Sweet potatos – dontcha just love ’em? Baked, twice-baked, mashed, in-a-pie or in-a-pudding. And when I discovered sweet potato fries in my grocers’ freezer section awhile back…yupper – I was hooked!
But last Christmas when my eldest son and his wonderful wife were over, Julia introduced me to her version of ’em. Now I have to preface this to say that while she is still a young married woman…she is a great cook! Obviously, her mama didn’t waste any of their time together in the kitchen. I had some of these tuberous treats hanging around, and she offered to handle that part of the meal. In a snap she had these goodies good-to-go…and they sure went wildly fast at the table!
Directions (such as they are)
Scrub ’em clean and cut them up in steak-fries-sized pieces. Drizzle some olive oil in the bottom of a glass 13X9 baking pan. Spread out the fries and drizzle a bit more oil over the top (don’t go crazy, tho!) and then sprinkle with garlic salt (or just use salt and pepper if you’re not a garlic fan). Bake at 400*F for about 25 mins. Test to see if they’re softer and “close” to ready. Sprinkle generously with the Parmesan and put back in the oven for about 5-10 mins.
Take them out, enjoy the smell as your kitchen fills up with its fabulous fragrance, and enjoy!
