I LOVE SWEET POTATOE FRIES!!! Can anyone tell me how to make them (BAKED) from scratch?

Do I boil them first? slice them then boil? slice and bake? coat them first(in what?)How long do I bake them?

PLEEEEEEASE ENLIGHTEN ME!!! I want to make sweet potatoe fries! :P:P:P

Oh..and any seosoning segestions...I'm allergic to fresh rosemary and basil...dried isn't as bad but something as a subsitute would be nicer! I'd rather not take a chance with a tummy ache! :blink::rolleyes::P

Here you go.

1/2 teaspoon(s) Ground Cumin 1/2 teaspoon(s) Salt1/4 teaspoon(s) Ground Red Pepper1 tablespoon(s) Vegetable Oil..2 large (about 1 1/2 pounds) Sweet Potatoes

Directions

Prepare the sweet potatoes: In a small bowl, combine cumin, salt, and pepper. Set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Peel potatoes, cut each in half lengthwise, and cut each half into 6 wedges. In a large bowl, combine the cut potatoes, oil, and spice mixture. Toss until potatoes are evenly coated.

Bake the fries: On a baking sheet, arrange potatoes in a single layer and place on the middle shelf of the oven. Bake until edges are crisp and potatoes are cooked through -- about 30 minutes.

I just slice them up, coat with olive oil, salt and pepper. Put the in the oven (maybe at 350ish). I don't time it so I don't know how long it takes, but you can tell when they're done.

Yummy Yummy...Thankyou!!! :P:lol::D

I'm triying to get away from vegtable oil...but I bet coconut oil would taste great!!! Also I heard its great for frying, sauteing, and stir frying...(lower burn rate/ higher heat ...something like that!)also healthier.

But thankyou... I'll get some sweet potatoes this weekend at whole foods! :D

I saw those oridas in passing and asumed they had gluten like everything else...nice to know they're on the SAFE list! LOL :P

I saw Rachael Ray make them once. She boils the whole potatoe for about 5-6 minutes. I do that now. They are so much easier to cut. They aren't mushy, just not as hard as raw. I coat with olive oile. Put a piece of foil on a cookie sheet (cause I'm lazy about clean-up). Sprinkle with a little salt. Cook at about 400F until done. I like to cut them in little half or quarter circles about 1/4 inch thick.

when they are done, I sprinkle with cinnamon.

If you aren't determined to be healthy, try frying them in deep fat like regular French fries. Then sprinkle with a little brown sugar. I suppose that is the Southern way, since we fry everything we possibly can. Anybody want to guess why Mississippi is rated the fattest state?

Another simple method: Peel (or don't), cut into strips about 1/4" thick, toss in a bowl with a little olive oil. Add seasonings if you want. Spread on a baking sheet, not overlapping. 10 minutes at 450, then turn them over and give another 10 minutes at 450. The thinner parts get very brown by the end, so you might want to keep an eye on them for the last 5 minutes or reduce the heat a little.

Well thats what I was thinking...(boiling first)...those things are just so hard and I get a lot of pain in my hands...I allways boil them a little before stirfring them and you absoulutly HAVE to boil if you make hash browns,(theres an Idea..sweey potatoe hash browns....or for Thanksgiving what about making Yam frys with alittle cinimon sugar for a change...ha ha ...like a yam churro...LOL)!

I just wasn't sure if I was supposede to or not...and didn't want to end uo with mash potatoe fries..or MUSH potatoe fries..LOL!!! :blink::rolleyes::lol::D

An old cookbook of mine suggested getting a hot pan with a little olive oil and frying the french fries/sweet potato fries for just a couple minutes before putting them on a cookie sheet and baking them. The pan has to be hot when the s. potatoes are put in, and they get turned once so they have a little crust on the outside. Supposedly, this helps them stay crisper in the oven...I always do them this way, so I don't know if they are crisper like this or not, LOL.

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
