Autumn Spice Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Hello Darlings!

It’s tailgate season! Which usually means lots of incredibly unhealthy (but delicious) food, cheap beer, and lots of yelling at the television. And while I can’t help with the yelling at the TV bit, (goodness knows I do when the Bruins are on) I can help with the first two. Cheap beer? Try serving a super simple and super tasty Spiced Pomegranate Martini. Unhealthy food? How about serving up some quick-to-make Autumn Spice Baked Sweet Potato Fries? You’re satisfied by same starchy goodness that you get from your typical fry, but with much less oil and a lot more flavor! Your tailgate buddies will thank you!


Sweet Potatoes
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
1 Teaspoon Nutmeg
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil


1. Preheat your oven to 500 degrees.
2. Wash and skin the sweet potatoes. Cut them into (relatively) uniform wedges. (Note: this is easier said than done as sweet potatoes are notoriously unpredictable when it comes to size- do your best).
3. In a small bowl mix spices and oil.

4. Working in batches, add sweet potato wedges to the oil/spice mixture and coat well.

5. Place the spiced wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

6. Pop in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the wedges are easily pierced with a fork.
7. Enjoy your fall treat!
