The Best Sweet Potato Fries
How can I claim that this is, without a doubt, the best Sweet Potato Fries recipe; in short, I can’t. But I can say that, after trying these fries, I couldn’t imagine that they get any better. And one of the things that I’ve, personally, figured out about cooking and eating fried sweet potatoes is that you want to keep it simple. The real secret is in the sauce or in this case sauce’s!
Sauce for Sweet Potato Fries
First off, you may have noticed that my Sweet Potato Fries look like regular French Fries but they’re not. Sweet Potatoes aren’t all orange, they’re white too. And, just to clear the air, Yams and Sweet Potatoes are pretty much the same thing. In all honesty, I think that the orange color in Yams make beautiful fries and I would rather have used them instead for the purpose is of this blog post because I think they’re prettier to look at. But for the same purpose of this post, I intentionally used the white Sweet Potatoes to prove the point that it doesn’t really matter which one you choose to use. Either or, they will both taste the same. And like I already mentioned, the real secret is in the sauce.
I make both a Spicy Mayo and a Barbecue Fry Sauce and in truth, I think you’ll like the Barbecue Fry Sauce the best. By now, the world has become very familiar with the spicy mayo and they’ve already decided whether or not they like it. Plus, if you’re not a fan of spicy food, you’re most likely going to prefer the barbecue. It’s very simple to make and it really compliments the Sweet Potato Fries. And though I didn’t add it to the ingredients list, you might want to add a touch of Sesame Oil. So, definitely give that one a try.
Sweet Potato Fries Ingredients:
1 Sweet Potato, Orange or White
Season Salt to taste
Barbecue Fry Sauce
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
3 tbsp Barbecue Sauce
1/2 tsp Soy Sauce
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
1 1/2 tbsp Sriracha
Pealing the Sweet Potato is optional, but you want to cut the ends off, then slice into 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices. Fry at 350 degrees for 6 to 8 Minutes then place on paper towels. Immediately Salt with Seasoned Salt before the Sweet potato Fries cool down. This allows the seasoning to stick better. For the dipping Sauces, just mix all the ingredients for each one and stir until it’s smooth, then serve your Sweet Potato Fries.
