Recipe of the Week: Baked Sweet Potato Fries

from: Heather Whitworth, Alpine School District FACS teacher
1 large or 2 medium sweet potatoes
2 T. Olive Oil
2 tsp. Greek Seasoning or Seasoning Salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 T. Parmesan Cheese (from the can) or if using fresh or grated Parmesan you may want to put it in a blender or food processor to make it a little finer so it will stick to the sweet potatoes.

Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch strips or wedges. 

Combine the olive oil, seasonings and Parmesan cheese in a large bowl. Toss in the sweet potatoes coating each piece well.

Transfer the seasoned sweet potatoes to a large baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees until fork tender on the inside and slightly crispy on the outside, about 20-25 minutes. Be sure to turn them over half way through the cooking process. 

Serve with the Rockin' Sauce (see below).

Rockin' Sauce
1/4 c. Barbeque Sauce

1/2 t. Dijon Mustard
1/4 t. Italian Seasoning
1/4 t. salt
Pinch of pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and blend together until smooth. Serve with baked sweet potatoes.
