Homemade French Fries

 My body is demanding lots of comfort food lately…which leads to making these…

Complex carbohydrates are satisfying and healthy. Did you know sweet potato contains oodles of vitamin A that helps with eye health? I am solely thinking of my eyes while eating these ;)

Seriously though, these are sooo much healthier than deep-fried fast food fries and are so delicious!

Here’s what you’ll need:


Sweet potato

Olive oil

Salt + pepper

Scrub your potatoes clean and then cut into wedges. Cut regular potatoes into large wedges and the sweet potatoes into thinner wedges so they’ll have the same cooking time.

Place on a cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Turn your potatoes so all sides are coated with olive oil then cook at 350 for 45 mins flipping them half through cooking time.

These fries are the perfect game-day treat that your whole family will enjoy. For zero clean-up this non-stick foil works amazingly well to line your cookie sheet.

Hope you likey!

p.s. Do complex carbohydrates remind you of this? Love Brad Pitt in this episode!

    Just a suggestion….scrub and slice the potatoes up and boil in a pot of water for 5 min. Add an egg white to your spices and mix really well. Toss your lightly boiled potatoes in the seasoning and egg mixture and bake as usual. This makes oven baked fries that are really crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy in the middle.
