Yeay! I finally have a sweet potato fries recipe I can share with you! I made sweet potato fries before but all of the methods I used failed. Even though the flavor was delicious, the potatoes always turned out soggy. Not something I could be proud of showing on my blog. Even though these are not super crispy, like the fried version (who wants those anyway?), they pass my firmness standard for a potato fry.
The Sweet potatoes should be a staple food in every house due to its nutrition content. It is one of the best vegetables you can eat! They’re loaded with carotenoids, vitamin C, potassium and fiber.
Yes, fries can be part of your healthful diet. This broiled sweet potato version is certain to perk up your taste buds.
Makes 2 serving
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch-wide sticks
1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
Preheat broiler on high with oven rack 6-8 inches from the heating element. Use a broiler pan or a roast rack to allow the air to circulate around the potato.
Toss sweet potato sticks with all of the ingredients until coated.
Place sweet potato sticks in a single layer on the rack (see photo below) making sure they don’t touch each other. Broil until sweet potato sticks are tender and lightly browned, about 12 minute. Serve fries while hot.
