Sweet Potato Fries with Blue Cheese
I used to avoid sweet potatoes as a child, mostly because they came out of a can. When I heard of the many health benefits, I began trying fresh sweet potatoes with my husband. We like to make fries with different toppings like cinnamon sugar or cayenne pepper, and then we discovered how awesome they are with blue cheese. —Katrina Krumm, Apple Valley, Minnesota
