Garlicky Sweet Potato Fries with Blue Cheese

They say opposites attract.

It must be true.  There are SO many things that I like that mr doesn’t.

For example, I LOVE mushrooms.  Like “I could eat a whole pan of mushrooms sauteed in butter and onions and call it a meal” love.

Mr…not so much.

Mr LOVES spicy foods.  Like “I need to add cayenne pepper to everything I eat” kinda spicy.

Me…not so much.

I could eat carbs ALL. DAY. LONG.

Mr…not so much.

I enjoy a good sweet potato every now and then.

Mr…not so much.  Okay, not at all.

This is a perfect example of my carb lovin’, cheese obsessed, not stoppin’ til I’ve licked every square inch of this plate lunches that would leave the mr sayin’ “Where’s the beef!?”


  1. I’ve never had bleu cheese with sweet potatoes, but it sounds heavenly! I love the salty/sweet combo.

  2. I love the sweet-savory combo…these are drool-worthy, for sure!

    • Thank you Nicole! Originally I was reaching for feta {which I’m sure would have been just as good} but I’m so glad I grabbed the blue cheese!

  3. I love sweet potato fries, the added garlic and blue cheese are a great addition!

  4. I never thought of sweet potatoes and blue cheese together before, but it makes sense!

  5. Oh my gosh! I swoon over sweet potato fries! Adding blue cheese? That sounds just perfect to me!

    PS- just signed up for the Camp Blogaway! Hopefully we can bunk together! 🙂

  6. This sounds so good! Reminds me of my hubby – hot sauce and hot peppers go on everything!

  7. These look delicious. I would dip them in hot sauce, love the garlic addition and they’re baked. Great recipe.

  8. Now these are a great way to enjoy sweet potato fries!

  9. Well he is nuts not to love these! I want a plate right now!

  10. Sweet potato fries are amazing with or without cheese. I wish I had time to make them from scratch more often.
