These healthy sweet potato fries are seasoned with garlic and basil, and baked in the oven until crispy. They are served with a spicy sriracha mayo dipping sauce.
If you are one of those folks who always asks to substitute regular french fries with sweet potatoes, then this dish is for you: homemade baked sweet potato fries seasoned with your favorite spices and herbs. It’s easy to customize the flavors to your liking; here, I used garlic, basil, and paprika, but you can dress them up however you like. The dipping sauce is a simple mayo and sriracha combination, which adds a nice hint of spiciness to the fries.
The most time-consuming (and difficult) part of making sweet potato fries is slicing them up. After that, it’s easy — just toss them in seasonings and roast them. When slicing, I typically cut each sweet potato in half lengthwise so that they are more manageable. Then I carefully slice them about 1/4 inch thick. It’s important to slice them to approximately the same width so that they will have similar baking times.
