Instead of using french fries as a side for you Super Bowl meals, give these Spiced Sweet Potato Fries a try. A sweet potato is sliced into fries and coated with olive oil, cardamom, cinnamon, and salt. They are baked and served with a mustard dipping sauce sweetened with maple syrup. I especially loved the pairing of the spiced fries with the dipping sauce. The Maple Mustard Dip was easy to put together, just two ingredients, and the maple was a nice substitute for the usual addition of honey.
The recipe is easily doubled, just make sure not to crowd the fries. Use two baking sheets if needed. If they are too close together, the fries won’t get a crisp coating.
The sweet potato can be peeled or left with the peel on before cutting into fries based on personal taste. I left the peel on to keep in extra nutrients.
