However, I'm not gonna lie: I totally forgot about those two little cuts after I dug into the amazing sweet potato fries that I turned that stubborn potato into.
BTW, these making these sweet potato fries is easy peasy.
If you don't count the cutting step, that is. Once you get past that, it's smooth sailing.
Simply throw all your "fries" into a bowl and toss them with some EVOO.
Then dump them on a baking sheet lined with greased foil and salt those puppies with as little or as much salt as you want.
FYI: One (very large) sweet potato made ALL of those fries!
Then bake at 375 for about 20 minutes. That's it!
I gobbled up this plate (x2) for lunch along with a piece of leftover salmon from last night.
At first I thought, "OMG. I just ate half a pan of sweet potato fries! That's kind of a lot!" Then I realized that in reality, that really only equates to eating a half of a sweet potato. Not so bad when you look at it that way ;)
Munched on this after lunch to cure my sweet tooth:
Have you ever made fries with vegetables other than potatoes? I've seen people make parsnip fries and eggplant fries in their blogs, but I have yet to try it!
