Sweet Potato Fries - Remix

For the past...two months? my go-to snack has been sweet potato fries. They're super easy, plus I've always loved sweet potatoes. Today I tried to mix it up some. I'm really fond of contrasting flavors, so I normally put red pepper flakes on my sweet potato fries. But today I made them sweet, instead.

I was definitely thinking of this Pioneer Woman recipe (here) when I made them. I didn't go too in depth, though. I sliced my sweet potato, tossed the pieces in olive oil, laid them on the pan (lined with foil so I wouldn't have to wash it later), and sprinkled on rosemary and brown sugar. I baked them at 400 for 20 minutes. 


I hope to come up with several ways to serve (and eat) sweet potato fries this summer - an easy and healthy snack!

Love,
Scout

  1. Looks tasty! I've been overloading on oven roasted vegies with olive oil and salt. I will do this next!

  2. Yum! I usually steam my veggies on the stove. I'll definitely have to try oven roasting them - it's much easier.

  4. If you like contrasting flavors, try topping them with blue cheese (or any other sharp crumbly cheese if you don't like blue cheese), pecans, scallions, and maybe a little vinaigrette if you're feeling daring. Delish!
