Try it Thursday: Halloween Sweet Potato Friesby on October 30th, 2014
Looking for a fun Halloween side that is healthier than all that candy? These home-baked sweet potato fries are all that — and quick and easy too!
- 2 large sweet potatoes
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
3 tablespoons olive oil
OPTIONAL Instead of the spice, sugar and salt, try a pinch of Old El Paso taco seasoning
1. Scrub the sweet potatoes clean. Slice sweet potatoes into 1/4 rounds. Use mini cookie cutters to cut jack-o-lantern faces, stars, and pumpkins into the center of each sweet potato slice. Or, use a small knife and carve a mini jack-o-lantern face into the sweet potato slices.
2. Place sweet potatoes on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice, sugar, and salt. Bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees and cook until tender, about 18-22 minutes.
