Fourth Of July Recipe- Sweet Potato Fries




Good evening! I hope everyone is ready to enjoy a long weekend! As soon as I publish this post we’re heading downtown on bicycles for pizza at flatbreads! Here’s a great recipe if you’re looking for something different to have with your BBQ dinners this weekend! Since I started making these I have not been able to have a hamburger without them. They’re so good. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do 🙂

  1. 1 normal sized sweet potato
  2. 1.5 TBS olive oil
  3. 1 tsp smoked paprika
  4. 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  5. 1/2 tsp onion powder
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Chop up your sweet potato into thin fry-like slices. I like to have some variety in the thickness.
  3. Put the fries into a bowl.
  4. Coat with the olive oil and toss to cover the fries.
  5. Add the spices and toss the fries again to coat.
  6. Sprinkle generously with sea salt and toss again.
  7. Arrange fries on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Space them out so they're not touching.
  8. Bake at 400 degrees for about 10-12 minutes and then check to see if the bottom is browned.
  9. When the bottoms are browned (almost burnt!) flip the fries and cook for another 10 minutes or so.
  1. This recipe is using one sweet potato and is enough fries for two people. You can double the recipe but make sure you still have space between the fries on the pan otherwise they will be soggy. Use two baking sheets :)
  2. * I know I've talked about smoked paprika before but don't be stingy with it. Trader Joe's Smoked Paprika is terrible. There's a reason why it's only 1.99. Spend the 6-8 bucks and get some good stuff. :)
