Sweet Potato Fries Click here for print version of recipe
3 large Sweet Potatoes
Add your favorite seasonings to taste:
(I like Pumpkin Pie Spice, Italian Seasoning, Salt, Sugar
+ Tony Chacheres Creole Seasoning if you like a little kick!…mmm)
Honey-Lime Glaze: (optional) It is tasty, but make the fries a bit limp
1/2 c. Honey
Juice from 1 Lime
3 T. Honey
2 T Lime juice (fresh-squeezed lime juice is so good!)
4 oz. Fat Free Cream Cheese (softened)
4 oz. Yoplait Light Yogurt – Key Lime Pie Flavor (or any vanilla yogurt will do)
Slice sweet potatoes into 1/4″ or thinner slabs. Spray hot griddle (350 degrees), and arrange slabs close together on griddle. Spray with oil, then sprinkle seasonings on. Cook for about 5 minutes. You may want to cover with foil to cook quicker. Turn the slabs, then spray and sprinkle seasoning on again. Finish browning until tender, about 5 more minutes. Remove from heat. Optional: Brush the glaze on the warm sweet potato slabs. It is easiest to use a small electric mixer to blend the Dip. Garnish with lime slices and serve with the Honey-Lime Dip. ENJOY!
Comments: My daughter, Janel, and I tried a few variations from the Internet that were baked in the oven, but the fries stayed too moist and limp. Frying them on a hot griddle kept them drier and a bit more crispy, yet still light and healthy. They also cooked much faster on the griddle. Skip the glaze if you want them crisper. For kids, omit the Tony’s Chacheres and Italian Seasoning.
