Recipe Corner: Sweet Potato Fries

Now that the grills are being fired up, it’s time to start thinking of some new side dishes. Sweet potato fries are a healthy alternative to the traditional French fries. My kids eat them and don’t even realize anything is different. Enjoy! And don’t forget to contact me if you are interested in having your blog and your yummy recipe featured in a Fabulous Food Friday Post. Whether you bake it, sauté it, or just microwave it, send it in! Share your yummy food and you may find yourself with new visitors. Please email me directly if you are interested. ( )


• 4 sweet potatoes, cut into large French fries
• 1 tablespoon water
• 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
• 1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
• 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste
• 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
2. Place the cut sweet potatoes into a microwave-safe dish with the water. Cook on in the microwave for 5 minutes on full power. Drain off liquid, and toss with Italian seasoning, lemon pepper, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Arrange fries on a baking sheet in a single layer.
3. Bake for 30 minutes, turning once, or until fries are crispy on the outside.
