baked garlic and parmesan sweet potato fries

sweet potato fries with garlic parmesanFries are my weakness, I just can’t say no to the starchy greasy goodness of crispy potatoes.  But with a new year and my goal to stick to a healthier diet, boardwalk fries are not in the cards. This week I decided to create a twist on one of my favorite french fry dishes, garlic parmesan fries.  This mix of sweet potatoes and a savory topping of garlic and butter is a great side dish to any meal  and a great way to curb your fast food fix.  With the big game coming up this weekend, these fries are also a perfect finger food to serve up at your Super Bowl party or a snack to keep all to yourself, enjoy!  Continue reading
