Springtime…I offer you sweet potato fries festooned with pawfuls of black sesame seeds and sparked up with a salty brown sugar and cinnamon mix.
Remember me? I threw you a mini party last week when you dropped by.
I had a snazzy hat at hand to shade your sudden sunbursts. We toasted with a crispy chardonnay and made woo-woo eyes at the Weber.
I was amped, dudette. What happened?
I know we ran out of fries. I made more.
Summary: Baked sweet potato fries slathered in sesame oil and seasoned with black sesame seeds, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt
- 1 sweet potato
- 1/2 Tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon Vietnamese cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 Tablespoon black sesame seeds
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees, rack in middle.
- Use a silpat sheet to line a baking tray if you have one. Makes cleaning up super easy.
- Peel and chop the sweet potato.
- In a small bowl mix brown sugar, cinnamon and salt together and set aside.
- Toss fries in sesame oil. I do this right on the baking sheet.
- Dump the sugar, cinnamon, salt mixture onto the fries and toss to coat.
- Sprinkle fries with black sesame seeds and gently turn them to get the seeds stuck onto the fries.
- Bake for 30-34 minutes. I like to wait for the tips of fries to begin to brown.
- Let cool for a few minutes.
- Offer some fries to Springtime. Look balefully at Weber grill.
I wrote this recipe for a single serving because it’s very easy to adjust up. I use one sweet potato per person. Vietnamese cinnamon is an intense spice so if you’re using regular cinnamon you may want to add an extra 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to your mix. These are not a super crispy version of fries but they set up a bit when you let them cool. Works out really well in my humble opinion.
