Baked Sweet Potato Crinkle Fries
We eat sweet potatoes a lot. Crinkling them is a fun way to change things up a bit! Same ol' sweet potato... snazzy new look! I used my 'crinkle cutter' kitchen gadget on tonight's sweet potatoes to give them a showy & presentable look! They cook quicker this way, and the kids seem to enjoy them more! You can get a crinkle cutter at most kitchen stores for under $10. Works well with other vegetables, too. Just a fun kitchen gadget to have on hand...
Hope you enjoy!
2 large sweet potatoes/yams, peeled and crinkled
2 tsp olive oil
spices of choice:
I used approximately 1 tsp of each:
black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder
a pinch of sea salt & a pinch of cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into thirds or halves (depending on how large the sweet potatoes are). Use your crinkle cutter to measure where to cut! My crinkle cutter yielded about a 3 inch fry. Toss crinkled sweet potatoes in olive oil and spices. Spread over a cookie sheet and cook for about 25 minutes (toss halfway through cooking time). I broiled them for an additional 5 minutes... just to get a little more crispy on the outside.
Serve and enjoy! Tasty AND ascetically appealing! ... a fun addition to any meal. Enjoy!
