Sweet Potato Home Fries

Swapping out the usual potatoes for sweet potatoes gives this classic side dish a healthy boost.

Breakfast gets a little better with these sweet potatoes for breakfast. Homemade fries are a delicious touch to your typical homemade breakfast! A colorful plate of vibrant sweet potatoes and rich bell peppers will brighten up your breakfast plates and add extra flavor to your mornings!

I'm a huge fan of sweet potatoes, especially when they replace regular potatoes! I often order sweet potatoes instead of regular fries in restaurants, and it's easy to fry sweet potatoes in a pan until crispy at home.

However, savory breakfasts grab my attention more than sweet ones, so I use crispy Sweet Potato as the base for a tasty breakfast.

I think sweet potatoes are overlooked at brunch and breakfast. So, what are the first recipes that come to mind when you think of sweet potatoes? The Thanksgiving side of marshmallow-topped sweet potato puree? Or maybe sweet potato fries or potato chips.?

But sweet potatoes should also be on the breakfast table! And now you have a simple recipe to incorporate into your morning meals.

Why make sweet potato fries instead of baked potatoes? They have an extra warm flavor that you can't get from baked potatoes! There's an extra layer of flavor, a slightly denser texture, and a slight hint of sweetness.

Once you have these sweet potatoes, you won’t want to have baking potato home fries ever again!
