Sweet Something

One of my favorite things to make is fried garlic sweet potatoes!

A friend make these for me and I have developed my own way to make them that is absolutely amazing. They are  simple to make, and only take about 20 mins which makes them the perfect side for any meal. Sweet potatoes are high in vitamins and minerals, and don’t contain empty calories like white potatoes, and they are considered paleo.

Here is the recipe:

Start with a pan heated to medium.

Cover bottom with olive oil and add garlic salt, garlic powder and pepper (as much or as little as you like).


Try to scrub clean and cut out any bad spots.


Slice a white sweet potato in 1/4″ thick slices. Try to be as consistent as possible.

Lay flat in pan making sure that each slice in touching the pan.


Cook on medium-low for about 12 minutes. Flip and cook for 5-7 minutes or until both sides are golden brown. This will leave the slice soft and warm in the middle and the outside crispy.

Simply let cook a little longer on each side for a crispier version.

TIP: Listen for a crackle from the oil. this means it is time to flip.


Yum!! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
