Yam Fries

 

Yam fries are currently my favorite side dish and snack. ย I’ll usually make a double batch of these babies and use a portion to go with whatever I’m making for dinner that night and use the rest to snack on in the coming days. ย They taste great served hot or cold straight out of the fridge! Really!

This recipe is a DG creation.
