit with some grilled hamburgers, or steak. And it’s super easy:
3 medium or large raw sweet potatoes
3 tbsp oil (olive, sunflower, or whatever your preference)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp garlic powder
Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into long strips.
Mix spices together. Drizzle oil over fries and toss with spices until the fries are evenly coated.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 25-30 minutes, flipping them halfway. The fries should be slightly crispy, but fully cooked. Enjoy!
