Sweet potatoes have 400% more Vitamin A in them than white potatoes. They also have more Vitamin C, fewer calories, more fiber and few net carbs than a white potato, despite having more sugar (source). By using sweet potatoes and baking them, you can enjoy your baked sweet potato fries with less guilt!
Italian Fries | Martha Stewart Living - Who needs French fries when you've got Italian fries? A twist on a recipe created by Lucinda's Italian relatives, these oven-baked fries are tossed in olive oil, grated cheese, and a medley of dried herbs. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper while they're still hot, and serve immediately. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).
Whenever I have a lone bag of french fries in my freezer, or a sweet potato just begging to become snack food, I bake them up and make Loaded Mexican Sweet Potato Cheese Fries. Like nachos; only better!
