Sweet Potato Steak Fries

We’ve gotten some delicious produce from our CSA bag so far this season. We’ve been getting tons of corn lately! So we decided to make turkey burgers with grilled corn for dinner one night. I wanted to get something that would spice it up though. Stew’s been wanted sweet potatoes for a while now. So I decided that I’d make some sweet potato fries to go with our burgers. They were perfect! They provided a nice sweet bite to contrast the spicy burgers and juicy corn.

Cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. Quarter each half so you have 8 fries per potato. Arrange the potatoes on two pans so there’s enough room for them to cook. Pour 2 Tbsp of olive oil over potatoes on each pan. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, and 1 Tbsp brown sugar over potatoes on each pan. Mix everything together with your hands, ensuring that each spear is completely coated with oil and spices. Lay potatoes cut side down. 

Bake for 30 minutes. Flip halfway through cooking time. Once they’re golden and fork tender, they’re ready!
