“Complement any meal with chef Spike Mendelsohn's(one of Top Chef's participants and owner of Good Stuff Eatery in Washington, D.C.) sweet potato fries, a side dish he created in celebration of the 2009 inauguration of Barack Obama. I got this from Oprah Winfrey's website.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make fries:
  2. Cut sweet potatoes lengthwise, then cut into french fries. I like them skinny.
  3. Chop sage into small pieces.
  4. Place cut sweet potatoes on a cookie sheet, in a single layer.
  5. Drizzle olive oil.
  6. Spread brown sugar, sea salt and cracked black pepper over potatoes.
  7. Bake in oven at 350° for 30=40 minutes, or until a fork can poke through easily.
  8. Once out of the oven, sprinkle chopped sage, let cool and serve.
  9. To make Sriracha Mayonnaise:
  10. In a food processor, combine mayonnaise, Sriracha, cream and salt.
  11. Mix for 2 to 3 minutes until thick and creamy. Don't overmix. Serve as a dipping sauce for fries(also good with onion rings and fish).
  12. To make Herb Mayonnaise:
  13. In a food processor, combine mayonnaise, herbs and sea salt.
  14. Mix for 2 to 3 minutes until all ingredients are well blended.
  15. Serve as a dipping sauce for fries or onion rings(also good with fish).
