Creole Sweet Potato Fries

Who doesn’t love sweet potato fries?  How about Cajun food?  Marry the two by adding some creole spice to the sweet potato fries.


Sweet potatoes from the garden.


They are disappearing all too quickly.  We started with this many, but I do not think we will have any left come February.



EDIT: I decided to enter this into the Fabulous Fusion Food Challenge, run by Deena Kakaya at  On the challenge page, it says: Fusion may sound like a dirty word these days when it comes to food, but when it works…it really is a wonderful tidal wave of sensory pleasure! It is so exciting to have new flavours and tastes run around in our mouths and minds and using what we like from different parts of the world makes for an interesting plate of food. So whether its curried pasta, Mexican spiced stir fry or a pizza with samosa filling on top, they can all taste out of this world!

Creole Sweet Potato Fries

2 large or a few medium & small sweet potatoes (from the garden)

1 – 2 Tbsp canola oil

1 tsp Kosher salt

1 Tbsp creole seasoning


Heat the oven to 425F.

Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into 1/4″ fries.


Toss the sweet potato with the oil, salt and seasoning.


Spread on a baking sheet(s) in 1 layer.


Bake for 15 minutes.


Flip the fries with a spatula. Bake for another 10 – 15 minutes, be careful not to burn the fries, they should be nicely browned and crisp.




Serves 3 – 4.
