Blog PostBrands we loveFive recipes for unconventional but delicious loaded fries you should be making

March 19, 2021

Is there anything that potatoes can’t do? Whichever flavour profile or texture you’re looking to indulge in at any given moment, there’s a potato dish ready. Whether it be sweet, tangy or savoury, crispy, soft, or chewy, you can always find the answer you’re looking for in the form of potatoes! 

Fries, by extension, have the same palate-diversity. As Canadians, we’re no stranger to putting extra ingredients atop our fries; however, the ways we can switch it up range far beyond your classic cheese curd and gravy poutine. Since fries provide a very solid base to build upon, it’s one of the best common foods to play around with and tweak for preferences. 

With that in mind, we wanted to shine a light on some of the unique but incredibly tasty toppings you should give a try, courtesy of Alexia. Alexia’s fries lineup is naturally delicious, sustainably produced and available to buy at The Sweet Potato. With their products serving as the base, the final product is already guaranteed to be delicious.
