Sweet Potato Curry Fries

28 Feb

The idea was to roast some sweet potato wedges with some super-fragrant spices and a little olive oil and end up with healthy sweet potato fries.  Well, the idea was lovely, but the execution was, uh….see for yourself.

Man-friend (ok obviously he's my husband but I refuse to call him DH or whatever because we DO NOT use doilies in this house) is mixing the sweet potato wedges with spices.

The spices included curry, cumin, just enough cinnamon to go undetected by Man-friend (who hates cinnamon), salt and pepper.  Oh plus a little cayenne pepper. Like, literally a dusting.  Did the same person who refuses to use the term “DH” just use the word “dusting”?  Indeedily-doodily.

We distributed them more or less evenly on a Silpat on a baking sheet, and baked at 450 degrees  for about 15 minutes.  Then took them out to turn them over/move them around, then another 15 minutes.

But they were mushy.

Hmm. Delish.

We put them back in the oven, thinking we could dry them out and make them crispy?  No such luck.

Yeeeeah.  Not our finest moment.

At least they tasted good.
