Sweet Potato Fries

I had every intention of baking these do I could have a healthier version of fries. Only every time I try to make "Oven Sweet Potato Fries" they end up like roasted sweet potatoes.

So I threw caution to the wind & deep fried them. I sure hope you were sitting down b/c that can be a lot to handle. Now I didn't use the Fry Daddy, that thing is buried in a kitchen cabinet behind many of the other kitchen gadgets I use all the time , like my toaster oven, mandoline slicer, etc... I just pan fried them. I used my candy thermometer to get the oil to the right temperature & tossed the cut potatoes in for about 5 -7 minutes.

Now I like my fries crispy & well these were not. They were good, just not as crispy as I would have liked them to be. I seasoned them with Lawry's Salt Seasoning. They were a nice addition to our ribs & green beans.

Mmm... fries! What a great side to pair with ribs. One of our fave ways to prepare is making them a la hot crashed potatoes style. (Nuke until cooked, place on baking sheet & smash with bottom of heavy glass, drizzle oil and seasoning or brown sugar on top and then bake for 20-25 minutes in a 450 degree oven.
