One afternoon, I looked in the refrigerator to see what I could make for dinner. There wasn’t much!
All I had were some sweet potato, avocado, bacon and tomatoes. Oh and one egg!! I knew that I could make my garlic butter sweet potato fries as they have always been a winner, so I decided to jazz them up a bit and make them into a full meal.
This recipe has become a regular feature in my household and I have also made these Loaded Taco Fries.

HOW TO MAKE
First, you need to prepare the sweet potato fries and put them in the oven to bake.
While the fries are cooking in the oven, cook up the bacon, prepare the guacamole and make the mayonnaise.
Once you are finished preparing everything and the sweet potato fries are ready, you then need to load up your bowl.
When ready to serve, place the fries at the bottom of the bowl (or plate), add the bacon, then spoon the guacamole and the mayonnaise over the top.
Yes, you absolutely can. When making the fries, substitute the butter with olive oil or coconut oil. And then you can omit the mayo and bacon. I love to make these fries just with the guacamole on top.
This recipe works well as leftovers, just make sure you store your avocado, tomato and aioli separately to the fries, so you can easily reheat them.

- 2 large sweet potatoes, washed and peeled
- 3 tablespoons organic butter, melted
- 1-2 tablespoon garlic powder
- 8 rashers bacon (short cut or nitrate free), sliced thinly
- 2 large avocados
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 3/4 cup cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered (depending on size)
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon organic dijon mustard
- 1 cup mild olive oil
- Sea salt
- Preheat oven to 220 C | 430 F
- Slice sweet potatoes into fries and place on two lined baking trays in a single layer. Add butter, garlic powder and a few pinches of sea salt in a small bowl, mixing well to combine. Pour mixture over the fries.
- Place the fries in the oven and cook for 30 minutes or until browned, turning over at the halfway mark.
- While the fries are cooking, heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the bacon, stirring, for 4 minutes or until browned and crispy. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.
- To make the guacamole, mash the avocado in a medium sized bowl. Add the garlic, lime juice, cherry tomatoes, cumin and a pinch of sea salt, mix to combine.
- To make the mayonnaise, add the egg, lemon juice, dijon mustard and a pinch of sea salt to a high speed blender. Blend on low for 30 seconds. Then, while keeping the speed on low, add the olive oil in a slow steady stream until the mixture pales and thickens. Don't rush this bit!
- Remove the fries from the oven.
- To make the loaded fries, you can either use dinner plates, a serving tray or the tray the fries were cooked on. Keep the fries on the bottom, next, add the bacon, then the guacamole, followed by the mayonnaise.
- Serve and enjoy.
- Simply omit the bacon if vegetarian or vegan and swap the mayonnaise for garlic aioli.
- This meal is best enjoyed as soon as the fries come out of the oven.
- If you have any leftover mayonnaise, you can store in an airtight container for up to one week.
