Updated: Jun 10, 2019
Who loves yam fries?! I do! These fries have a wonderful flavour and, in my opinion, taste better than any restaurant yam fries.
This recipe is one of my mom's. I modified it to use a yam instead of golden potatoes.
This recipe is so easy to prepare you'll be eating fries in no time!
