My Yummy Local Life

{February 16, 2010}   Sweet Potato Fries

My husband went out to the N. Raleigh Farmer’s Market on Saturday to meet up with Karl and collect or beef CSA box for the month.  Bobby from Cane Creek Farms was also there, and had a lot of meat and potatoes, so he came home with a large assortment of potatoes: sweet, russets and reds.

I made Kaiser Rolls on Saturday/Sunday so that we could have something to eat hamburgers on, and on the side we made sweet potato fries.  This is the easiest and most fabulous way to have sweet potatoes and when I realized that I hadn’t shared this with you yet, I just had to post it!

Sweet Potato Fries


1 large sweet potato (per two people) (from Cane Creek Farms)

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Kosher Salt


  1. Cut sweet potato into strips about ½ inch thick. (Peel first if desired, but I usually leave the skin on)
  2. In a large bowl, toss in EVOO to coat.
  3. Spread on a large sheet pan, then sprinkle with salt.
  4. Bake at 475F for 30-60 minutes, until they are crisp to your liking. Flip about half-way through the cooking time.

Chipotle Mayo Dipping Sauce


2 chipotles in adobe sauce

1 cup mayonnaise

lemon juice, to taste

salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Dice up the chipotles as small as possible.
  2. Mix together mayonnaise and chipotles. (You can also use half mayo and half sour cream.)
  3. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.

So our “all-American” homemade meal included: hamburgers (meat from Rare Earth Farms) topped with Pepper Jack Cheese (from Homeland creamery), sliced avocado, and chipotle mayo on homemade Kaiser rolls; sweet potato fries and chipotle mayo for dipping; and a half a can each of “Throwback” Pepsi (made with real sugar).  YUMMY!
