Sweet Potato Fries with Basil Salt and Garlic Mayonnaise

I love sweet potatoes but it seems like the only time I have them is Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Lately I've been wanting to spice up my side dishes and have some stuff that  is out of the ordinary for us.  The last time I went to the grocery store I bought some sweet potatoes and figured I could try out some new recipes.

I searched sweet potato fries on the food network website and found these by Giada.  Although the fries are nothing out of the ordinary the mayonnaise is fabulous. 

Sweet Potato Fries:


5 sweeet potatoes, cut into about 1 by 5-inch fries
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the fries on baking sheet lined with foil and toss with olive oil. Bake until golden, about 45 minutes.

While fries are baking combine the basil, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. In another small bowl combine the mayonnaise, garlic, and lemon juice, and stir to combine.

When the sweet potato fries come out of the oven, sprinkle with the basil salt. Serve with the garlic mayonnaise for dipping.
