Sweet potato fries are a perfectly healthy side dish for just about any meal. Today I’m sharing another recipe from the new Transamerica Center for Health Studies® (TCHS) cookbook!
I just love how certain foods bring back distinct memories. The first time I had sweet potato fries was in Nashville. Tony and I were there to meet with Tractor Supply to sell our Kaycee Cutters in their stores.
The meeting was in a fancy downtown hotel and we were a little overwhelmed by the big city. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and they served us sweet potato fries alongside a big juicy steak. The meal was heavenly. Before that I had only had sweet potatoes smothered in marshmallows and I wasn’t a fan.
I made my sweet potatoes thinly sliced, lightly coated in oil and seasoned with some smoky ground chipotle before roasting them in the oven. They were a healthy and delicious side to my grilled burgers; I can’t get enough of them!
My parents grow the best sweet potatoes and on occasion I find locally grown sweet potatoes at the farmer’s market. Even if I pick them up at the grocery store, I almost always have them on hand since they’re a dinner favorite.
- 3 medium sweet potatoes
