Baked Sweet Potato ‘Big Boss’ Fries and Onion Rings

What a joy not to have to deal with heating the oven, using more oil than I want to, and cleaning up after making baked sweet potato fries.  I LOVE my Big Boss oil-less fryer!

Tonight I made two of my favorites that I would rarely eat had it not been for this low-fat way of making them. In addition to Sweet Potato Fries, I made Onion Rings.  YUM!

Earlier in the day I prepared my Cheesy Eggplant No Noodle Lasagna (non-dairy) to pop in the oven 35 minutes before dinner.

This is the second time I am making this recipe, which I created when everyone wanted Lasagna Roll-Ups a week or so ago.  I try to steer away from pasta (even whole grain) since the carbs a little too high for me.. and this was such a hit with J, that I made a larger tray today expecting to share it again.

Big Boss Sweet Potato Fries

  • 2 large organic Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cut into thin fries
  • Salt, sprinkle lightly over potatoes
  • 1 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 2 tsp. Garlic Salt
  • 1 Tbs. extra virgin Olive Oil

Toss everything together in a large bowl to coat. Feel free to adjust seasoning to taste.

Place tall rack in Big Boss oven.  Place one layer of potatoes in the mesh tray, and put on rack.

Place cover on oven and turn temperature to 450º.  Lock handle and bake for 12-14 minutes, until edges of potatoes turn brown.Remove to a plate, and bake the rest of the potatoes the same way.  Serves 4 – 6.

Big Boss Onion Rings

  • 2 large organic red or white Sweet Onions (I like the flatter ones for rings)
  • 1/4 c. finely  crushed Corn or Multi-grain cereal flakes ( I use a mortar and pestle)
  • 1/4 c. Barely, Rye, or Whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbs. toasted Bread Crumbs (whole grain or gluten-free)
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1 High Omega-3 Egg
  • 2 Tbs. Rice or Almond Milk

Slice onions into 1/4″ thick rings.

Mix dry ingredients together in a flat-bottomed bowl.

Mix egg and milk together in a separate bowl.

Place tall rack in Big Boss oven, and mesh tray on top.

Dip onion rings in egg mixture, then cover with dry mix and place on tray in a single layer.  P.S. Since I started these just as everyone got to the table, I mixed the two together and dipped the rings in the batter, to speed the process… but that was a mistake since the batter stuck to the mesh basket, and made a mess. But the rings tasted great anyway!

Bake at 450º for 10-12 minutes, or until golden. Repeat with the rest of the onion rings.

 ~ Enjoy!
