Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Midnight baked sweet potato fries…

Here is the flashback: Last night I was sleeping to glory cuddled under the blanket, suddenly my hubby (who had slept all evening and was watching TV the entire night) patted me, which partly woke me up and I heard him whisper into my ears that he wanted baked sweet potato fries. For a while, I felt like I am dreaming, if it was a dream I wouldn’t be surprised, as my brain is on food lately. But the reality was it wasn’t a dream, he seriously woke me up and asked for this in the middle of the night. Still drowsy, my reply was: have you gone mad, get back to sleep. I haven’t heard anything funnier than this in the middle of the night. I turned him down and went back to sleep. As I closed my eyes and tried hard to fall back to sleep, all I can think was about baked sweet potato fries. Guess what, my hubby’s wish was granted, I woke up and baked sweet potato fries at 1: 25 am. I had baked this couple of weeks ago and my hubby loved it. Now, I don’t know what made him want to eat this in the middle of the night. Anyway, this was the first time I baked at a totally odd time and I actually had fun doing it.

I always boil sweet potato. So to make a difference I tried to bake it after seasoning it with some spices. It actually came out pretty good, and when it is baked it’s all healthy. This baked sweet potato fries got three flavors in it: sweetness of the potato, the spiciness from the spices, and the caramelized flavor from baking. Your taste buds would definitely go crazy for these flavors, just like my hubby’s.

Ingredients:

  • Sweet potato- 2, cut into long thin wedges
  • Cumin powder- 1tsp
  • Pepper powder-1 tsp
  • Paprika-1tsp
  • Salt-1/4 tsp
  • Olive oil-1-2tbsp

Instruction:

  • In a large bowl toss the sweet potato along with all the spices and oil.
  • Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and place on the middle rack of the oven.
  • Bake it for 30-40 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through and the edges turn crispy.
  • Serve immediately while it is hot.
