I am a sucker for fries, of any kind. That’s actually my favorite thing at McDonald’s. Yes, I said it, calm down…I do enjoy the occasional McDonald’s fry. 

While I LOVE fries, I’ve never been a fan of frozen ones that you can cook at home. They just don’t have the same deep fried goodness to them.

sweet potato fries Over the last year, though, I’ve discovered that I LOVE making sweet potato fries at home. And guess what? So do my kids! Ladies and gentleman, we call this a WIN WIN situation in our home! The only problem that ever arises when making these is that I usually never make ENOUGH!

I’ve experimented with a bunch of recipes and flavors, as well as oven temperatures and cook time and I think I’ve landed on what I would humbly call, the perfect sweet potato fries recipe.

Now sweet potato fries are good on their own, but add in a garlic aioli and your taste buds won’t want to quit! While we call this a southwest style aioli, there is a surprise ingredient in there that is not traditionally a southwest flavor…but man, does it ever take this dip to the next level.

So next time you are BBQ’ing some burgers up and are jonesing for some fries to go alongside, try these clean and healthy sweet potato fries and southwest garlic aioli (ok, so the aioli isn’t exactly clean, but clean-ish).
