Sweet Soy French Fries

3 Feb

I went to a restaurant a few weeks back and decided to try their specialty fries with my burger. They were DELICIOUS and I sat there eating them, sure that it would be an easy recipe to re-create at home. The trickiest part would be the sweet soy the fries were covered in; I was thinking of asking them what brand they use so I could try to find it at the stores. However, one Google search later and it turns out sweet soy is just regular soy + brown sugar. I eventually want to try doing this with homemade fries, but haven’t had the time to try that out.

This recipe couldn’t be easier and it’s definitely a crowd pleaser. The mix of sweet and tart is really amazing. BONUS: It’s not much more difficult than making a plain batch of fries and it definitely classes up the plate. 🙂


  • 1 package of frozen Extra Crispy French Fries
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup +1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1 bunch of fresh Basil Leaves, chop 5-10 leaves
  • 1 container of Gorgonzola Cheese Crumbles
  • Ranch Dressing

Throw a few servings of fries in the oven and cook to package instructions. While those are going, on a low/medium flame heat soy sauce and brown sugar in a sauce pan until sugar is completely dissolved. Be careful not to burn the sugar as it will make the sauce a bit bitter. Set aside to cool/thicken. When fries are done, drizzle with sweet soy, gorgonzola, and chopped basil. I don’t know the exact amount you’ll want on each serving, just eyeball it! Serve with ranch.
