baked sweet potato fries w. dipping sauce

One of my favourite things are baked sweet potato fries. While this has kept me interested for long enough, recently i have started to make my own dipping sauce based on the chili mayo.

start off by making the sweet potato fries. Follow the recipe on baked roots

slice up the potatoes, into wedges. (or fries or whatever shape you want)
put in bowl filled with ice cold water. (something to do with the starchs in potato.)
drain the water, pat dry.
coat potatoes in a little bit of in olive oil. (not that much is needed…so try it a few times and you can find out how much you want.)
lay potatoes on a baking tray.
put into oven at 420 F.
after 15 minutes, use spatula to make sure they are not stuck.
bake for another 20 minutes.
keep half an eye on the potatoes and make sure they don’t burn.
bake to the crispness that you want them.
season with salt and pepper.

Now for the sauce i simple mixed up

1 tbs of sour cream
1 tbs of mayonaise
1 tsp of chipotle powder
2 tsp of sweet chili sauce

try it out. im sure you will be making this all the time.


  1. For some reason mine just would not crisp and look as beautiful as yours above! They did taste fantastic if looking a little tragic

  2. meagan. they never get super crispy like normal fries, but they are delicious anyways. if you do the heat from above and cook a little longer i find they can get a bit crisper.
