Delicious Sweet Potato Fries!!!
If you’re looking for something a little different to serve your family, try these sweet potato fries! They are so delicious, quick and easy, even a little healthier than regular fries.
There’s nothing better than hot french fries, especially on the weekend. Sometimes when we’d had a busy week and especially weekend, which happened a lot during the summer due to our huge garden, Mom would make us chicken nuggets and french fries for dinner. It was such fun for us 5 kids and we loved stirring together fry sauce just like Mom taught us. I had never even considered that many people don’t have a clue about fry sauce and instead stick to plain, ol’ ketchup. What?! That is totally not how it was at our house. Mom was all about that fry sauce she had discovered in Idaho and Utah. Now that we live in Utah I can’t imagine a restaurant not carrying it.
Sweet potato fries are awesome with fry sauce since it’s a little more creamy and delicate with that sweet fry taste, but I really love them with a bbq sauce and mayonnaise spread instead of the traditional ketchup and mayo. Whatever you pick will be great though as long as you’ve got these fries to go with it!
