How To Bake Sweet Potato Fries

  1. Select sweet potatoes that are firm and without blemishes or soft spots. Scrub them in the sink and pat them dry before cutting. Sweet potatoes can be peeled, or the peels can be left on for a more rustic look and a bit more fiber. Using a French fry slicer or a sharp knife, slice sweet potatoes a half inch thick.
  2. Season with olive oil and salt and pepper.
  3. Bake on parchment lined baking sheets for about 30 minutes. For best results, rotate the pans from top to bottom halfway through baking so they cook evenly. To get them ultra-crispy, place them  under the broiler about two minutes before serving.

How To Season Sweet Potato Fries

Some yummy suggestions are Italian, Cajun or Fajita seasonings.

What To Serve With Sweet Potato Fries

Can Sweet Potato Fries Be Frozen?

Already cooked sweet potato fries can be frozen but will be soft after thawing and reheating. It’s best to freeze them after cutting them, then roasting in the oven when a fresh batch is called for!
