sweet potato fries and garlic aioli

December 11, 2008

Tonight is our youngest son’s inaugural Kindergarten Christmas concert.  Another kid is going to her soccer game, so it is quick eatin’ tonight.

I had some Salsa Beef Cheddar burgers from Sunterra in the freezer just for this very occasion.  To fancy things up, I made homemade potato and sweet potato french fries.  And garlic aioli.  (I was kidding about the fancy.  What’s fancy about hamburgers and fries?).


Homemade Potato and Sweet Potato French Fries

5 medium potatoes
1 sweet potato
olive oil
fresh rosemary, chopped
salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Wash the potatoes and cut into fours length-wise so they look like big fat french fries.  Toss in a bowl with the olive oil and rosemary.  Spread on the baking sheet and season liberally with salt and pepper.   Cook for one hour, flipping the potatoes with a spatula every twenty minutes or so. 

Garlic Aioli

2 small garlic cloves, minced
juice of half a lemon
2 Tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
1/2 cup mayonnaise (You can make homemade mayonnaise.  I did not).
salt and pepper

Mix everything up in a little bowl.  Serve with fries.

    Those Sunterra burgers are really good. The thing is tho, Sunterra is amazingly inconsistent. Next time we buy them I wouldn’t be surprised if they were inedible.

    The stuff from the butcher is usually pretty good, but I had a shrimp wrap with noodles there yesterday that must have been about six months old – the wrap was so hard I couldn’t chew through it! The sandwich items are pretty hit and miss.
