For Sriracha Maple Dipping Sauce
- 1/2 cup mayo
- 2 tablespoon sriracha
- 2 tablespoon maple syrup
- Cut sweet potatoes in half, length-wise
- With the flat side down, cut potatoes into approximately 1/2-inch fries
- Add fries to a large bowl. Add olive oil, chili powder, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, paprika, and pepper to the bowl and mix. Cover as much of the fries as possible.
- Wrap each fry with 1/2 slice of bacon or a full one if it is an exceptionally large fry.
- Preheat Grill to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and make sure there is a zone for indirect heat.
- While grill is preheating, mix all sauce ingredients together and stir until well combined.
- Once grill is preheated, add the bacon-wrapped sweet potatoes to the indirect heat.
- Grill for 30-35 minutes, flipping 1/2 way through heating.
- Once the bacon is done and fries are tender to the fork and have a crispy outside.
- Remove, Serve with dip, and Enjoy!
- Don’t use thick-cut bacon, as it will be harder to wrap.
- If one fry is far too big to be edible as a fry or for your bacon to wrap around, just cut the wedge in half.
- For extra-large fries, you could use a full slice of bacon to wrap with.
- Choose uniform looking, medium-sized (erroring on the small-sized) sweet potatoes when shopping
- Use indirect heat to cook these sweet potato fries.
