Do you have some uncooked sweet potatoes left over from Christmas? Not sure what to do with them? Make them into fries! This is so simple and easy, I am embarrassed to say I have never made this until a few years ago when a friend introduced this to me.
You can cut them long.
Or you can cut them short.
But, either way, you have a fast and easy side dish. Most kids like sweet potatoes and for some reason, putting them into stick form seems to go over better with the little ones.
