We'll show you how to adapt you favorite bar food for the trail: Mushroom-Asiago Veggie Burgers, Spicy Sweet Potato Fries, Hot Spinach & Artichoke Dip, and Toasted Tortilla Chips.
Spicy Sweet Potato Fries
2-3 medium sweet potatoes
Olive or canola oil (optional)
Seasonings such as onion powder, Italian seasoning, and/or seasoning salt
Place potatoes in paper bag.
Peel sweet potatoes, then cut into 2-inch strips. Coat a large skillet with oil. In batches, add sweet potatoes and sprinkle with sea salt and seasonings. Fry until browned on both sides, about 10-15 minutes. Remove to a plate and top with additional seasonings, if desired. Serves 4-6.
Note: To bake fries, wrap them in foil along with the seasonings and place the packet directly on hot coals; omit the oil.
