Roasted Parmesan Sweet Potatoes – 31 Days of Fall Flavor Recipe #11

I ♥ sweet potato fries!!  Sweet potatoes are a great source of  beta-carotene which is converted into an active vitamin A in the body.  They are also good sources of vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese and potassium.  Compared to their cousin, the french fry, sweet potato fries are full of flavor and are actually pretty good for you.  Take that McDonalds!!!!  I love to pair them with a marinated veggie burger topped with delicious cheeses and fresh veggies.  Best part is, most kids can be tricked into eating them with just the right seasoning.  For a guilt free side dish on burger night, these sweet potato squares are simple and delicious.  You can find the original recipe at teeniecakes.com.
