Rosemary Yam Fries

READY IN: 1hr 15mins


  • 2
    tablespoons olive oil
  • 1
    tablespoon butter, melted
  • 4
    medium yams
  • 12
    teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3
    teaspoons dried rosemary (chop the rosemary into smaller pieces if children will shy away from eating the rosemary)


  • Preheat oven to 410 degrees and line a few baking sheets with foil for easy clean up.
  • Wash the yams and cut them into wedge-like pieces, lengthwise. Put the wedges into a mixture of the olive oil, salt, butter and rosemary. Bake the wedges for 25-30 minutes and then flip wedges over and bake for another 25-30 minutes. They are ready when "the edges of the wedges" have shriveled and browned on the edges some. The yams' sugar seeps out of the yams and caramelizes naturally when ready.
  • I suggest making a double batch as you will be surprised how fast these get eaten!
