Oven Sweet Potato Fries

17 Jan


Making sweet potato fries from scratch is a piece of cake.

2 sweet potatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt and pepper

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Peel, wash, and cut your sweet potatoes, then toss them in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place them on a baking sheet so that they don’t touch each other.

Roast the potatoes for 15 minutes, then flip the fries, and continue to roast until crispy, about 12 minutes. That’s it!

    I’ve prepared these before, but I fried them instead. I just let the sweet potatoes dry out after a little soaking in water. Then I put a little bit in the fryer at a time. It does however, cause an issue with the oil (you would need to change it) and I really wouldn’t suggest frying them. The outside cooks up just fine, but the inside ends up somewhat hard. (since these are more dense then a normal potato from my experience. Baking them seems to work much better. :)

    Now, I have fried up a sweet potato as chips though they turn out just fine, but you would still need to change the oil when you cook them. :) They turned out real well with garlic and sea salt.

    You can also microwave them a bit (not long enough to make them soft) which helps the insides cook and allows them to take less time in the oven or in a pan on the stovetop.

    Why do you need to peel the potatoes?

    [...] process, because each cooking method has serious flaws. Frying them on a stovetop can produce excellent results but uses a lot of precious oil. Reducing the oil produces uneven results and dried out potatoes. [...]
