Ina Garten's Baked Sweet Potato "Fries"


Sweet potatoes have long been one of my favorite veggies - so yummy, especially as potato chips or French fries.  This Ina Garten recipe is a baked version of sweet potato steak fries, or potato wedges.  It's super simple to put together - your oven is pretty much doing all the work, haha.  Just be sure to keep an eye on it so the sides crisp up evenly and they don't burn.  

These "fries" were fan-friggin-tastic.  Brown sugar is a common ingredient in sweet potato recipes, and with good reason- such a tasty combination!  These are a great side dish, or even just a meal on their own if you choose to eat a ton, like I do.  Crisp on the edges, soft and pillowy innards, not mealy at all.  I'm getting hungry just writing about this, haha!

  1. I usually do something like this with veggies (zucchini, onion, red bell pepper, carrots, potato) minus the sugar.
