I’m continuing my ‘BBQ Basics Made In A Blender’ series with Blendtec, and over on the Blendtec Blog you will find my Homemade Fry Sauce recipe. It is phenomenal. I’m a huge sweet potato fry fan and while it’s easy to just buy a package of fries from the store, it’s just as easy to make them at home yourself! I’ve said it over and over again, I love making things at home instead of buying them as much as I can. Being able to control the ingredient list is priceless. 

While I love my Oven-Baked Crispy Sweet Potato Fries, I wanted to switch things up and I remembered I had my crinkle cutter in the drawer – so I excitedly got it out and gave it a shot. You should have seen me. I was like a kid in a candy store. They looked SO real. Ha. They are real. They looked so much like what you would buy in the store and they were beyond easy to cut! All you have to do is peel your sweet potato and then slice it with the crinkle cutter. First vertically, and then horizontally into the fries. I’m telling you, these are delightful with my homemade fry sauce. Give them a try and tell me what you think!

    These are amazing. Yes, I think I will make them – but for now, before I even print out the recipe, I will just gaze upon them for a spell.
