I know in America you all have this custom around the holidays where you mush up sweet potatoes and cover them with marshmallows...Interesting, I've tasted it and I'm not a fan...

Lately however I have been making homemade sweet potato fries in the oven and have recently made yam fries. Both are excellent. A local restaurant here makes this dipping sauce that is phenomenal and I created my own version of it last night.

Here it is if you want to try it:

mayo
mustard
chili powder
paprika
cayenne
onion powder
garlic powder
freshly ground pepper
sea salt

I never measure when I cook so I guess you would put about a half cup of mayo, and 2 tablespoons of mustard and whisk it well...I would just put a dash of all the other stuff. It turned out really good and gives you a tangy sauce that balances the sweetness.

TRY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


P.S.- One should never be afraid to try new things!

I like sweet potatoes-about twice a year. I'm more a fan of them than white potatoes.
I have never had fries, though.
I think I would just dunk them in hot melted butter with fresh ground pepper and sea salt.

However, a butter brown sugar sauce might be good.

I saw sauces like that online where you sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar to carmelize them when they are baking...I just toss mine in olive oil and sea salt and bake like that.

Yes.... I love sweet tater fries.

I just coat them in olive oil and salt.....yummy.

I also like to eat them like a baked tater with loads of butter :))

I loooooove sweet potato fries, but I just top mine with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

(I'd probably love them with butter but the cinnamon's a lot kinder to my poor old diabetic/metabolic syndrome bod)

I suggest you all try yams...Make them just like you would sweet potato fries...You might like that Jalon...

Now I'm gonna have to try them with cinnamon on them...To me they don't need sugar anyway because I am sweet enough

I roast my sweet potato fries in the oven. I think the eating out places probably fry then and I don't like it as much.

I have to make the mashed sweet potatoes you spoke of but instead of marshmallow topping I make a pecan, coconut, brown sugar crunch topping that my kids demand every year.

If you have a mandolin, or a way to slice potatoes really thin, you can make a homemade potato chip. I line the sheet in foil, (makes cleanup easier) and spray with cooking spray. Very thin slices of peeled baked potato, ( you can do beets, too) and quick spray of Pam, and a sprinkle of koscher salt, preheated 400* oven, for about 15 min or till crispy.
