Sweet Potato Fries

Not too surprisingly we've gotten off the menu plan a bit more.  DH actually cooked tonight -- he made pork loin roast (seasoned with coriander & all spice...quite nice) and then in true DH fashion decided to experiment and made carrot & roasted pepper pancakes.  He claims to not really know what the recipe was, but it was darn tasty.

In the meantime, we'll be having the Cuban Sandwiches & sweet potato fries in honor of that:

Sweet Potato Fries

2-3 large sweet potatoes, cleaned & peeled
several T olive oil
seasoning of your choice
  1. Preheat oven to 450
  2. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil & lightly grease with olive/canola oil
  3. Prep your sweet potatoes.  You can cut them by hand (or make wedges if you prefer) or use a french fry cutter. 
  4. Microwave them in a large microwave safe bowl/dish for 6-8 min (depending on how powerful your micro is).
  5. Arrange them neatly on the prepared baking sheet and use a pastry brush to liberally brush them with olive oil. 
  6. Sprinkle with your choice of seasoning.  Sometimes we'll do cinnamon-sugar or I'm partial to Tony Cachere's for a more savory dish. 
  7. Alternately you could toss the fries, oil, and seasoning in a plastic bag.
  8. Bake in the oven for 15-20 min.  Depending on how thick they are & how crispy you like them you might need a few extra minutes.
