Best Sweet Potato (yam) Fries
1 large yam
Coconut oil or bacon fat
Cinnamon OR salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease a baking pan with an oil of your choice. I like to use coconut oil with cinnamon as seasoning, and olive oil with salt and pepper.
Chop the ends off of your sweet potato and slice in half. No need to peel the skin unless you prefer to- it adds fiber! Cut into fries. Place on the baking sheet and drizzle a little more oil over the top, about 1 T. Season as desired. Bake for 15 minutes, flipping once, and returning to the oven for another 10-15 minutes or until golden and crispy!
For a sweet indulgence, you can serve with a maple-grassfed butter blend, or on the savory side, serve with cashew aioli.
