I love fries. It’s one of the best reasons I may go to a fast-food restaurant for the fries. And sweet potato fries were the rave a little bit ago but for me they still are. It’s something different to order at a restaurant other than a fast-food restaurant. They have a slight sweetness to them and with a few savory spices it will balance that sweetness. I serve them with a simple aioli but feel free to change up the spices used to make the fries and aioli. The possibilities are many.
Canola Oil (you can substitute melted butter if desired)
Salt and Pepper
1 ½ tsp Garlic Powder
½ tsp Smoked Paprika
4 tsp Cornstarch
¼-1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
Parsley, finely chopped for garnish if desired
Spicy Aioli –
½ cup Mayonnaise
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
3 tsp Spicy Brown Mustard
1-2 Garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp Hot Paprika
Salt and Pepper
Preheat oven to 425
In a small bowl mix together salt and pepper, garlic powder, smoked paprika and cornstarch. In a large bowl or on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet, drizzle the oil or melted butter to coat the fries. Sprinkle the fries with the spice cornstarch mixture until well coated.
Roast the fries for about 10-15 minutes. Then flip or turn over the fries oven to cook the other side. (this will help to bake crispier fries on the outside). Bake for another 10-15 minutes until crisps but not burnt (because of the sugar content in sweet potatoes don’t burn them)
Note: to say a little time, place the fries on a cooking rack on a baking sheet and this will cook on both sides without having to flip them.
While the fries are baking, make the aioli sauce if using. In a small bowl combine all the ingredients and thoroughly mix together.
Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley. Serve immediately with the aioli sauce on the side.
Enjoy … gathering around the table with family and friends
