I could live on these Old Bay Sweet Potato Fries. Old Bay is the perfect seasoning for a southern girl on the east coast :) It was created by a German immigrant living in Baltimore to cheaply season crabs but is now widely used in all of New England and in the Southern States. It tastes great with my crispy sweet potato fries encrusted in almond flour. Paired with the fresh parsley in the creamy avocado mash, this has hands down become my favorite food!
Old Bay Sweet Potato Fries
- 1 large Sweet Potato (or Yam!)
- 2 Avocados
- Olive Oil
- 4 Tablespoons Almond Flour
- Salt, Pepper, Old Bay, Garlic and Onion Powder
- Fresh Parsley
Preheat the oven to 400.
Peel and cut the sweet potato in half first, then into fourths, than each quarter into 2-4 smaller "french fry" sized pieces. Throw all the fries into a bowl and coat with olive oil. Generously shake the spices in (adjusting the amount depending on your taste) and the almond flour. Toss the bowl around until all the fries are evenly coated.
Line a couple on baking sheets with parchment paper and spread the seasoned fries across them leaving a couple centimeters of space between each fry. This will allow for all encompassing crispiness!
Bake for 15 minutes, then flip each fry and bake for another 15 minutes. For extra crispy fries, turn heat up to 450 and bake for an additional 5 minutes :)
Meanwhile, mash the avocados with salt, pepper, and fresh chopped parsley.
Serve together and enjoy!
