Sweet Potato Fries With Swiss & Gruyère

Sweet Potato Fries

While we are all being ‘Alone Together’, I find I am really missing some of my favorite restaurants and foods they made. One of the things I miss is sweet potato fries. While I don’t fry at home, I decided to make them my healthy baked way. Coating the fries in egg whites gives them the crunchy outside without the fat. Then topping them with a lovely sauce of cheese didn’t make me feel so bad. They were really delicious!

Sweet Potato Fries
2 sweet potatoes
1 egg white
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp ground pepper
Cooking spray

Swiss & Gruyere Sauce
2 Tbs butter
1 1/2 Tbs flour
1 cup milk
4 slices American cheese
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1 cup shredded Gruyère cheese

Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a sheet pan with cooking spray (I use coconut oil) and place in the oven while it’s preheating. Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into fry-size pieces. Whisk the egg white with the garlic salt, onion powder and pepper. Toss the cut fries in the egg whites making sure to coat them all. Pull the sheet pan out of the oven and arrange the fries on the sheet pan so that they are not touching. Cook for 20-25 minutes.

While the fries are cooking, melt the butter in a small pot. Add the flour and cook an additional minute. Add the milk and bring to a simmer. Starting with the American cheese, (I find it to be a great cheese sauce stabilizer), begin to add until it melts in the milk, then add the Swiss and last the Gruyère. Season sauce with a pinch of salt and a healthy amount of pepper. When the fries are done, top with cheese sauce… Yummmm!

Enjoy!
