Sweet Potatoes

  1. Season Potatoes. Simply cut potatoes, toss with olive oil and sprinkle on the seasonings.
  2. Bake. Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until crispy and tender. Make sure to rotate the fries.

Tips For The Best Sweet Potato Fries

  • I used 1 1/2 sweet potatoes for this recipe because my sweet potatoes were very large. This will serve about 2 people. A good rule of thumb is 1 medium potato per person.
  • I like to peel my sweet potatoes before cutting them into fries. You can leave the skin on or off, whatever you prefer. I like to cut my potatoes about a 1/4 inch thick.
  • These sweet potato fries are served with spicy ketchup which is the perfect pairing for this sweet potato dish.

How do I make my sweet potato fries crunchy in the oven? 

Sweet potato fries are harder to get crispier in the oven than regular potatoes. To keep them crispy I like to place them in a single layer on a baking sheet. (Allowing them to overlap will cause the fries to steam and not crisp up.)

It is also helpful to add a sprinkle of cornstarch to your fries before baking. About 1-2 tablespoons will do the trick for a crispier fry. I skipped the cornstarch in this recipe because I prefer my fries on the softer side.

The fries will get a little brown on the edges as well. Don’t worry! It develops a nice caramelized flavor.

Can I store sweet potato fries in the refrigerator?

In the chance that you might have leftovers, you can store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container or zip lock for 3-5 days.  When you are ready to reheat, place on a baking sheet and warm-up fries in a 425-degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until crispy.
