Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I like sweet potatoes, but am honestly not a huge fan.  But I LOVE sweet potato fries.  My kids don't like sweet potatoes at all, but love these.  They are so good for us too!  And so easy.  Makes a great pair with about any meat and great with burgers too!



  • 3-4 Sweet potatoes
  • EVOO
  • Coarse salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Garlic powder (NOT garlic salt)


Preheat oven to 425.  Peel potatoes and cut into fry like size.  Put them all in bowl and drizzle with 1-2 TBSP EVOO.   Sprinkle with about 1 tsp Salt, few grinds of pepper (about 1/2 tsp) and about 1/2 tsp garlic powder.  Toss to coat, adding more EVOO if needed.  (All potatoes shold be glossy.)
Spread on baking sheet (preferably not nonstick so they will brown) and put in oven.  Take out and turn after about 10 minutes and then cook another 10 minutes. Check to see doneness (will depend on how big fries are)  If necessary, turn them and cook another 10 minutes.
When cooked through, if not browned yet, broil for 3-5 minutes to brown and crisp them up. (WATCH carefully!  I leave oven door ajar.)   Taste for seasoning, can sprinkle with some garlic salt if desired.  Serve with favorite fry dip (a garlic mayo would be fabulous!)
