Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Jump to Recipe

I never knew I liked sweet potatoes until a couple of years ago. I never had them growing up. Well, I take that back…the only kind I ever knew of were the ones with marshmallows at Thanksgiving time and those do not appeal to me at all! Yuck! But now, they are a staple! I love them when they are cooked right:)

Roasted sweet potatoes are my favorite. They are so flavorful! They taste like candy, but better for you! Sweet potatoes are loaded with Vitamin A, C, maganese, a great source of fiber, potassium, and iron! Plus, they are a fun bright orange color!

If you haven’t tried sweet potatoes, try these “fries.” They are good and good for you! Feel free to spice them up however you like. I like them with salt, pepper, and fresh rosemary! YUM!!

  1. I love sweet potatoes but have only had sweet potato fries doused in honey dressing – yuck! I wonder if winter squash would work like this. I have an abundance of squash but no sweet potatoes right now. Sad! Thanks for posting the recipe! =)

  2. I like to roast potato slices, chunks, or fries on a metal cooling rack placed in a cookie sheet. They gat crispy!

  3. Maria,
    These fries look delicious–I’ve finished up the funky-shaped farm share sweet potatoes so I’ll be buying more . . . fry-able . . .potatoes from now on.
    Thanks!

  4. I love these baked fries. In a zip lock bag, I mix cut up sweet potatoes with 1 Tbsp oil, spices (sometimes + cinnamon), shake in a plastic bag, pour onto a baking sheet. For dipping, I mix mayo with a dash of lemon juice and small amount of curry. Sometimes I add a touch of brown sugar to sweeten the dip. Refrigerate for a few minutes and dip fries in it. Although it might be too spicy for kids. I first tasted the dip served with sweet potatoes fries in a pub in north Kansas City a few years.

  5. Love sweet potato fries. I use the same recipe pretty much, but normally add paprika and some chili powder for an extra kick to the sweet.
