Cook Time: 30 minutes Difficulty: Easy
For years, my Southern mother-in-law tried to incorporate sweet potato casserole into our Thanksgiving and Easter feasts, and every year my family, including my hubby, would politely and inconspicuously push the sweet potato casserole off to the side of their plate. Sneaky family;)
I actually liked the casserole (score one for the daughter-in-law:). My husband actually said, "There's no way you will get me to like sweet potatoes". Well friends, I LOVE a good challenge like the next person, so guess who won?
I was on a mission, sweet potatoes or bust, so I took a leap of faith again (I often do that with my family and cooking), and made a savory version of this healthy root vegetable...baked sweet potato fries! I used oil, Cherchies® Garlic Seasoning, Thyme, and Rosemary. Delicious!
I was shocked...the fries were devoured by everyone, including dear hubby:) We now have these fries at least once a week. So, make these easy, tasty, savory fries for your family today! Your family will ask for seconds!
- 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/2 inch wedges
- 2 Tablespoons oil (we tested with Olive Oil)
- Cherchies® Garlic Seasoning to coat (can substitute Cherchies® Garlic "n Herbs Seasoning Blend)
- 1/2 teaspoon (tsp) pepper
- 1 teaspoon (tsp) Thyme
- 1 teaspoon (tsp) Rosemary
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Wash the potatoes with a vegetable brush and warm water. Peel the potatoes and slice into 1/2 wedges.
Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with Cherchies® Garlic Seasoning, pepper, Thyme, and Rosemary. Mix the potatoes by hand to ensure all the potatoes are covered with the oil and the spices. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until potatoes are cooked. The potatoes should be crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.
