Sweet Potato Fries


Until recently I haven’t really enjoyed sweet potatoes. I think my last pregnancy helped. I still don’t looooove them in some dishes, but I do love Savannah’s sweet potatoes, and sweet potato fries.  We had one sad little sweet potato one day and I was trying to figure out a meal to incorporate it. We decided on Chik Fil-A style chicken (see thursday’s post) and sweet potater fries. I threw in some pumpkin pie spice on a whim and it was pretty much genius. They were crispy on the outside, tender and fluffy on the inside and ohhhh that warm spice from the pumpkin pie seasoning. It’s delicious. I’m sold. Totally sold.

Yes, you are correct that there is no dipping sauce shown. Well, I made them to go with the chicken so you’ll see them tomorrow. However, one of them we only ate with the fries because it just went together better. You guys, the dipping sauce is so flippin’ good with these. I tell you no lies.

Perfectly crisp on the outside and tender in the center french fries just like our favorite takeout, and special sauce is amazing, ridiculously amazing.

  • Can't wait to try these! I love sweet potato fries but mine have always been a bit soggy, sounds like this might be the solution! Dipping sauce is so simple but sounds delish! Thanks, Chris

  • Oh I like the rack idea, I haven't tried that. I always have problems with soggy sweet potato fries and that's probably why.
