Gosh, what can ya say, fried sweet potatoes and spicy mayo? Is there anything better? This recipe is ridiculously easy and quick to make and dude was it good. It was definitely made even easier with the deep fryer that I bought a few weeks ago, but to be honest I think you could bake’e, and get pretty close to the same results as I did. Instead of submerging them in hot fryer oil, simply coat them in a few tablespoons of olive oil and bake at 400° for 15 to 20 minutes or until crispy. Out of this Sweet Potato Fries Recipe with Sriracha Mayonnaise, I’m not sure what is better, the fries or the mayo. I guess I’ll say it, the mayo is flippin awesome and would be amazing with anything, chicken tender, veggies, regular fries, you name it, it will work! If you have a deep fryer at home, this isn’t a question of if you should make it, it’s a question of when you should make it! Also, this is a must try along with this Umami Grilled Turkey Burger Recipe.
On a side note, I was really happy with how the photos turned out.
A quick green onion garnish did just the trick for that little extra love in the dish. If you love all things fries then for sure check out this Parmesan Truffle Fries Recipe.
