I know, I know….this isn’t exactly an intricate recipe that I had to follow. But hey, it counts for me! Sweet potatoes are one of my most favorite foods, believe it or not. I will definitely pick sweet potato fries over any other type of fry.
I used to just bake my fries on a foil-lined baking sheet but they were never super crispy. Obviously frying them in oil would make them crispy but that’s not really my style. Then I saw a tip to bake them on a wire cooling rack. Bingo!
2-3 sweet potatoes
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cut ends off of sweet potatoes. If preferred, peel potatoes before slicing into wedges/strips.
Add potatoes to large bowl and add ~1 T of olive oil. Toss to coat completely.
Add spices, amounts based on personal preference. Mix thoroughly so every wedge is covered.
Set a wire rack on a baking sheet and spray rack with non-stick spray. Lay wedges on the wire rack. Bake for 25 minutes, then check to see if the potatoes are close to where you’d like them. I usually rotate the pan at this time and put them back in for 15 minutes. They may also need an additional 5-10 after that.
