Let’s play a game, shall we? Here are the rules: I’ll ask a question, and you answer with “ketchup!”
What’s the greatest condiment on Earth?
Um…did you read the rules? You’re supposed to answer with “ketchup!” Let’s try again. I’ll start with an easy one.
What’s red, made of tomatoes, and rhymes with wetchup? Ketchup! Good job. I knew you’d catch on.
What should no hamburger ever lack? Ketchup!
What makes everything taste better? Ketchup!
What should every french fry be dipped in? Ketchup!
What is my all-time favorite condiment? Ketchup!
Oooh trick question! That was what used to be my favorite condiment. But ketchup, step aside. There’s a new dipping sauce in town and it’s definitely gonna show you up. Make room for the exotic, creamy, and oh-so flavorful curry mayonnaise. And versatile too! You can use it to dip fries in, on sandwiches, burgers, wraps, anything you can think of that you would use ketchup for. It even has ketchup in it, so if you’re a ketchup-loving weirdo like I am, you can feel better knowing you’re not completely betraying your beloved condiment.
- 3 sweet potatoes
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- kosher salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1-2 tbsp curry powder depending on your taste
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- To make sweet potatoes:
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Line baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
- You can peel the potatoes or keep the skin on. I like to keep the skin on and scrub them really good to make sure they are clean, but I've done it both ways.
- Cut each potato in half the long way, the set flat side down and cut into 1/4" strips, then cut each strip into half to look like a french fry.
- Once all fries are cut, place into prepared baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
- Toss them around with your hands or a spoon to evenly distribute the olive oil.
- Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper.
- Bake in preheated oven for 25-35 minutes, tossing after 15 minutes until they are cooked through and slightly browned.
- The cooking time range is so large because of difference in preference of how crispy people like their fries.
- If you want them extra crispy, cook 35 minutes.
- Keep in mind, they won't be crispy like fried fries...they are baked after all!
- To make the curry mayo:
- Mix all ingredients together well with a spoon.
- Refrigerate, or serve immediately.
