Sweet Potato Fries

I LOVE sweet potatoes. Roasted with other veggies such as carrots, potatoes and garlic, they are almost like candy.

My kids, however, HATE them. They use to love them when they were babies, but now, you couldn't catch them eating them. Which is too bad considering how good they are for you.

I found the following recipe and decided to try it anyway. I was going to make my kids eat at least a piece. Guess what? THEY FINISHED THE BOWL. They LOVED them!

So here it is! The only thing I omitted was the cheese. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly! SO GOOD!


Garlic & Rosemary Sweet Potato Fries


  • 2 large Sweet Potatoes, peeled & cut into strips
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • 1 Tbsp Rosemary, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
  • 1/8 Tsp. Sweet Paprika

  • Heat Oven to 425 degrees.
  • Combine rosemary, garlic, salt and oil in a bowl and stir until you make a paste.
  • Cut the sweet potato into “fry-like” strips and toss into the oil mixture.
  • Using your hands, thoroughly coat each fry with the garlic and rosemary mixture.
  • Lay the fries out on an aluminum foil covered baking sheet, and leave room between fries (if fries overlap, they will end up steaming instead of roasting.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, remove, flip fries and bake for another 12 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with a little more salt, parmesan, pepper, and paprika.
  • Remove from oven and serve.
