Everything bagels have always been a favorite of mine and I would snack on them everyday if I could, so it was only natural for me to find a way to make that happen. I wanted a gluten-free alternative so I came up with these baked everything yucca fries and they are delicious!

The 411 on Yucca. Yucca, also known as cassava, is a root vegetable. It is high in Vitamin C and antioxidants helping to boost your immune system. It is also known to help regulate blood sugar.

Yucca root can be sourced from Stop n’ Shop in most areas. When buying yucca root, choose one without any bruising. When cut open the yucca should be white. If there is any brown or black coloring throughout the yucca has gone bad. Small spots can be cut out.
