One batata, two batata


This is a picture of the package of french-fried sweet potatoes I am making.

I'm going to translate, to the best of my ability the directions on the back of the package:

1. Preheat the oven.

2. Place the potatoes on a pan in one layer.

3. Turn them to have even browning.

4. Take them out when they have reached the desired state.

It's funny- a couple of items of information seem to be missing:

Preheat the oven to what temperature? Cook them how long, approximately? I guess it doesn't matter. My oven only has "high" and "low" anyway- no temperatures.

I LOVE french fried sweet potatoes! How did those turn out? I've never seen frozen ones available in our supermarkets, maybe haven't looked hard enough. I've had them only in restaurants.

Hi Jennifer,

The fries turned out fine. Sweet potatoes are more popular in Argentina than the U.S., so they offer them a lot in restaurants as well. A little bit healthier than regular potatoes as well, as far as carbs go. :)
