Restaurant Style Sweet Potato Fries

Print Friendly

I’ve been on a quest to create the best sweet potato fries recipe. It’s been a long, arduous task. I’ve gone through many soggy fries, watching them hang limply as I lifted them off the pan. They stared back at me, sadly drooping in my hand. 

But finally, finally it happened. I went to the kitchen with new resolve. I took control of that sweet potato. I smoothly peeled off its skin. And then a masterpiece was created. Sweet potato fries that were so flavorful, so tasty, they were Restaurant Style Sweet Potato Fries. This was no home-cooked failure. It was as if I could open up my front window, place these in a little basket, and yell for all the world to hear “Get your fries here! Hot sweet potato fries here!”

Here, friends, is the recipe. You can thank me later.

    I can’t think of any way to ask this without coming off as someone wearing their panties too tight but I am honestly looking for clarity — the picture looks like yams. Yams are orange -ish , sweet potatoes are white-ish. I honestly want to get the most healthy yet delish hit from these because I am constantly working to convince hubby and kids that healthy is delicious. So, at the risk of sounding totally type-A, over-controlling perfectionist…..ladies, are we using yams (orange) or sweet potatoes (white)??
