Kiki’s Kitchen: Sweet Potato Fries w/ Dill Dipping Sauce

The craze for sweet potato fries is taking over the menus of many restaurants. The first time I tried these sweet and salty fries was at Taylor’s Refresher in Napa Valley, CA. I was hooked after one bite! I decided to whip up a batch on a whim. I complimented the salty and sweet of the fries with a cool and refreshing dill dipping sauce. One word – YUM!

Step 1: Wash and place clean sweet potatoes on a cutting board.

Step: 2 Peel the sweet potatoes

Step 3: Slice the sweet potatoes in half and then slice them again creating fries.

Step 4: In a large mixing bowl, mix together the sweet potatoes, oil, and your favorite seasonings. 

STEP 5: Place well-seasoned fries on a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Bake at 450 degrees for 20 min.

Serve hot and enjoy!!!
