These sweet potato fries are sure to be a hit with your youngsters. My two cute kidlets can't get enough of these. I also don't feel so bad feeding these fries to them because they are baked and not fried. These fries are lightly coated with olive oil and then are lightly coated with two different seasonings. This is definitely a side dish you don't have to feel guilty about serving to your family!!! These fries go great with steaks, burgers, sandwiches or even a side dish for a special occasion such as Thanks giving!! These would also be a yummy after school snack!
Savory Sweet Potato Fries
recipe from "Jamie cooks it Up!"
5 small yams ( sweet potatoes are whitish in color on the inside you want the lovely yellow colored yams for this recipe.)
3 T. Olive oil, or extra virgin
2 t. Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 t. Johnny's Seasoning Salt
Peel your yams, and cut them into nice thin slices. Not too thin or thick. Just eyeball it. You want them uniform so they will all cook evenly. Place into a bowl and Drizzle with olive oil and coat with seasonings. Toss with your hands until all pieces of yams are coated with seasonings and olive oil. Place fries on two greased cookie sheets. Fries should not touch.. this will help all fries to bake evenly. Place cookie sheets in oven and Bake in a 400 degree oven for 8 minutes. After those 8 minutes are up take cookie sheets from oven and turn fries over with spatula and place back into oven for and additional 8 minutes. This helps the fries to cook evenly.
1/3 c. Miracle Whip
1/3 c. Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce (this is my favorite BBQ Sauce- you won't be disappointed in using this even if it is a little more pricey at the grocery store)
Mix until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to use. Serve with Sweet Potato Fries.
