Believe it or not, I’ve never been much of a fan of sweet potatoes. That’s not the odd part. Everyone has likes and dislikes that depend on their own personal taste. No, the odd (or maybe ironic is more appropriate) part is that, for as long as I can remember, I have always LOVED Sweet Potato Fries. Crazy, right? Maybe it’s my love of fries in general. Maybe is that fact that they are somewhat “better” for you than usual fries, at least in comparison. Or maybe it’s how the natural sugars get caramelized when you cook it just right, then adding salt gives it a truly unique flavor. Whatever it is, i just can’t get enough of them. If I go out to eat and see that I can upgrade my fries to sweet potato fries, it’s always worth the extra dollar or so. But as usual, I’d rather just make my own! Gimme Some Oven has a great recipe that you should try out.
