We had our last batch of leftover bean burgers last night (tear) and needed an easy side, so we baked up a batch of thick-cut sweet potato fries! Delicious!
Yum! What are these tossed in, and, uh… why are we eating them in ice-cream cups?
Um… they’re “sweet” potatoes?
I know, it’s genius. Anyway, I tossed them with coarse-ground salt, some black pepper, red pepper powder, and a little truffle oil.
Fancy! You can still taste the sweetness of the potato, which is what I like.
Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries
2 long, thin sweet potatoes
1/2 tbsp olive oil
fresh ground pepper
Preheat an oven to 400F. Cut the potatoes in wedges; I like leaving the skin on. In a bowl, toss the potatoes with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and red pepper. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes, then flip the fries and cook until nice and crispy. Remove from oven and add a bit more salt and drizzle with a touch of truffle oil for “fanciness”.Print This Recipe
