Crispy sweet potato fries! I love them soooo much that I’ve deleted my old post (of sweet potato fries) feeling that it didn’t do them justice. Better, sweeter, and more addictive! Watch out …
Something I’ve always struggled with is making my sweet potato fries crispy. You know … like fries should to be… When you look at this perfect little root vegetable, you realise that beside the name (and arguably the shape), it really doesn’t have much in common with it’s distant cousin (ze old potato). So how can we ever hope to make them as crispy as regular fries?
Well don’t worry, I have your back. We will still able to achieve a nice level of crispiness, without compromising the taste of the yams. Now, what you get from sweet potato fries is quite different than ‘regular’ fries.
Spicy savouriness (whether it’s a word or not, whatever)
Dip them in some homemade Cajun Mayo and you are in for a treeeeeattt!
However, if ultra crispy is your aim, yuca fries are your game.
Pictured above is definitely my favourite way of eating them: drowning in spicy mayo.
My girlfriend goes crazy for them. They’re one of her all-time favourite foods, and living in Montréal for almost a decade, I’ve learned to love them just as much.
