We have been finding a few ways to get fancy with food at home. Ever since trying vanilla infused sugar on sweet potato fries with a variety of other flavors at a fancy restaurant in Las Vegas, we've been thinking of versions we could re-create at home. I'm so excited to share a recipe that's easy, simple, and absolutely delicious using only 4-5 ingredients, including Alexia Sweet Potato Fries.
1 package Alexia Sweet Potato Fries
1/2-1 cup powdered sugar
1 fresh lemon
1/4 tsp. rosemary
The first thing to do it preheat the oven, and bake your Alexia Sweet Potato Fries as directed on the package. These are excellent because they use high quality, natural ingredients.
They are also easy to find in the frozen veggies/potatoes section at Walmart.
And they have pretty amazing options like onion rings and rosemary fries, but we went with the personal fave very first- sweet potato!
While you're waiting the 20 minutes to cook, you can easily make the sauce, the vanilla sugar, and clean everything up ready to go.
Start with the sauce you'll drizzle on the top. In a small bowl add 1/4 cup powdered sugar.
Squeeze in half a fresh lemon, add rosemary, and whisk together.
You want the sauce to be thick enough to drizzle but not clumpy. If it's running thin add a TBSP of powdered sugar at a time until you get a slow drizzle.
Let's talk vanilla infused sugar. You can buy this stuff if you want to make things easy, it's at most fine food stores. You can also get a vanilla bean, cut open, scrape a little out, and mix with about 2 TBSP of powdered sugar. If you want it really vanilla infused, leave it in a container with the rest of the bean overnight. Even a little goes a long way, and if you're feeling like you want to skip this and just use a little powdered sugar, that works too.
When your fries are hot out of the oven, go ahead and plate them on the dish you want to serve them on. Assemble the sauce and powdered sugar ready to go.
Sprinkle the vanilla-infused powdered sugar on top of the fries first.
Next, drizzle the lemon rosemary sauce on top, be sure to let a little spill over on the sides.
That's all there is to it! Enjoy this simple, delicious, gourmet style side at home in less than 30 minutes!
