Let me introduce you to your new favorite side dish! Crispy, flavorful, amazing sweet potato fries!
While in Washington DC for my brothers masters graduation last weekend, we visited BGR: The Burger Joint, so that I could try their famous Lobster Roll. (See Instagram for the pic of that scrumptious lobster filled roll!)
While I went for the sandwich, I was inspired by their option to add rosemary, roasted garlic and parmesan to their fries.
Upon arriving home, I headed into the kitchen to add all three to my crispy baked sweet potato fries!
I also added Nature’s Path Mesa Sunrise Cereal for a nice little crunch on the outside of the fries!
- 2 lbs sweet potatoes
- 1 cup Nature’s Path Mesa Sunrise Cereal
- 2 tbsp fresh rosemary
- ¼ cup parmesan cheese (grated)
- ¼ cup olive oil
Preheat the oven to 400°.
Add the Sunrise Cereal, rosemary and parmesan to a food processor.
Blend for 30-60 seconds into a fine crumb mixture.
Slice the sweet potatoes as uniformly as possible. I sliced each potato straight down the middle, then sliced vertically into “fries”, then took each fry and sliced it in half again.
*Tip: try to purchase sweet potatoes that are long and skinny, easier for slicing into fries.
Place the sweet potato fries in a large plastic bag, then add the olive oil.
Toss to coat, then add the rosemary parmesan cereal coating to the bag.
Toss to coat, then place the fries in an even layer on a baking sheet.
Bake for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Soft and sweet in the middle, crispy and flavorful on the outside. The perfect combination of flavors and textures!
And these fries are a side dish that you can feel good about eating! Sweet potatoes are low in calories and loaded with vitamins, Nature’s Path cereal adds fiber and protein, while the olive oil provides good, healthy fats!
Healthy, yummy and super flavorful, I’ll be the first to say that these are going to be the best sweet potato fries that you’ve ever had!
