Sweet Potato Fries with Bourbon Pecan Pie 
Barbeque Dipping Sauce

Inspired by the gourmet ground coffee I received from event sponsor Door County Coffee*, I decided to make a coffee-infused barbeque sauce for my sweet potato fries that were the side dish for my Door County Maple Coffee-Crusted Steak. I shared that recipe to kick off the week, remember?

Well, coffee and sweet potato are a match made in heaven. So, this an easy leap to make. And with baked fries, it's largely guilt-free.

Ingredients
Fries
  • 3 to 4 medium organic sweet potatoes
  • olive oil
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper


Barbeque Sauce

  • 1/2 C brewed coffee (I used the Bourbon Pecan Pie from Door County)
  • 1 C ketchup
  • 1/2 C red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 C organic dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 onion, peeled and diced approximately 1 C
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 2 T molasses or maple syrup
  • 2 T mustard (I used a spicy brown mustard)
  • 1 T Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 T bourbon, optional (I added this to mirror the coffee)
  • 1 T ground cumin
  • 1 t smoked paprika
  • 1 t sweet paprika
  • hot sauce as needed

Procedure
Fries
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Cut the sweet potatoes into fries and place in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Turn the sweet potatoes out onto the baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 25 minutes until crisped on one side. Turn the sweet potatoes over and return them to the oven for an additional 5 minutes.

Barbeque Sauce
Place the onions in a saucepan with a splash of water and cook on low heat until softened and translucent, approximately 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in the garlic and add the remaining ingredients. Simmer until it has reached the consistency that you want. Mine took between 15 and 20 minutes. Adjust seasoning - sugar, salt, and pepper - as needed. Place in sterile jars and refrigerate until ready to use. Use within week.

  1. Great use of the coffee. I think this sauce would be perfect on grilled meats too. Can't wait to try it.
