Sweet Potato Fries with Blue Cheese Dip Process
First, make the dip: In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients and whisk until blue cheese breaks down and dip is creamy. (You can also do this in a high-speed blender.) Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 4S0°F. (Use a convection oven, if available.)
Put a large baking sheet inside oven during preheat-a hot tray means crispier fries.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Add sweet potatoes to the bowl, and toss so that ingredients cover them completely.
Remove the hot tray from oven and transfer the fries d onto the tray. Spread in a single layer.
Return the tray to the oven and place on top rack. Cook sweet potatoes for 8 minutes, then flip.
Cook for another 15 to 17 minutes, tossing as needed, until the fries are crispy and golden brown.
