Baked Spiced Yam Steak Fries

Spiced Yam Steak Fries

I was at our local market the other day and saw some sweet potatoes and yams, side by side in bowls. As I stood there with gaping mouth, looking at the two bowls, I recalled reading somewhere recently, that yams are supposed to be sweeter. I placed 3 medium sized yams in my cart.

When I place something in my cart at the store, it is sometimes just a thought bubble, and does not have a purpose right away. I picked these yams up however, with a delicious purpose in mind. A few minutes before I was at the meat counter and added some Painted Hill organic ground beef to my cart. And that morning, I baked two loaves of heavenly bread that tasted amazing toasted.

I went home and baked spiced yam steak fries. They were delicious with our  grilled  hamburgers, served open faced, on toasted pieces of my heavenly homemade bread.
