Sweet Potato Fries and Lemon Dilly Dip

I have recently grown to love sweet potato fries.  It doesn’t hurt that I found this recipe on allrecipes a while back and have since made it a few times.  They are my favorite sweet potato fries (I like them better than any sweet potato fries I’ve ever tried in a restaurant).

Here’s how I make them:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes (cut into thick fries)
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1 pinch of salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (using convection if you have a convection oven).
  2. Place cut sweet potatoes in a microwave-safe dish along with the tablespoon of water.  Put in the microwave on high power for 5 minutes.  Drain water.  
  3. Put the spices in a large Ziploc bag.  Add the potatoes then the olive oil.  Shake to coat all the fries. 
  4. Arrange fries in a single layer on a tinfoil-covered baking sheet.  Bake for 30 minutes total (15 minutes per side) or until fries are crispy on the outside.
  5. Enjoy

And of course, you need a dipping sauce to accompany these tasty fries.  This is a modification of a dip recipe I remember making many times when I was growing up:

  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup Miracle whip
  • 2 teaspoons dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning

Place all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until well blended.
