Strangely, I don’t really care for French fries. I haven’t had a fry in probably a decade. They just don’t call my name. I’d much rather have a baked potato or some roasted potatoes. Maybe I’m a potato purist. (Though my family might choose a term like health freak.)
We eat potatoes in some none-fry form at least a couple of times a week around here. And these have quickly become a favorite, particularly with the kids.
Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet, of course, but when you slice them and brush them with a little maple syrup, then sprinkle on some cinnamon and roast them? Oh my. Little candy nuggets! But wholesome ones.
You can certainly eat these maple cinnamon sweet potatoes with a fork and be civilized about it, but we just use our hands. I’ll thank my 2-year-old for showing us how to reconnect with our food on a more physical level. Shoot, on any level – he knows how to tackle some food with enthusiasm!
Try these out today to add to your potato repertoire. Enjoy!
