Garlic Asiago Baked Spiralized Fries

Sure, you could make fries with a mandolin, a knife or a julienne peeler.

But using a spiralizer is so much more fun!

If you didn’t know already, your spiralizer can be used to make fries (shoestring or thick curly) just about out of everything (light veggies like kohlrabi and starchier veggies like potatoes.)

These fries, though, are really special.

Garlic Asiago Baked Spiralized Fries

It’s no secret why they’re special: they’re baked with salt, pepper, olive oil, garlic powder and asiago cheese. Garlic and asiago are two power Italian-favorite flavors.

Asiago cheese is quickly becoming one of my favorite cheeses to bake with – it has a similar taste to Parmesan but it’s much more robust and a bit saltier. You need a little sprinkling and voila, you feel like you’re eating something gourmet. Asiago cheese is nutty-like and semi-sweet, which makes it ideal for topping on sweet potatoes, which release sugars naturally as they bake.

I used sweet potatoes and white potatoes for flavor and a color pop – after all, art is food, right?

You’re probably sitting on the beach right now, savoring the last moments of the July 4th holiday weekend. Hopefully you have a margarita in your hand and you’re with good company.

When you get home, you’re going to probably head straight to the grocery store and stock up on some healthy foods for the week, after a long weekend of indulging and celebrating the U-S-A!

Garlic Asiago Baked Spiralized Fries

Why not make a big fluffy salad with veggies and top it with these fries?  It’ll be a savory, delicious way to ease your body back into it’s normal routine.

To be honest, I might make the best salads the world has ever seen. My mother always told me that I made the best salads. Before I learned how to cook, I’d just open my parents’ pantry and fridge and assemble these giant salads that we’d have to eat in mixing bowls, because no average plate or bowl could hold them.

Salads are no joke. I consider them naked burrito bowls, fit for topping with whatever you want.

Anyway, enjoy the rest of your July 4th weekend and consider making these fries this week, on top of a salad. Try it – once you do, you’ll never look at salad the same again!

What are your favorite types of fries to make?

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time35 mins
Servings: 4


  • 1 medium sweet potato Blade B
  • 1 medium Idaho potato Blade B
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup grated asiago cheese
  • fine sea salt and ground pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • Trim the potato noodles so that they are serving friendly.
  • Place the potato noodles in a mixing bowl and drizzle over the olive oil, toss in the garlic powder, asiago cheese and season with salt and pepper, generously. Toss to coat thoroughly.

  • Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes and then flip over. Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until browned, flipping every 5 minutes if necessary (if your oven starts burning the fries.)
  • Remove from the oven and serve atop a salad, over steak, as a side or simply enjoy as a snack.

Love the Curly fries make over! I think this will be my lunch tomorrow...but with added bacon!
Jolene C says:
Oh My Goodness. These are absolutely delicious!!!!! I've make sweet potato fries before with the spiralizer but never have mixed them or added spices like these. This is definitely on my "to make" list for the weekend!
Chelsey says:
These look delicious! Do they crisp up? I've tried to make spiralized sweet potato fries but they stay soft and mushy :( Any tips? Thanks!
Make sure they're cooking at the right temperature and toss a lot!

Any tips on spiralizing sweet potatoes? I tried once and they made it pretty hard to turn the handle.
Yes, make sure the ends are cut off flatly and evenly. Also, check my Videos page for a video on spiralizing a sweet potato! Hope that all helps :)
Norma says:
This look amazing! Love it. Love it.

Greatest fries ever, what an awesome idea!!
I'm so glad you like the fries!
I'm pretty sure I've never tasted asiago cheese before.. and I think it's high time that I did! We've made spiralized sweet potato fries, but the don't come out this crispy, they came out more like hashbrowns. Maybe I needed a hotter oven!
You're missing out!! Asiago is the BEST!
Shaun says:
These are dangerous!! So yummy!
buckeyegal67 says:
Ok, now I need more info on your amazing salads! Can you be more specific?
Sandra says:
Made these last night....delicious! A word of warning: if you choose to use a sheet of aluminum foil instead of the parchment...DO NOT FORGET THE COOKING SPRAY (I must admit, however, my 17yr old son very happily picked off every fry that was stuck and ate it before the table was even set!)
I'm so glad you tried them!! Parchment paper is the way to go!
Marisa says:
So delicious! Used truffle infused olive oil and parm instead since I didn't have asiago but still wonderful!
Anonymous says:
I made these, but added a lot of paprika and cayenne...450 was too high though, I had to lower the temp to 375 and then just bake them a bit longer.
Wendy says:
I have tried time and time again to make spiralized sweet potato fries, but they always burn :( Is parchment paper definitely the way to go? I always follow the recipe and use the same amount of oil, but I never have parchment paper on hand so I use aluminum foil. I do spray it, but the fries ALWAYS burn on the outer ring and the ones in the middle are just mushy. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Halp?
chris says:
Love these, but a little confused about when to add asiago cheese. Step 3 says to mix in, then step 4 to drizzle asiago over fires.
Anonymous says:
Why not both?
I'll try to make them! Hope they come out crunchy...
Carol says:
Which blade for thick curly fries?
Alice May says:
Yum. Just YUM!!
Taylor Sauce says:
So delicious! ( )
Meaghan says:
Thank you so much, Taylor!

we’re flying back to new jersey on friday and already starting to miss it here in florida ☀️ the weather’s nice, but I’ll most miss all the time spent with our family together 🙏🏼 for the past (almost) 2 years, we’ve spent a lot of time in florida with my family and that’s been the silver lining of the pandemic 🙏🏼 right now, my grandmother is here and that time is extra special. I don’t think I’d ever have the chance to be with her for this amount of time otherwise, and I am so, so grateful for it 👵🏼💓 photos by @karlakorn 📸 ...
