Have you ever seen one of those blogs about cooking? There are several out there that speak fondly and cleverly about food while boasting recipes with step by step directions and pictures. I am always impressed by these blogs and I have often wished I had a blog about food, and so tonight I do.

I think that everyone out there needs to know about this recipe. I thought about keeping it a secret and not sharing it with anyone. That way, I could make it when guests come over and dazzle them with my culinary expertise. They would have no idea how easy it is. But this recipe was shared with me, so I suppose I should stop thinking selfishly and share it with you.

So hesitantly, I am about to teach you how to make sweet potato fries.

Begin with either one or two large sweet potatoes. This will make enough fries to feed 2-4 people.

Note: These vegetables are loaded with vitamins A and C. Clearly, they have never been known for their appearance.

Peel potato(s) and cut into strips. They are rather difficult to cut because they are so hard and oddly shaped. They will also dull your knife. However, the gastronomical results are worth it.

Coat lightly with olive oil (extra virgin, cold pressed is the best). Sprinkle with kosher salt and ground pepper and spread out on cookie sheet.

Bake at 425 for 20 minutes or so and you will be rewarded with the best kept secret out there. So easy, so healthy, sooooo yummy! Paired below with spinach and feta turkey burgers on whole wheat english muffins.

¡Buen Provecho!


  1. One of my favorite things to make...and eat!

  2. I love sweet potato fries! I have to try this!

  3. Yum! I can't wait to try them. Now on the opposite end of the spectrum, you need to share that brownie recipe of yours! ;)

  4. Beautiful presentation Erin!! You should keep it going - - I personally am waiting for your grilled cheese recipe. What are you waiting for? : )

  5. I am a witness !!! Erin's sweet potato fries are deliciosas !!!

    ...and I am very excited that it seems that even though I stink at cooking, I SHOULD be able to handle it.
    I bet they won't be as tastey as yours.
