Swapping My Fries With #OreIdaFries

My family loves french fries!`I don't mind giving them the ones that I can bake in the oven. At least they are a little healthier than the greasy oil ridden ones.

I went to my local Sams Club and was amazed that 8lbs of fries were only $6.25. Now, I'm not going to feed these to family every day. Once a week, maybe. An 8lb bag will last us a long time.

Then, things got interesting. I spotted Ore-Ida Sweet Potato Fries by Heinz. I absolutely love sweet potato fries, so, I bought both!

It was interesting to read on the bags that both items are products of the U.S.A and they are both gluten-free. But, the one thing that really won me over was the fact that the Ore-Ida Sweet Potato Fries by Heinz are a good source of Beta Carotene.

The finished meal was steak, carrots and 2 kinds of fries. (Don't worry. I did not eat that whole steak myself) The sweet potato fries were my favorite part of the meal. My oldest son wasn't too sure about eating orange fries but my youngest loved them! I am definitely going to try and incorporate them into our meals, more often.

I think next time I will either try sprinking them with a little brown sugar for added sweetness or some taco seasoning to make them sweet and spicy!
