How To Make Baked Sweet Potato Fries
The natural starchiness and sweet-slightly-earthy flavor of sweet potatoes are great when served as fries. Bake some sweet potato fries for a filling dish.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
Wash and peel the potatoes. Cut off the ends. Using a sharp knife, cut the potatoes into thin slices about ¼-inch wide.
Place in a large bowl or ziplock bag and toss with cornstarch. You want a nice thin coating. Pour the potatoes into a strainer to get rid of any extra cornstarch. Discard the extra cornstarch out of the mixing bowl too.
Place potatoes back into the bowl and add the olive oil and seasoning of choice.
Line the sweet potatoes onto the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and flip. Place back into the oven for 10 to 15 more minutes.
Turn the oven off and keep the fries inside as the oven cools down for about 30 minutes. This step will help the fries get crispier. Enjoy immediately.
- Do not overcrowd the sweet potatoes or else it will only be steamed and not baked.
- Make sure to rotate the pan to avoid uneven browning. Don’t fret if the edges are a little brown, they will taste more caramelized than burnt.
