Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries
The answer to what side dish am I going to make with this sauteed chicken dish or that baked salmon recipe is so often sweet potato fries, especially if I’m having people over. It’s so easy for me to whip up a big batch of these Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries and know that most people enjoy the taste of sweet potatoes, especially in fry form. But c’mon everything in fry form is pretty much irresistible. I like to make a version of these are are more crispy, and what I do is cut them smaller and toss them in a very light coat of corn starch. I had these with steak and I didn’t mind them being thicker, kinda like steak fries to eat with a fork and knife. Yum!
