Sweet potatoes 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 with 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 one the edges as well. Don’t worry! It develops a nice caramelized flavor.

After the fries come out of the oven I sprinkle them with just a little more kosher salt, Parmesan cheese and parsley. Crispy, spicy and best of all HEALTHY!

Sweet Potatoes are loaded with benefits. One sweet potato packs your daily requirement of Vitamin A. Sweet potatoes are also nutrient rich in Vitamin C and calcium!

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 a spicy ketchup. I whipped up this spicy ketchup by simmering Worcestershire, hot sauce, sriracha, ketchup, paprika and chili pepper. The spicy ketchup is the perfect paring for these fries.

These sweet potatoes fries are very easy to make. Simply cut potatoes, toss with olive oil and sprinkle on the seasonings. You may have to place the fries on two baking sheets so they do not overlap. Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until crispy and tender. Make sure to rotate the fries.

These Baked Sweet Potato Fries can be served as a side dish, appetizer or snack.

  • Trisha

    iI love sweet potatoes and can’t wait to try these, but since I do like my fries crispy I would like to add the corn starch. Would you suggest tossing the sweet potatoes with the corn starch before or after tossing with the oil? Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Trisha,

      I would suggest tossing the potatoes with the cornstarch first (ziploc bag works great for this) make sure you toss enough to remove any clumps of cornstarch. Then I would toss with the olive oil and seasonings.

      Hope you enjoy them!
