Sweet Potato Fries

16 Jun

I’m suffering from a major blogger’s block.  Instead of making you read some whine about something, you’re getting a yummy recipe instead.  I’m not a big fan of the sweet potato.  However, this is soooooo good!

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries
serves 4-6

1 – 1 1/2 lb sweet potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil or canola oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (preferably the easy release kind).

Peel the sweet potatoes. Cut into strips that are about 1/2 inch wide on each side.

Place the sweet potatoes into a sealable plastic bag.

In a measuring cup, mix oil, salt, paprika and cinnamon. Add oil mixture to bag.  Seal the bag and shake well to thoroughly coat the fries. Spread the potatoes out onto the baking sheet in a single layer.

Cook for 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes. Transfer immediately to a paper towel lined plate and serve warm.


I turn them more often, probably every 6-7 minutes so they are crispier.



The recipe was originally found here.

    Mmmm. We love sweet potoato fries. I’m not mush of a cook though, so I just buy the frozen varirty and throw them in the oven. (I’m sure they’re not as good as your, but I’m lucky that my husband and my kids don’t expect much from me.) 🙂

    That’s “much” of a cook, not “mush” of a cook, though “mush” could probably describe my cooking sometimes too.

    Oops. Just realized I misspelled variety too. Why don’t comments have spell check?

    The sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) is a dicotyledonous plant which belongs to the family Convolvulaceae.
