Don’t settle for plain ketchup or boring mayo when you have the option to elevate your dipping game with Maple Mayo for Sweet Potato Fries. You won’t want to go back to regular dipping sauces after trying this awesome combination!
We’ll need just three ingredients to create this awesome dipping sauce: mayonnaise, brown sugar, and pure maple syrup. Don’t be mistaken – this is not your typical mayo concoction. While mayo might not be the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about sweet potato fries, it works seamlessly to create a creamy dip that complements the sweet and savory notes of this dish. And trust me, when combined with the syrup and sugar, it gets even better!
For this recipe, I recommend using a high-quality mayonnaise such as Hellmann’s or Best Foods. It’s the creamy base that holds everything together and gives the sauce its signature texture. Don’t worry if you don’t have brown sugar on hand – You can substitute it with dark corn syrup or honey if you prefer. But if there’s one thing I wouldn’t change for any reason, it would be the pure maple syrup. It is what gives this dipping sauce its distinct sweet and nutty flavor that pairs so well with sweet potato fries.
Below is a quick rundown of what you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
- 1/4 cup Pure Maple Syrup
The Recipe How-To
Now buckle up folks, it’s about to get real. Are you ready to create the ultimate dipping sauce for your sweet potato fries? Let’s go!
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup, and a tablespoon of brown sugar until it is a smooth and creamy consistency.

- Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or until you are ready to serve.

Substitutions and Variations
When it comes to substitutions and variations, the possibilities are endless. That’s what makes cooking so exciting! Here are some options to switch things up and create your own unique twist on this recipe.
First, if you don’t have pure maple syrup on hand, you can substitute it with maple-flavored syrup or honey. While it may not taste exactly the same, it will still provide that sweetness that we all crave.
If you’re looking to make a vegan version of this recipe, swap out regular mayonnaise for vegan mayonnaise. This will give you the same creamy texture without any animal products.
For those who want a bit more kick, add some Chipotle aioli to the mix. The smoky and spicy flavor of Chipotle pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the maple mayo.
If you’re a garlic lover like me, add 1 tsp of garlic powder to the mix. It will give the mayo an extra dimension of flavor that will take your sweet potato fries to the next level.
Finally, feel free to experiment with different types of sweet potatoes. Purple sweet potatoes, Japanese sweet potatoes or even yams can be used instead of regular sweet potatoes for a fun twist.
No matter what substitutions or variations you choose, remember that cooking is all about creativity and expressing yourself through food. So go ahead and have fun with this recipe – I promise it’ll be delicious no matter what!
Serving and Pairing
Now, onto the crucial question – how to serve and pair this magnificent Maple Mayo Sweet Potato Fries Recipe!
First off, you can choose your preferred style of potato fries for this recipe – be it baked or fried. Once your fries are ready, drizzle some creamy maple mayo on top or use it as a dipping sauce on the side.
Pairing is where you can let your creativity run wild. These sweet potato fries go well with an array of dishes like burgers, sandwiches, grilled veggies, or chicken. They are also perfect for those lazy weekends indoors where all you want to do is binge-watch your favorite shows.
An awesome pairing suggestion worth exploring is to team up these sweet potato fries with a smoky and spicy flavor profile. Whip up a Chipotle Aioli Dipping Sauce using vegan or regular mayo and add some minced garlic, chipotle pepper, and lime juice for an extra zing.
Another scrumptious variation to consider is to add some crispy bacon bits on top or sprinkle some green onions right before serving for that fresh crunch. Lastly, you can even use Maple Mustard Dipping Sauce instead of mayo to switch things up.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating
Are you planning on making these delicious sweet potato fries ahead of time? Or did you accidentally make too much and want to store them for later use? Don’t worry because I have got you covered! These fries can easily be made ahead of time and stored for later consumption.
To make these fries ahead of time, I recommend baking the sweet potato fries until they are perfectly crispy. Once they are done, allow them to cool down completely before placing them in an airtight container. You can store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or you can freeze them for up to 2 weeks.
When it’s time to reheat your sweet potato fries, preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and place the frozen or refrigerated fries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until they are heated through and crispy.
But wait, what about the maple mayo dipping sauce? Can that also be made ahead of time? Absolutely! The maple mayo can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days.
This make-ahead and storing tip will save you so much time and effort. Whether you’re hosting a party or just want an easy snack to munch on, this recipe is perfect for satisfying your cravings without any hassle. Trust me, you won’t regret storing some of these addictive sweet potato fries for those late-night cravings or last-minute guests.
Tips for Perfect Results
If you want to achieve perfect results with this recipe, here are some tips that might help:
First and foremost, use fresh ingredients. This will make a big difference in the flavor of your Maple Mayo sauce. Make sure your mayonnaise is not expired and is at room temperature when you begin mixing it with the other ingredients.
When measuring the ingredients, be precise. Use measuring cups and spoons to ensure that you are adding the right amount of ingredients. Too much or too little can impact the texture and taste of the final product.
While whisking the ingredients together, do it gently but thoroughly until all ingredients are well combined. If you over-whisk the mixture, it may become too thin.
For a creamier texture, slow and steady is the way to go; add your ingredients slowly while whisking continuously until you get your desired consistency.
If you prefer a smoky flavor, replace regular bacon with maple bacon. The smoky-sweet flavor combination will elevate your dish and give it a delicious twist.
To make vegan Maple Mayo dip no sweat but still incredibly tasty, replace regular mayo with vegetarian or vegan mayo.
Finally, if you plan to serve leftovers later on or if you want to make this dip ahead of time for a party, store it in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for up to five days.
