Craving a crispy baked French fry or crunchy home fries?

It's mid-summer and if you haven't already, it's time to get your grill flame fired up and make our infamous BBQ Swiss Burgers. For guilt-free flavor, we recommend serving them with our delicious Crispy Baked Fries or Healthy Baked Sweet Potato Home Fries featured below. If you enjoy potatoes on your morning plate, these recipes also pair nicely with your favorite breakfast foods. Our personal favorite is this Early Morning Mushroom Feta Eggs recipe.

Both recipes are interchangeable with potatoes or sweet potatoes, allowing you to take the opportunity to get creative and bake whichever you're craving. Since they're easily prepped ahead of time and are even freezer-friendly, they're great when you're in a pinch or strapped for time.

So, get cooking and give your taste buds something to talk about.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease baking pan with olive oil.

  2. Clean and cut potatoes into wedges.

  3. Evenly spread potato wedges onto baking sheet.

  4. Drizzle just enough olive oil to lightly coat wedges. Less is more! Toss wedges so they are evenly coated.

  5. Choose any (or all) of the spices listed above and sprinkle on wedges, toss and spread the wedges out evenly. Our favorite is a little Old Bay or some cayenne pepper for a bit of heat!

  6. Bake wedges for 45 minutes in a preheated oven. Every 10 minutes, turn the wedges so they crisp up and bake evenly.

  7. If you like your fries especially crunchy, turn your broiler on high following the recommended bake time. Keep a close eye and flip the wedges every minute or so until they reach your desired crispiness.

  8. Serve and enjoy!

Healthy Baked Sweet Potato Home Fries

These baked home fries are an honest-to-goodness staple in our kitchen. No matter what day of the week it is, if you sift through our fridge, you'll most likely find a container of these tasty treats. We eat them in burger bowls, at breakfast with eggs, use them to top salads or simply serve as a side. Because it takes a bit of chopping, I typically make a big batch at the beginning of the week and serve them with whatever tickles my fancy. You can even freeze them for later use!


Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Chop sweet potatoes into small cubes.

  3. Place chopped potatoes on a large baking pan. Coat potatoes with EVOO, salt and pepper.

  4. Use your hands to massage EVOO into potato cubes and evenly spread them into a single layer on the pan.

  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes, tossing occasionally so potatoes crisp up and bake evenly.


Recipe Notes

For a little added crunch, broil these babies for 5-10 minutes before serving. Pay close attention so they don't burn while under the broiler! Toss them every 2-3 minutes for an even crunch on all sides.
