Tonight we’re sharing our oven baked sweet potato steak fries. Seasoned with fresh herbs and freshly grated Pecorino cheese they are perfect for a summer evening’s bbq.
Here’s what you’ll need:
3 Large, white Sweet Potatoes
1/4 to 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 cup grated Pecorino Cheese (Grated Parmesan will work as well, just don’t use the stuff in a cardboard can)
1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
2 sprigs fresh Rosemary, chopped fine
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F.
Peal the sweet potatoes and then cut into wedges or slices about 1/4 inch thick and 1 inch wide. Combine the salt, pepper and rosemary. Toss the sweet potatoes with the olive oil to coat evenly. Then sprinkle the sweet potato fries with the salt, pepper, rosemary and grated cheese (having someone help you makes this MUCH easier) while tossing gently so fries get evenly coated.
Cover a couple of baking sheets with baking parchment. This will keep the fries from sticking and help get them nice and crispy!
Lay out the fries in an even layer on a couple of baking sheets. Place in the oven and bake 10 to 15 minutes. Turn all of the fries over and bake another 10 to 15 minutes or until they start to brown. Keep an eye on them as they can go from under done to burned very rapidly.
Serve hot and sprinkle with a little more grated pecorino cheese. And don’t forget the Ranch dipping sauce!
