Oven Sweet Potato Fries

I've made these and they're very good.

Preheat oven @ 450 degrees

Take one large sweet potato and wash and peel.
Dry off with towel.. Slice into french fry size, no smaller than 1/4 inch wide.
Put the sliced sweet potato fries into a food safe bag, sprinkle on 1-2 tsp of
cornstarch..Sweet Potato's have a bit of moisture, so this helps to counteract
and results in crisper fries..Shake the bag and coat well...To this add 1 tbsp
of grapeseed or olive oil..(i use grapeseed, just my preference)..Shake bag well
to coat sp with oil. Next add 1/4 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese (I dont
use the kind in a shaker container like kraft etc..I tried it once and it was
ok..But the best results and flavor was from a block i grated myself..Flavor was
so much better) Add a little sea salt..You dont need much as the parmesan is
slightly salty..Shake the bag well till SP fries are coated..I piut the bag on
the counter and gently press down on the bag with my hand and fingers turning
the bag around while gently pressing to coat the fries with the cheese that
didnt stick.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, Spread the SP
fries out....(I use a cooling rack (cookie rack) to put on top of the lined
cookie sheet.., and then put my SP fries on that to bake. It helps them to crisp
up more evenly..but if you dont have a cooling rack, just use the lined cookie
sheet)..Bake at 450 degrees for 20-25 minutes..Turn and bake another 15 minutes
until crisp and golden brown.. Enjoy!!

Please be aware thaty all ovens
are different..Check on your fries after 20 minutes..If they are golden brown,
then turn fries, and continue to bake for at least another 15 minutes..Dont
worry about the ends getting a little crispy brown..That happens, It tastes

  • Sounds really good.  As soon as my sweet potatoes are ready, I'll try it.  I really like the idea of baking on a rack.  I really like sp fries baked in coconut oil though.

    • I use a lot of coconut oil too, I'll try that next time. I used sunflower seed oil when I made these. Thanks!

    • You're welcome.  I love baked sweet potatoes drenched in coconut oil too!
