Breaded & Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is having a less stressful week than I am! It’s currently midterm szn so I am currently living on caffeine and easy go-to meals and snacks. I will go back to posting real food recipes in about 2 weeks.

What’s more healthier than regular fries? Breaded and baked sweet potato fries! They’re super easy to make and can be eaten as an afternoon snack or even accompany your evening meal.

Let’s get started:

Ingredients:

  • Sweet Potato
  • Italian Bread Crumbs
  • Egg
  • Italian Seasoning, Oregano, Garlic Powder, Parsley
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Cayenne Pepper

Directions:

  1. Wash the sweet potato and cut in half.
  2. Cut each half of the sweet potato into long french fry like pieces.FullSizeRender-6.jpg
  3. Set half of the sweet potato fries aside.
  4. In a bowl, beat an egg.
  5. In a separate bowl, pour your bread crumbs (estimate about half a cup) and add more of your Italian seasoning, oregano, garlic powder, and parsley. This will add a lot of flavor. Transfer to small plate so it’s easier to bread your fries.FullSizeRender-7.jpg
  6. At this time, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and line your baking sheet with parchment paper and coat with baking spray or simply just coat your tray with baking spray if you don’t have parchment paper.
  7. Place each sweet potato fry in the beaten egg and make sure to coat it thoroughly.
  8. Then place the fry in the plate of breading and cover the fry entirely.
  9. Transfer to the baking tray.
  10. Repeat until the first half of the sweet potato fries are done.
  11. Next, get the rest of your sweet potato fries and place in a bowl.
  12. Lightly coat with olive oil and a pinch of salt and cayenne pepper.
  13. Place each sweet potato fry one by one on the baking tray, making sure each fry is spaced out.FullSizeRender-8.jpg
  14. Place baking tray in the oven at 400 degrees F for 30 min or until lightly browned.
  15. Broil on low for 5 minutes.
  16. Let cool for 5 minutes and then serve!FullSizeRender-10.jpgFullSizeRender-9.jpg

Suggestions, Substitutions, Tips & Tricks:

  • Use whatever seasoning you like; you don’t even have to use extra seasoning at all!
  • If you want your fries crispier, broil on low for an additional 5 minutes.

I hope everyone can make these sometime this week! They’re super easy and fast to make and so delicious to eat!
