If you have the urge to eat fries is sweet potato fries heathier for you.
Home-made "fries" should be a little healthier if you use fresh potatoes.
yah I agree, but if I used sweet potato instead would that be heathier.
I make my own sweet potato chips. Cut a sweet potato in thin slices. Take a cookie sheet and spray some olive oil on it then a dash of salt and pepper. Lay the chips down flat on the sheet then spray them with olive oil and a dash of salt and pepper. Put in the oven on a medium temp until they become slightly golden around the edges.
When I say spray its because I use this device that lets me add my own olive oil that I have pump every now and then. It sprays the olive oil out in a mist.
And yes I find them for myself to be better then using normal potato.
thanks Rivet for your info..I will try that recipe. Where did you get the oil sprayer.
I've made Turnip fries almost the same way and they come out pretty good too. Peel and cut them into fries and prepare as above. I don't have an oil sprayer so I just used the canned olive oil spray. And I use garlic powder instead of salt. Tastes good either way. Turnip has less carbs and more protein than sweet potato.
