First wash the sweet potato(es) thoroughly.  Preheat your oven to 400 degrees C.

Step Two

And something I learned when making these the first time is to throw the potato in the oven for a few minutes to let it soften up first.

Then but into fry like shapes.  I did this by first cutting the potato into quarters then going from there.

the salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.

    • They are way better homemade. I was always intimidated to try making them but it’s super simple. Thanks for reading

    • What I do if I want them crispy is to flip them a few times while they are in the oven. Thanks for reading!

  • I make these too… But just with paprika, not pepper or garlic so I will definitely try adding those next time I make them! So easy to make, healthy and they go with so many foods! #KCACOLS

    • Agreed that they go with so many things. I first started making them because my little one is obsessed with fries so I hoped it would help offer something a little healthier. Thanks for reading!

  • I am a sweet potato fry fiend but to be honest have never made them as I always groun at the effort but you make this look easy and uber tasty..tummy rumbles….definatley wil lbe giving it a try! #KCACOLS

    • Thanks Jade! really the hardest part is just cutting the sweet potato. They are also great cubing the sweet potato and roasting.

  • Arthur is a huge sweet potato fan! I used to make these for him, but these days I just bake the potatoes whole (with skin) in a high temp oven until soft then I switch the oven off and leave them in there until it cools down…it makes them caramelise a little and go extra sweet which he really likes and means that he eats it (it is very soft) without any added salt or flavourings #KCACOLS

    • Sarah thanks for the tip. I haven’t actually tried to make them whole before. I mostly tried them in fry form because I thought it would be more likely mine would try them.
