This is a dish which we continue to enjoy regularly in the States - in fact, I just made it for supper last night! When we lived in W. Africa, we couldn't get regular potatoes, but we could get sweet potatoes at certain times of the year. Boy did we enjoy them! Baked fries is my favorite way to make them.

 

The Method:

 

Wash & peel your potatoes. Pat dry. Cut into wedges or long fries. Spread on a baking tray in a single layer. Sprinkle with olive oil, melted butter, or whatever you have available. Then sprinle generously with seasonings of your choice. Just salt and pepper is enough! But you might also like to try -

garlic powder

onion powder

cumin

paprika

curry powder

chili powder

Last night, I used a light sprinkle of cumin and curry powder and a generous sprinkle of salt and garlic powder. They were delicious!

 

OR for a sweeter snack, sprinkle with a cinnamon-sugar mixture after removing from the oven!

 

BAKE at 400F for 30-45 minutes (depending on the thickness of your fries). Serve hot, with ketchup if desired. My whole family loves these.

 

 

A fact about sweet potatoes that you might not know - they are a great starch for diabetics, weight loss programs, or anyone who is trying to avoid the blood-sugar spikes usually caused by sugar & starch. So you can enjoy them with a clear conscience! :-)

  • These sound yummy! We can get potatoes here year-round, but sweet potatoes are seasonal. I think they've gone completely out of season for now, but this gives me motivation to check around just in case they're not quite all the way out of season yet. Otherwise I'll have to file this idea away until they come back in season.

  • You can make regular potatoes this way, too - but they're not nearly as good as sweet potatoes in my opinion. :)

About this famous and common work different writers describe in custom writing about this. For this reason many things introduce like diapers, milk pack, cereal and other thing introduce for easiness.
