Just because you're watching your waistline doesn't mean you can't indulge in some french fries. In this recipe, nutritious sweet potatoes are sprinkled with zesty seasonings and bake in the oven for a low-fat treat!
These spuds are sure to root up fun at your "spooky" affair (and during daily meals!). Judy, one of Crafting Traditions' kitchen experts, came up with the wedges to flavor a family Halloween gathering. When they won rave reviews, she decide to share them here so you can try them, too.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
"These tempting potatoes are one finger food I can make a meal of," informs Marilyn Dutkus of Laguna Beach, California. "Quick to fix, they're a hit at parties and as a snack. Ranch dressing is a tasty alternative to sour cream."
A Parmesan cheese and basil coating provides these "homegrown" fries with their pleasant taste. "Seasoned with garlic powder and baked in the oven, they're a zippy alternative to deep-fat fried potatoes," notes Tammy Neubauer of Ida Grove, Iowa.
Edna Hoffman, of Hebron, Indiana can toss together this side dish in less than a half hour. The delightful wedges are a refreshing change from typical baked potatoes and nicely priced at only 25 cents per serving.
You won't settle for store-bought chips again after munching these crispy deep-fried snacks. Seasoned with chili powder and cayenne pepper, the zippy paper-thin chips are surefire crowd-pleasers.
