Is it just us or are sweet potato fries more delicious than regular french fries?

They’re always positioned as the “healthy” alternative at burger joints, but even if we weren’t considering nutrition, they have way more depth of flavor.

All they really need is a little sea salt, but you can also get creative with spices. Cayenne, chili powder, cinnamon, and cumin all complement them wonderfully, in almost any combination.

And yes, they’re more nutrient-dense than your average potato, and of course we’re baking ’em.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

It’s a fast, easy way to make a side dish that pairs with burgers, chicken, and other easy meals. Sweet potatoes are fiber-rich and filled with beta-carotene. Just remember: leave the skin on. That’s where many of the nutrients are hiding.
