Sweet Potato Fries


You know how they say that every so many years your taste buds change? It must be that year for me. I could never stand the smell of pumpkin, much less eat it, and now I really like it. I had never tried butternut squash because I assumed it would be like pumpkin. I tried that this year and really liked it. So I figured that sweet potatoes had to be next.

I think part of the reason why I never found sweet potatoes appealing is that they're usually in a casserole with brown sugar and marshmallows. While I like brown sugar and marshmallows on their own, combining them with a potato, regardless of the fact that its a 'sweet' potato just did not compute in my brain and sounded horrendously disgusting. I may have tried sweet potato casserole once when I was a kid, but honestly, I don't remember.

    • 4 sweet potatoes
    • 3 tbsp. olive oil
    • salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat the oven to 400.
2. Cut the sweet potatoes into "fries" trying to keep them about the same size.
3. Put the sweet potatoes in a bowl and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.
4. Transfer potatoes to a baking sheet and bake for 35-45 minutes or until the fries are soft.

Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum! I really wish I would have tried sweet potatoes before the end of November. These were absolutely delicious and I could have ate the entire plate myself! I definitely plan on making these as a side for dinner next week.
