More About This Recipe
  • If you’re new to yucca, this starchy South American root vegetable will quickly become a favorite. Similar in texture to a potato, this root can be boiled, chopped up, mashed, fried, baked and most importantly, turned into fries. Baked yucca fries are the snack or side you’ll want on every dinner, game day and party menu. Baking it ensures the fries are golden brown and crispy on the outside without becoming too greasy. They taste great with ketchup or garlic aioli, and even plain with a little salt.
