Garlic dill fries
I’ve always loved French fries. They are my weakness (well, one of them, anyway). And fries accompanying a good, juicy burger is even better. But since I enjoy a healthier lifestyle than that of greasy burgers and fries, I often make them at home – oven-fried style. This time, I used sweet potatoes and seasoned with garlic and dill for something different. I’d never tried this flavor combo before and I have to say, I quite liked the earthy flavor of the dill with the sweetness of the potato.
1 large sweet potato, peeled
1-2 cloves garlic, freshly pressed
Peel potato and cut lengthwise. Lightly drizzle with olive oil and season generously with dill, parsley, salt, pepper and fresh garlic. Mix thoroughly. Spread on baking pan and bake at 400 degrees for approximately 15 minutes. *Baking time will vary depending on thickness of cut fries. Crisp up by broiling fries for 2 minutes per side but keep an eye on them to avoid burning. Serve immediately and enjoy!
