DIRECTIONS

  • To make dressing: Place all ingredients except the buttermilk in the blender. Blend for 10 seconds. Check consistency and blend in buttermilk (less buttermilk for dipping, more for dressing). Store in an air-tight jar in the fridge for a week or more.
  • To make the fries: Coat a baking sheet with 3 tablespoons of oil, adding the last tablespoon if necessary.
  • Peel and slice the sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch sticks (no longer than 5 inches long).
  • In a large zipper bag mix the dry spices together. (I skipped the zipper bag and mixed everything in a large bowl). Add the sweet potato fries and shake the fries to coat evenly (I added a tad bit of oil to the fries in the bowl and the spices stuck nicely).
  • Carefully put the fries onto the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • Turn on the broiler for the last 1 to 2 minutes, just until the tips of the fries begin to turn black. Don't walk away--they can burn in no time.
  • Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate in a single layer until ready to serve. (I also skipped the paper towel because they weren't greasy and I thought it was unnecessary. Plus they disappeared so fast that was a pointless step in my opinion.).
