Sweet Potato Waffle Fries


Happy Memorial Day Weekend! 

Hope everyone had a safe and fun long weekend. We took the opportunity to visit my old stomping grounds in Charleston and attended the Charleston Tea Plantations First Flush Festival and spent some quality time with old friends. The tea festival was amazing (though there was a crazy long 1.5 hour line to get in) and the tea bushes smelled SO good!

On Monday we went to an incredible brunch with our friends Vanessa and Brendan at Black Magic Cafe on Folly Beach, and while pondering the menu we reflected that it is almost impossible to find sweet potato waffle fries.. so we had a great idea! Why not make FUN sweet potato fries, just like they do with regular fries? Here is a post on our first sweet potato fry creation: Sweet Potato Waffle fries which we paired with a lean sirloin steak and a homegrown bibb lettuce salad!

We used our Cuisinart Mandolin on the waffle setting to cut the fries. BLT Foodies tip: rotate the potato 90 degrees on each slice to get the fun "waffle" effect.

We used just 1 potato, and lined 3 baking sheets with aluminum foil and drizzled with olive oil. Place the fries on a baking sheet in a single layer and top with olive oil and your choice of seasoning. We tried 3 different types: salt and pepper, cinnamon, and paprika & pepper. Bake on 325 for 15 minutes, let cool, and enjoy!

The result was a perfect Memorial Day BBQ meal! Especially because we used our home grown lettuce. I am so proud!!
