    I feel like the sweet potato really made a come back in the last decade. For a while, it was a vegetable that only made an appearance around Thanksgiving, but they now grace menus all over the place from the fanciest of the fancy right on down to fast food.

    I, too, have fallen prey to the sweet potato craze and make Garlic Parmesan Baked Sweet Potato Fries as a side… or even sometimes as a whole meal. I can’t be trusted when there is a baking sheet with fries on it.

    In Baltimore, a local restaurant tosses their lightly fried sweet potato fries in a blend of Cajun spices and brown sugar, making a sticky, sweet glaze.

    That recipe got the wheels turning. This Italian girl wanted to try something similar, but with my beloved garlic. Let me introduce you to Garlic Parmesan Baked Sweet Potato Fries!

    I decided to bake my fries for a couple of reasons. The main one being that deep-frying at home can be a bit of a chore and when you need to get dinner on the table the last thing you want to do is deal with is a pot of hot oil. The other reason is that it’s just plain healthier.

    Sweet potatoes are rich in beta carotene which your body then converts into Vitamin A. That then helps keep your skin healthy and your vision and eyes. They also contain lots of fiber and antioxidants which promote gut health.

    While most would toss their sweet potato fries and then cook, I actually prefer my sweet potato topping not to be cooked. Raw garlic and herbs will retain more of the super healthy benefits of both and also maximize the flavor.

    If you want more of a muted flavor or you are making these for a hot date, then toss before and bake with garlic parmesan topping on. The garlic will get nice and toasty in the oven – almost caramelizing and the herbs will release all of their delicious oils.

    Try dipping yours in Green Goddess Dressing or Creamy Italian as a dipping sauce.
