When you just can’t get enough of quick and easy vegetarian recipes paired with bright and fresh greek flavors, these loaded sweet potato fries are just the thing. They’re the ultimate snack, appetizer, or hey, even dinner.
If you’ve ever wondered what to put on sweet potato fries: this is it. This recipe is bursting with flavor from fresh veggies, tangy feta cheese, and everyone’s favorite 5-minute tzatziki sauce recipe to really complete the whole vibe.
And what makes it so quick and easy? Using frozen sweet potato fries, that’s what!
Of course, you could absolutely make your own baked sweet potato fries (following the same crispy oven method as these baked rosemary garlic fries). Either way, you’re gonna be head over heels for this recipe!
The Ingredients You’ll Need (+ Substitutions)
The beauty of making recipes like this (think: Mediterranean Nachos or other loaded fries) is that the toppings are really up to you.
Yeah, these ones are excellent sweet potato fries toppings; they work together to deliver flavor, texture, and all the things, but feel free to switch it up and substitute ingredients as needed!
- Sweet Potato Fries: there’s only one way to make loaded sweet potato fries, and that’s with sweet potato fries! Grab a bag of frozen fries – regular cut or waffle fries – they make this process super simple. The hint of sweetness also works SO WELL with the bright and bold Greek flavors!
- Tzatziki Sauce: oh this super simple version takes less than 5 minutes to make and is packed with herbs for extra flavor. Could you use storebought tzatziki? Sure, but why both when you can make this easy homemade version in no time?
- Tomato: grape or cherry tomatoes will be the easiest to use because they aren’t very juicy and are quick to slice. Otherwise, slice up a Roma (or you know, whatever you have on hand, just remove excess juice if needed).
- Banana Peppers: oh, I love me some slices of banana peppers. Chop them or add them in their sliced form. You can also substitute or use peperoncini for a spicier version.
- Red Onion: oh a little bite from some diced red onion. Looking for something milder? Give shallot a try.
- Kalamata Olives: these briney Mediterranean olives deliver! Use black or green olives, if you prefer.
- Cucumber: fresh and light, they add a nice balance.
- Feta Cheese: can you really have loaded fries without cheese? My answer is no. Pile on those feta crumbles!
- Green Onions: i.e. scallions, these little guys make such a great garnish, and add texture, too!
I also highly recommend some herbs like chopped fresh parsley or some dried oregano for additional yumminess.
How to Make Greek Sweet Potato Fries
Are you ready for this? Because in less than 20 minutes (or however long it takes those frozen fries to bake) you’re going to have a wonderfully loaded plate of sweet potato fries!
Step 1: Bake the Fries
The base of this recipe is baked sweet potato fries. If you want to make homemade sweet potato fries, follow my rosemary fry recipe for how to make crispy sweet potato fries! Hint: it involves corn starch!
Feel free to get regular cut fries, crinkle cut, or really live life and try waffle fries! Heck, you could even make sweet potato tater tots. These loaded greek fries can honestly be made with any kind of French fry though.
Spread the fries in an even layer on a baking sheet, then bake according to the package directions. If you have convection in your oven, be sure to use it as it will make the fries even crispier. You can also use an air fryer if you have one large enough (or make it in batches).
Tip: when still hot, sprinkle salt and black pepper across the fries to add flavor!
Step 2: Toppings & Tzatziki
While the fries bake, maximize your time and be super efficient by preparing the tzatziki and veggies.
The tzatziki comes together in less than 5 minutes, but I would recommend making it first so the flavors can meld together. This version isn’t a true-true tzatziki, it’s the lazy-girl version, so you won’t need to shred cucumber or anything for it. But you still get all that tanginess thanks to the Greek yogurt, plus all the herbs. Did I mention it’s easy?
Then, prep the veggies that need chopping. Dice the cucumbers and tomato, chop the red onion, and get the scallions ready for garnish.
Step 3: Assemble
Once the fries are baked and the veggies and sauce are ready, all that’s left to do is assemble!
Divide the fries between plates or top them on a platter. Then evenly spread the vegetables across the fries, and drizzle on the tzatziki sauce. Don’t forget the feta, then garnish with the scallions and any herbs. All that’s left to do is to dig in!
This recipe will feed about 4-6 people as an appetizer, depending on your appetite. It can also double as a dinner – add some roasted chickpeas for extra crunch and protein and dig in! In that case, I recommend about 2 servings if you’re not serving anything alongside it.
The fries can also double as a side dish next to mushroom gyros, baked salmon, crispy falafel, or pita sandwiches. Roasted Chickpea Greek Salad is a perfect, light accompaniment. Serve them with burgers or shrimp skewers, too!
Make Ahead & Storage
To make ahead, you can prepare the veggies and store them in their own separate air-tight containers in the fridge up to 2-3 days in advance. Do the same with the tzatziki sauce. Don’t bake the fries until you’re ready to serve though, you won’t those fresh and hot as can be!
Speaking of…they’re definitely best when enjoyed immediately, but if you must…
Store any leftover fries (that’s a thing?) in the fridge in an airtight container. They aren’t the best leftover, but who doesn’t love some loaded fries late at night? Reheat in the air fryer or oven, or microwave if you don’t mind a little softer fries. Heck, you can even go ahead and just nosh on them cold.
