Secret Recipe Club: Cajun Sweet Potato Fries


I bet you're thinking "Another Secret Recipe Club post? Didn't she just post one?" Well, I did. But this afternoon I got an email from Amanda, the creator of the Secret Recipe Club letting us know that only one person in the A group didn't have a recipe from their blog posted. :-(

I know how impatient I am on reveal day at 7 AM looking through all of the posts to see who posted something from my blog, so I can just imagine how disappointed Connor's Cooking must have been to find out their assigned blogger didn't post anything. Amanda asked for volunteers to make a recipe from Connor's Cooking that could be uploaded tomorrow. So I did what any good blogger does. I immediately scrolled through the postings until I found something I could make on short notice.

It turned out there were quite a few volunteers, 33 of us in fact so Amanda came up with the great idea that as many of us as possible would make a recipe and she'd do a special blog hop for it.

So if this doesn't convince you to sign up for the Secret Recipe Club, I don't know what will! :-)

Sweet Potato Fries with Yogurt Dipping Sauce
Source: Connor's Cooking
Servings: 2-4
Printer Friendly

3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into strips
2 tsp. cajun seasoning
1 tsp. cumin
2/3 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup chili sauce
1 tsp. soy sauce

1. Preheat the oven to 425.
2. Place the potatoes slices in a ziplock bag and add the cajun seasoning and cumin. Seal the bag and shake it around to distribute the seasonings over the fries.
3. Spread the potato slices in a single layer on an un-greased large baking sheet.
4. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
5. While the fries are baking, in a bowl, combine the yogurt, chili sauce and soy sauce. Stir until well combined. Serve as a dipping sauce with the fries.

I had already planned to make sweet potato fries for dinner tonight so finding this recipe was perfect for me. I've never seasoned sweet potatoes with cajun seasoning and cumin before. I usually do salt, pepper and paprika for spicy ones. The combination of these flavors was great!

My fries did end up a bit overdone for my liking which is why I suggested 30 minutes as a checking point for the fries. I'm assuming mine where done at 30 minutes but I didn't even think to check them until 35 minutes. As for the dipping sauce, Tom and I both thought it was okay but we'd like to mess around with the ingredients next time we make these to get a bit of a different flavor. Either way, I now have a new seasoning for my sweet potato fries!

(My apologies for the picture, it was dark out by the time we ate dinner.)


  1. I adore sweet potato fries and the dipping sauce sounds wonderful. It was fun coming together and cooking from Connor's Cooking. I hope that you'll check out the Nutella Crêpes which I made from her blog.

  3. Yum, these look delicious! The sauce looks great too. Good choice.

  4. Mmm love sweet potatoes and make them reguarly. I would love to try them with this dip though.
    Thanks for sharing..and glad to be following.

  5. I can't wait to try this recipe. I usually eat sweet potato fries sprinkled with brown sugar. I have to try the savory side now!

  6. There is just something irresistible about a sweet potato fry....especially if there is a little heat on them!

  7. Yum! I have GOT to make my fiancee like sweet potato fries, because they are pretty amazing! And kind of fitting you posted a recipe from Connor's Cooking, and I scrolled back through some of your old recipes and see Connor's Birthday Sugar Cookie. That's a popular name!! :) I'm enjoying your blog, and am now your newest follower :)

  8. Thanks for taking the time to make a recipe off of my blog! I thought these were good too - not a big fan of the sauce on the side either though !:)


  9. These fries look fantastic. You were so nice to take care of a fellow blogger!
