I love fries- who doesn’t! You’re only LYING to yourself if you say that you don’t like fries. I don’t eat fries because they’re deep-fried and unhealthy. Of course if someone handed me a nice crispy curly fry or waffle fry, I wouldn’t be able to refuse! However, I don’t like getting that greasy, fatty feeling that I generally get after eating deep-fried food; another reason why I avoid fried items!
But, this weekend I made some sweet & spicy sweet potato fries that were amazing- crispy, light, salty, sweet, spicy what can be better than that! Plus, sweet potato is generally low in calories (~150/medium potato) and high in Vitamin A and Dietary Fiber. Baked crisp with melted brown sugar and spicy cayenne- believe me the combination is delicious!
Baked Sweet & Spicy Sweet Potato Fries:
  • 3 sweet potatoes- washed & scrubbed
  • 3 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2-1 tbsp smokey paprika
  • 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • coarse black pepper– few grinds
  • salt- to taste
  • 1 tbsp dark brown sugar (for garnishing)
  • few sprigs of chive- finely chopped
  • PAM olive oil flavor

1. Preheat oven to 425. In a small bowl whisk together oil, pepper, cayenne pepper and paprika.

2. Cut the potatoes into strips (french-frie size) and lay them on a baking sheet. Pour oil mixture over potatoes and toss until evenly coated. Spray with some pam and make sure each strip is hitting the baking sheet. Sprinkle with brown sugar evenly over potatoes.

3. Bake for 30-35 minutes until darker and crispy, tossing every 10 minutes. Remove and cool. While cooling, sprinkle with remaining brown sugar and garnish with chives. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce- I recommend Honey Mustard YUM :)

Serves 4

Look at those crispy fries sparkling with brown sugar.. yummy..

Betty’s Deep-Fried Potato Wedges Recipe

baked potato wedges

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Deep-Fried Potato Wedges. These are Russett potatoes that are boiled in water and chilled overnight, and then cut into wedges for deep-frying.

Ingredients (makes 30 potato wedges):

5 medium-sized potatoes, unpeeled (I used Russett potatoes.)
salted water for boiling potatoes
peanut oil for frying potatoes
sea salt, to taste

In a large pot, place unpeeled potatoes in water that has been salted with 1 teaspoon of salt (or to taste). Bring to a boil and boil for about 25 minutes, or until tender, but not mushy, when tested with a fork. Drain, and cool to room temperature. Place in the refrigerator and chill overnight. To prepare the potatoes, cut each one in half lengthwise. Putting the flat side against the cutting board, slice each potato-half into three equal wedges, for a total of thirty wedges. Heat peanut oil to 350 degrees (F). Carefully place potato wedges into hot oil, in batches. The potato wedges will become brown and crisp very quickly, and they are already cooked in the center. Remove the browned potato wedges to a platter that is covered with paper toweling to drain. When drained, place the Deep-Fried Potato Wedges on a nice serving plate and serve immediately with ketchup. These are great with hamburgers, hot dogs, steaks, really just about anything! Enjoy!!! –Betty 
