We dressed up store-bought waffle-cut sweet potato fries and created a winning game-day snack your whole crowd will love. Start by tossing the fries with chopped fresh rosemary and sea salt. Bake until they reach the perfect level of crispness. While they cook, stir together hot sauce, butter, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce. Once the fries are ready, drizzle them with the hot sauce mixture and your favorite store-bought ranch. Finish by topping with blue cheese. Be sure to serve immediately so they’re hot and crispy when friends and family dig in. You might want to double up and keep ingredients for a second batch in the fridge—we have a feeling an encore will be requested once these decadent fries hit taste buds.
