Sweet Potato Irish Fries

Sweet Potato Irish Fries from KatiesCucina.com #recipe #Irish #fries #StPatricksDay

I’m back with another fry recipe. I would like to say that I feel like this one is a little healthier with fresh sweet potatoes not a frozen pre-packaged fry.  Clearly, I think the world can tell what I’m craving. At 36/37 weeks pregnant I’m still all about fries. Over the weekend, I went to the annual Southeast Produce Conference. This has been my goal my whole pregnancy. I just needed to make it past my husbands Birthday (which was last Thursday) and make it to SEPC. After that the baby was free to come (well I really want him to bake a few more weeks, but you get my point). While at SEPC I got to see all sorts of new product out in the market. While visiting the Mann Foods booth I saw crinkle cut sweet potatoes.

Say WHAT!??!? I had to get my hands on them, so a few seconds later they were in my cart and hours later in my fridge. The next day, I was hungry and craving fries like I do often and decided to make an “Irish” like recipe with my crinkle-cut sweet potato fries. Earlier that morning while at the grocery store I stopped by the deli to pick up a few slices of corned beef.

I received a few blocks of Cabot Cheese last week in the mail and decided to shred up a block of the Seriously Sharp Cheddar and use some of it for my sweet potato Irish fries recipe. I seriously love using my Magimix to shred cheese. It’s done in no time. What’s one more thing to clean? Especially if it means I’ll have a block of cheese shredded in like 10 seconds. I kid you not.

So as my husband was busy in the garage working on building the dresser (yes, he is building the baby’s dresser from scratch and it looks amazing–oh and I may have helped a little, too), I figured we needed a “snack”. This past Sunday was all about snacking and not so much about one big lunch per say. I baked up these beauties and had our snack ready in no time. We sat outside since the weather was gorgeous here in Florida (sorry for all those who are knee-deep in snow) and chowed down on these Sweet Potato Irish Fries.

I want to preface and say that I have no clue if people in Ireland snack on sweet potatoes. I’ve never traveled, although its on my list of places to visit. I just know that I loved the crinkle-cut sweet potatoes and I loved loading them up with cheddar cheese, corned beef, and green onions. The sweet and salty played so well together, and I can’t wait to go back to the store and stock up on these pre-cut “fries”!
