Sweet Potato Fries

Good News. I got my Camera back :) So this was my dinner tonight. The top are my Favorite carrots to make. The Bottom Right is sauteed Honey Teriyaki marinaded chicken. And the the bottom left is my experiment.

Sweet Potato Fries

2 Sweet Potatoes: Cut into steak fries.
1/2 cup butter
2 tbsp Honey
1 tbsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Nutmeg

1. Spread the cut sweet potato onto a baking sheet. Try not to have them overlap.
2. Melt Butter in microwave. After melted, mix in Honey, Nutmeg, and Cinnamon.
3. Take a Brush (or a spoon) and cover the sweet potatoes in butter mixture.
4. In a 375 degree oven, put the sweet potatoes in for 20-25 minutes.

OVERALL: So I kinda messed up on the sweet potatoes. I Put the oven on at 400, which I realized was too hot, so about 5 minutes after them being in I turned it down to 375. Also, I just bought a new baking pan and am still not use to working with it. That being said the bottoms of the potatoes came out burnt :( However, that being said, the flavor was awesome, very much like a sweet potato pie. Most recipes use paprika for these fries, but being that I don't have any I opted to listen to my sweet tooth.

On a side note, I've been buying pre-packaged perdue chicken and I have to say that this chicken has a weird flavor & texture that I am not fond of.

Hey great idea on the sweet potato fries! I have a similar blog - I'm a grad student who loves delicious foods but is quite poor at the moment - and I was debating how to prepare my sweet potatoes with dinner tonight.. I was going to make them mashed, but baked seems like a much better idea! Thanks!
