When we were on vacation in Texas this summer we were staying at a friend's house. One night while we were sitting around talking he had an episode of Grill It with Bobby Flay playing in the background. Cassie always has an issue of paying full attention to either a conversation or the show playing when the T.V. is on, so her focus was swinging randomly between the two. When Bobby Flay started talking about some sweet potato fries her attention was caught for the time being and she watched the recipe. That night we ran to the grocery store and got the ingredients to make these fries for dinner.
Now months and months later armed with only a faint memory of the recipe we decided to go ahead and try to recreate them at home using our oven rather than the grill. The grill would have been great, but we only have a cast iron grill pan and no large outdoor grill. We were not up to trying to grill these. We would have had to work in small batches and it would have taken WAY too long. So we adapted this recipe for the oven and I think we did a pretty good job recreating it. The flavors that caught us the first time around were all there again and it was much easier to do.
Honey Mustard Glazed Oven Fries
Adapted from Grill It with Bobby Flay
2 medium sweet potatoes scrubbed and cut into thin wedges
1 T. canola oil
1-2 T. McCormick Grill Mates Cinnamon Chipotle Rub (or any other chipotle cinnamon mixture you can find/make)
4 T. dijon mustard
2 T. honey
1) Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly brush the sweet potatoes with canola oil and line them up on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the cinnamon chipotle rub over the fries, making sure they have a nice thin coat.
2) Bake the fries in the oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile in a small bowl mix the dijon mustard and the honey. Remove from the fries from the oven and brush both sides of the fries with the mustard mixture. Return to the oven to bake approximately another 15 minutes until slightly crispy and the glaze is nicely browned.
