Oh, french fries….I truly can never have enough.

I adore all varieties and am always eager to experiment with new versions. I whipped up these Baked Cornmeal Crusted Sweet Potato Fries one day when I had not planned my meals for the day and needed a tasty, year healthy side dish to serve my kids’ with their hot dogs for dinner one night (don’t judge….they were organic, nitrate free ones at least).

I had some extra cornmeal sitting in my pantry and decided it might be fun to coat the fries with that instead of panko, which I had originally planned.

A few extra seasonings and these turned out delicious!

If I was feeling a bit more energetic that day, I would’ve come up with some tasty, yogurt based dip for them, but alas, I did not. So ketchup did the trick, and the fries were a hit.
