| I'm a sweet potato fry addict. While deep fried fries probably aren't the best for my waistline, this baked version is keeps those calories in check without missing out on the flavor. I paired these with (512) Brewing's One. The one is a Belgian-style strong ale that is amber in color, with a light to medium body. Subtle malt sweetness is balanced with noticeable hop flavor, light raisin and mildly spicy, cake-like flavors, and is finished with local wildflower honey aromas. Made with 80% Organic Malted Barley, Belgian Specialty grains, Forbidden Fruit yeast, domestic hops and Good Flow local wildflower honey, this beer is deceptively high in alcohol. The sweetness from the honey complements the sweetness of the fries, and the spices in both beer and fries are nicely balanced. The beer is bold enough for the fries yet not over powering. Perfect. |
Misohungry's Baked Sweet Potato fries:
I'd say that this recipe makes 8-10 servings, but that isn't really true. I could eat them all in a single serving. This recipe makes a single MisoHungry sized serving.
Non-Microwave version - Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Once raw fries have been tossed with spices, salt, and olive oil, place fries on a cooking pan and bake. Bake at this temperature for about 30-35 minutes. Then increase the temperature to 425 degrees and bake for another 20-25 minutes.
Tips: If I'm feeling really pressed for time, I sometimes pan fry these lightly. Older fries can also be brought back to life with five minutes in a 350 degree oven.
