Pumpkin Spiced Sweet Potato Fries

Thanksgiving festivities are bearing down on us, and as the holiday draws nearer, you’re surely planning your meal menus. There’s nothing wrong with classic sweet potato casserole and candied yams, but there’s surely a place for this modernized version of those dishes, even if it’s as a snack during Thanksgiving football!

I love sweet potatoes, and I love French fries, and whoever came up with the idea to turn sweet potatoes INTO fries was a true genius! These fries are so easy to whip up, not to mention eat while kicking back as the turkey roasts away in the oven.

You’re likely already going to have sweet potatoes in the house, so why not throw together a batch of these to keep your family’s bellies happy while they wait to dig in to your amazing Thanksgiving dinner?

The fries themselves are perfectly seasoned with a combination of cinnamon, sugar, and pumpkiny spices, and combined with the caramel marshmallow dipping sauce, they are very reminiscent of the popular gooey sweet potato casserole that will be on many holiday tables.

  7. Combine caramel and marshmallow sauce in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 15 seconds.
