Make these sweet potato fries with just a few ingredients. They're easy!
Candy, candy, and more candy. In my house there's a bowl of candy corn in the front room, and piles of mini chocolate wrappers mounded near the kitchen sink. There's boxes of taffy in backpacks, and half-eaten caramel apples wrapped and waiting to be finished in the fridge.
We're sick of sweet already, and Halloween hasn't even arrived yet.
So, we're kicking the sugar and going for food that's fun…and healthier!
If you're like us, looking for a quick, easy Halloween eat that's naturally sweet and fun to nibble on, try making these Halloween Sweet Potato Fries. They take minutes to make and are a welcome side for parties or fall dinners.
First, grab a sweet potato, salt, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice, a drizzle of oil, and a few fun Halloween cookie cutters.
Slice your sweet potatoes into 1/4" slices. If you're feeling really fancy, you can peel the skin off before, but it's not necessary!
Use your cookie cutters to snip pretty Halloween-inspired windows into your sweet potatoes, or use a mini paring knife to carve jack-o-lantern faces into your medallions.
Drizzle with oil. I've written olive oil into the recipe because that's the most common oil to use for stuff like this, but if you have a chance, try nabbing some avocado oil. It's got a much higher smoking point, so it's safer for baked treats. Plus, the flavor is mild and happy.
Sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice, salt, and sugar. Or, wanna shake it up a bit? Try using a little Old El Paso taco seasoning instead and make Mexi fries!
Bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, or until your sweet potatoes tenderize and turn into roasted sweet potato fries!
Pull those babies from the oven and pop them onto a plate.
