Who would have guessed that Kristin would end up marrying an amazing man who used to be a four-star chef and who has since taught her a few things. When I go to Portland to visit her family, she will inevitably make these sweet potato fries for all of us. They’re super simple. And they are delicious! I simply had to steal her recipe, and now I have a great finger food for my boys. So, thank you Kisty (and Aric:) - love you!
Rosemary Sweet Potato French Fries
3 pounds sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 fresh rosemary sprigs
Heat oven to 425 degrees and place baking pan in oven to preheat for 5 minutes
Cut sweet potato into French-fry shape and toss fries in a large bowl with olive oil and pepper.
Remove rosemary from twig and finely grind in a mortar and pestle or in your coffee grinder (make sure it’s clean!). Combine with potatoes.
Place oiled and seasoned fries into baking pan and roast for 35 minutes, turning them once halfway through. Potatoes should be fork-tender and a bit browned.
