Sweet Potato Fries with Basil Salt November 6, 2007

Chris and I watched Giada on Everyday Italian prepare this yesterday and I wanted to taste them immediately. She applied the oil and salt liberally… as did I. She also wore a tight fitting, low-cut sweater. I wore a t-shirt. The fries still turned out wonderfully.

2 sweet potatoes, wash and sliced
Basil – chiffonade
Kosher salt
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash and sliced the potatoes, leaving the skin on. Place a piece of tin foil on a cookie sheet and place fries on the sheet. Cover in oil. Liberally! Make sure all sides are covered. Sprinkle with a little kosher salt and bake for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes pull from oven and immediately sprinkle basil and salt on the fries. Tasty!

Notes: Giada served these with a garlic mayonnaise which I tried but didn’t like. It was store bought mayonnaise mixed with diced garlic and a little lemon juice. I’d prefer a garlic aioli as the mayonnaise taste was too… gross.

Servings: 2 servings
