If you love fries and you like sweet potatoes then combine the two with these Sweet Potato fries from Trader Joes. I really prefer to make my own from real sweet potatoes to bake in the oven but sometimes life and time dictate that opening a bag and throwing food into an oven is quicker. So I always have a bag of these on hand.
Note the servings size, which means 5 servings per bag. I’ll tell you that’s bullshit. A serving of fries is TEENY TINY. Nobody eats that few fries, least of all us. The serving size is more like 3 per bag. At 190 calories per regular serving and 9 g of fat that really starts to add up. Hence I don’t recommend these be an everyday food item! Which is pretty much what it says on the bag.
No idea why the hell you’d want to add butter and maple syrup for a sweet treat unless you wanted a heart attack at an early age? Seriously wtf? Anyway as you can see these are crispy coated sweet potatoes so there is a seasoning on them which makes them nice and crispy when cooked long enough. They recommend 18-22 mins at 425° but I find they take around 25 minutes, which allows for the full portion 😉
I use our countertop halogen convection oven we got from amazon for most of our cooking, for two people this thing is PERFECT. Our stove doesn’t get used much as it means heating a whole oven for 2 portions of chips, and the toaster ovens are too small. These suckers give me the choice of putting things on the bottom shelf to heat then the top to crisp and brown. Plus the timer makes things super easy. I love it.
All in all when cooked long enough these Sweet potato fries from Trader Joes are lovely as an accompaniment to a meal, but watch the portion size due to calories and fat content.
Are you meat free on mondays?
