Ten guesses what's in these Mardi Gras fries. How many ingredients can you identify? Inspired by the tradition of making king cakes––especially by the unique and vibrant adaptations of New Orleans culture and cuisine––this wonderfully sweet and fatty snack combines fried sweet potatoes with sugar, cinnamon, cream cheese, praline sauce and chopped nuts. To top it off is sanding sugar in the Mardi Gras colors: gold, purple and green.

Graham Blackall's recipe for this colorful poutine might not be a feast for everyone's eyes, but it would certainly be worth a taste! I suspect that it's one of those odd and assorted mixtures that looks questionable and ends up tasting unquestionably good. One interesting point about these Mardi Gras fries is that they're actually vegetarian, making them a much more inclusive starchy dish than your typical chips and gravy.
