Cheesy Sweet Potato Fries

by Dana Ferrante ’17

It’s Wednesday at 12:10pm. You’re in the servery. Well, it’s not just you, but about 30 other people who decided to eat at 12:10 just like you did. (How inconsiderate of them! #butactually.) First the trays run out, then the forks, and finally, your patience is gone.

Then, from the end of the line, you see a mouthwatering mountain of sweet potato fries…Heaven. It’s finally your turn in line, and everything is right with the world.

This d-hall hack is for the days when you want sweet potato fries, and sweet potato fries only. This fry/nacho hybrid is quite simple, low-commitment, and only involves 2 seconds of your precious, between-class time.

You’ll need…

  • A nice big plate of sweet potato fries
  • Cheese: feta from the salad bar, cheddar from the chili station, American/Swiss cheese from the sandwich
  • Scallions from the chili station
  • If you like it hot… Try some chill powder, hot pepper flakes, anything you can find.

How it’s done:

  1. Get some sweet potato fries. Pile on any cheese you’d like, some scallions, and anything you can think of that tastes good with cheese and potatoes.
  2. Throw it in the microwave. 45 seconds will do it.
  3. YUM!

Dipping Sauce Ideas:

  • Sour cream mixed with dill (you know, those spices you always think about using but never do?)
  • Sriracha
  • Your classic fries and ketchup
  • Who knows, maybe even mustard
