I have spent too much of my life making sweet potato fries with just salt and pepper. These french fries are the perfect mushy to crisp ratio with a ton of delicious flavor. It’s all in the spices, I tell ya!
A sprinkle of garlic powder, paprika, salt, pepper, cumin, dried basil, dried parsley and celery salt makes these the best sweet potato fries you’ve ever had. I prefer to take the easy way out. I slice my sweet potatoes, scatter the fries on a greased pan and spinkle with seasoning. Toss ’em around a bit and sprinkle a the rest of the seasoning.
If you’re less lazy than me, go ahead and toss your best ever sweet potato fries in the seasoning in a bowl before scattering on your pan for a 360° seasoning effect.
Obviously these fries are great for snacking right off the pan, but I also love pairing them with a burger or sandwich. My favorite? Putting them atop a hamburger salad. It’s one of the easiest dinners in our house; right under the ONE BOWL SPRING ROLL.
The magic mix of a hamburger salad? Romaine lettuce, a grilled burger, tomatoes, pickles, best ever sweet potato fries and a drizzle of spicy mustard. BOOM!
