D's mom - thank you! I'm going to look for that in the organic section of my grocery store. What cheese do you think would go well? I don't love swiss much either. I'm thinking a very sharp white cheddar?
LL - you're right - these fries are yummy. Here's the recipe.
Roasted Sweet Potato Fries:
2 tbsp olive oil
coarse salt & fresh ground black pepper
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1.5 pounds sweet potatoes, scrubbed, and cut into fries
(real maple syrup to dip them in)
Preheat oven to 450* F.
In small bowl, whisk oil, butter, salt, pepper to taste.
On an oiled baking sheet, arrange the potato slices, not touching, in rows. Brush potatoes with the oil mixture, and roast them in the upper 1/3 of a preheated 450* oven, turning them once halfway through. Cook 18-22 minutes, or till golden and crisp.
I cook these for less time, and even turn the oven down, cause my oven is really hot. When I first made them I cut them thin, but now I cut them thicker. You'll find your own groove with that. I also peel them for the baby, cause he likes them better peeled.
My 17 month old LOVES these!!! I serve them to him in a dish that suctions to his high chair tray, with a little plastic shot glass of maple syrup for dipping. And my husband loves these too. They are so easy and are a big hit.
