BAKED SWEET POTATO FRIES w/SRIRACHA AIOLI

I've tried to make baked sweet potato fries multiple times- and each time they end up being a nasty soggy mess. I can't decide whether it was bad recipes or user error...but either way- not delicious.

I decided to give it one more try after seeing my favorite gals at A Beautiful Mess share a recipe I hadn't tried yet! I tweaked the seasoning a bit, and made up a different dip to go with them- but the base recipe was the same- and they turned out absolutely perfect!

What you'll need to make it happen:
For the Fries:
- 2 Sweet Potatoes
- 1 Tbsp CornStarch
- Salt, Pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon Cayenne (less if you don't like spicy!)
- 2 Tbsp Canola Oil

For the Sriracha Dip
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 1 tsp Sriracha
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
-1/8 tsp cayenne

How to make it happen:
Step 1: Cut potatoes into evenly cut fries- the more even, the better cooking
Step 2: Soak the fries in water for 15 minutes
Step 3: Drain, Pat dry, and throw in a Ziplock bag with the cornstarch and cayenne
Step 4: Toss with 1 Tbsp canola oil and spread out evenly on a baking sheet lined with tinfoil
Step 5: Sprinkle with pepper and salt, and drizzle with other Tbsp of canola oil
Step 6: Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, flip, and then bake for another 15 minutes. If you cut your fries a little thicker, they may need more time- so bake until crispy!
Once they're cool, taste- and sprinkle with more salt/pepper to taste.
Step 7: Mix all dip ingredients together and enjoy!

You guys.
They are seriously addictive. The dip is so damn good. Yup.
