Healthier French Fries

If The Idea of Healthy Doesn't Get You- The Color Will!

The combination of russet potatoes and sweet potatoes really works. Roasting white potatoes brings out the starchy flavor and the texture is crispy. When the sweet potatoes are roasted they get caramelized from the sugars cooking... And I love that!
I also love the fact that sweet potatoes are one the best foods you could eat. They are a super health food. Check out the nutrition facts at the World's Healthiest Foods website.

Roasted Sweet and White Potato Steak Fries

3 sweet potatoes, cut into about 1 by 5-inch pieces
3 russet potatoes, cut into about 1 by 5-inch pieces
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the potatos on a foil-lined baking sheet and toss with the olive oil. Bake until golden brown, about 45 minutes.

It's that easy!

I don't really like sweet potatoes all that much, but I've had sweet potato fried and they are SO good!

Mooncrazy, I think it would go great with bbq. Actually, you could even grill larger pieces as long as they are cut thin!

Midwestmaven, No problem, glad to help.

Claire, that sounds good too!
