Parmesan Sweet Potato Fries with Ranch Dressing the ultimate sharing plate to enjoy!!
The summer holidays have started, kids are at home and they are probably going to eat us out of house and home. Seriously during the summer holidays there appetites are crazy. I can’t keep up with the amount of food they go through.
One thing my daughter loves is sharing plates of food, she will often ask if we can share a meal and I always obliged because it encourages her to eat things she might not normally even try. She loves watching me cook.
Actually I remember a very funny scenario when she must of been about 2. I had just cooked her breakfast, she is very much a breakfast kind of girl and loves her eggs. I served it up on the table and instead of digging in to eat it, she walked over to her toy box, got out her toy camera and took it back to the table and started photographing her meal, it was such a hilarious sight and very very obvious who she was imitating.
Occasionally that picture pops up on my “on this day” posts on Facebook and I can’t help but have a good ole chuckle.
Today for lunch I had a serious craving for sweet potato chips. I think it was because I had to avoid them all week while doing SP. So I knew exactly what I was having for lunch.
A good ole plate of sweet potato fries – but not just any ole plate, I was taking it one step further with these amazingly delicious Parmesan Sweet Potato Fries with Ranch Dressing served over a bed of greens, because well you have to have some speed foods – right?
These were seriously yummy, the fries were nice and crispy and the flavour was amazing.
If you just want regular sweet potato fries – then check out how I make my Crispy Seasoned Sweet Potato Fries or if it is normal potato fries you want, then check out How I make Perfect Syn Free Chips.
For these however, I made slightly different. Seasoning, egg and grated parmesan coat the fries in a flavour sensation and then the key to cooking, is a hot oven and spacing them well apart on the tray. If you pile them too close together, the result is soggy fries, because they tend to just steam. You want the heat to be able to get all around the fries so they go nice and golden and crispy.
For the sweet potato fries shape, try to choose a large sweet potato. The one I used was 600g. I sliced off a little bit on each end, peeled and then sliced into thin long fries (frites). This kind of shape is perfect for getting them nice and crispy.
You can use any seasoning you want really for these, but I personally like paprika, chilli powder (or cayenne for really spicy) and good ole sea salt.
Once cooked all thats left to do is plate up and drizzle over the top with my delicious Low Syn Ranch Dressing – which is actually pretty much syn free for the amount you have for a serving of these Parmesan Sweet Potato Fries with Ranch Dressing – PERFECT!!
