You ever have a day when you want something good to eat for dinner, but everything you want requires a trip to the store? And you have no desire whatsoever to go to the store?
That was us tonight. Could we go to the store? Sure. Is it far away? No, just about two miles from the house, probably less. And since
wine alone does not qualify as a meal we had a random supply of potatoes, I offered to make sweet potato fries. No brown sugar required; no marshmallow was harmed in the making of this dish. This is not sweet – this is my new version of Savory Sweet Potato Fries!
2 medium sized sweet potatoes, washed, dried, but not peeled
Olive oil – enough to drizzle for about five seconds
Cracked black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Carefully, cut off the ends of the potatoes such that your fries will have squared-off ends, not tapering.
Cutting lengthwise, slice the potatoes into fries about two inches long and a half inch thick.
Drizzle a little olive oil on a baking sheet; two sheets if you need them. I did.
Place the fries on the baking sheet, in a single layer. Make sure the fries do not touch each other.
Drizzle a little more olive oil on top of the fries.
Season the fries with the salt, pepper, thyme, and oregano.
Bake the seasoned fries in the oven for 20 minutes.
Once done, serve and serve quickly. Your guests will be hungry after smelling the fries baking in the oven.
