Sweet Potato Baked Fries

Sweet Potato Baked Fries

We have been obsessed with Sweet Potato Fries as of late.  We may be single handedly keeping the Sweet Potato farmers association afloat.  Previously, I was not a Sweet Potato fan.  I endured them.  However, I have had a change of heart!  These fries are delicious and so incredibly simple to make. 

I recommend serving them with a little spicy barbeque to offset the sweet flavor that is inherent in these gorgeous little Sweet Potato Fries.  


Baked Sweet Potato Fries

  • 2 organic sweet potatoes - cut into French fries
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt, pepper and jalapeño powder to taste

Preheat oven to 350°. On a baking sheet lined with a non-stick baking mat toss fries and a drizzle of olive oil (use sparingly or they won’t crisp up).  Arrange fries in a single layer.  Dust with salt, pepper and jalapeño powder. Bake for 20 minutes at 350°, flip once and continue to cook for up to 15 more minutes.  Be careful not to let them burn….yes, learn from my mistake.

Hi Ashley-

I bought my jalapeno powder from a local farmers market. This guy dehydrated some jalepenos and then ground them into powder. Cool huh?! It is the perfect thing to balance out the sweet of the potatoes. Hope you like it!

Best, Emily @ justeatfood.com

A chef friend of mine who also has a cook book out now (simply salads) swears that by preheating the pan, you can get a much more crispy sweet potato fry! i haven't tried it yet.
