recipe: halloween fries in aioli sauce

My husband and I have been in love with sweet potato fries for over one decade- ever since our days of dating. We would often go to a restaurant for our dates and one or both of us more often than not ordered a side of these delicious fries with our meal. When we got married, our dates were less frequent and once we had children, well they became yearly instead of weekly. Thus, we started making sweet potato fries at home.

There are several different recipes for them, but they all basically include the same ingredients. One sweet potato, then oil, salt, and garlic. That’s it! They cook faster than homemade fries made from regular potatoes and are hard to mess up so long as you slice them thinly and cook over a high heat.

Serve with aioli sauce to elevate their flavour! It only takes a few minutes to prepare and it tastes amazing!

Halloween Fries in Aioli Sauce

Ingredients:

(For the fries)
1/4 cup oil (any kind)
1 large sweet potato
Salt
Pepper
Garlic powder

(For the sauce)
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper 

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Pour the oil onto a large cookie sheet. (If not using non-stick, you also may want to line with parchment paper as well.) Cut sweet potato in half, and begin to thinly slice using a large knife. Place fries onto cookie sheet and coat evenly with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

2. Place in oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until fries start to crisp. (They may require more or less time depending on your oven.) 

3. Prepare the sauce. Add all ingredients one by one into a measuring cup. Stir well, and place in fridge until fries have baked.

4. Once fries are done, remove them from the oven. Then serve still warm with the chilled aioli sauce. Hope you love them as much as we do!
