My favorite foods include sweet potatoes, butter, salt and cheese. So why not throw them all together into kick-ass cheese fries. I know you’re thinking “Oh my God, fries, cheese, that doesn’t sound healthy!” Well, I get that a lot and you’re wrong.
First of all, you doubt what I would share?! Whatever, I’m over it. Sweet potatoes have numerous health benefits from being a great source of energy, to providing beta-carotene and anti-viral properties. Ghee is amazing. It’s the best fat, helps protect your neurons and is just so satisfying. It’s also a necessary component for optimal digestion of the sweet potatoes. You want some fat with those sweet potatoes. And just in case, I didn’t use enough ghee, I like to melt some cheese on top. Always grass fed, always raw. I know it won’t be raw at the end. But I think there’s a difference between putting some raw cheese in an oven for 5 minutes versus pasteurizing.
In conclusion, these are easy to make. There’s virtually no prep time. Especially if you’re like me and didn’t wash the potatoes. They’re good for you. And they taste impeccable. My only issue in making these is that I have to wait for them to cool. Let me know what you guys think and if you have any tricks you’d like to share on creating the best mother fuckin’ cheese fries.
Use your handy dandy french fry cutter to cut the potato. The smaller the fries, the crunchier they’ll get. Preheat the oven to 450.
Place the fries on a baking sheet with ghee. I like to set them on the oven to melt the ghee. Total ghee coverage is crucial. Add salt.
Spread the fries as far away from each other as you can. No touching!
Place in the oven, bottom rack
After 7 minutes, take them out and flip. Put them back in the oven.
Seven more minutes, and flip. Turn the oven down to 400.
Seven and flip, and then 7 more minutes and you’re done! Now’s the time to slice the cheese.
Turn off the oven. Remove fries. Place cheese on fries, focusing on High Impact Areas. That’s where the fries cross.
Place the fries back in the off oven for 5 minutes or so. Until the cheese is melted.
