Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato Fries

SERVES 2-4

Ingredients 
2-4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into fries
1 cup cornstarch
1 pack Italian dressing seasoning
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. salt
2 qt. canola oil, for frying

Directions

  1. Soak the cut fries in water for 10 minutes. Drain.
  2. Dredge the fries in the cornstarch (you may need more depending on the size of your potatoes).
  3. Place the Copper Chef on medium-high heat and fill with canola oil halfway. Heat to 365o F.
  4. Carefully place the fry basket into the pan. Caution: the oil will be HOT. In batches, add the fries. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes to blanch, then pull them up to drain. For best results, never overfill the fry basket.
  5. Drop them again into the hot oil and cook until lightly golden.
  6. Shake off excess oil.
  7. In a large bowl, mix brown sugar, black pepper, salt and Italian seasoning.
  8. Toss the fries to season.

Eric’s Tip: Think outside of the box for some interesting dips like spicy sriracha ketchup, salsa ranch dip, or honey maple mustard.
