Feel free to use just about any kind of spice or seasoning and adjust the amounts to taste. I also like these using crushed red pepper flakes or cumin.


  • 1 sweet potato, peeled, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Toss slices with oil, salt and cayenne pepper, spread out on a foil lined baking sheet and bake, turning once, until tender and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

A healthy alternative to your typical French fry. We enjoy these as a dinner side dish. Easy, pretty quick and tasty!

Total Time: Under an hour total

Yield: About 7 servings

Source: Self


  • 12 cups peeled and cut sweet potatoes (about 3 -4 large ones)
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tsp dried minced onion
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp ground coriander


  1. Peel, rinse and cut your potatoes to resemble the shape of a fry. Your children, if any, will appreciate this.

  3. Add your potatoes, oil and spices to a large Ziploc and mix well. *Because of the amount of potatoes, I divided the recipe in half and mixed in 2 bags.
  4. Spread evenly on a large cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees F for 25-35 minutes, or until they are soft inside and beginning to brown.
  5. Easy as that! Enjoy! :)

French fries are always a hit. When made with sweet potatoes and baked in the oven, they are a more nutritious and healthy treat. This page contains roasted sweet potato fries recipe.

This is the easiest way I've found to make sweet potato (or any other type of) fries.


  • sweet potato (1 or enough to serve your family/guests)
  • Advertisement

  • Italian dressing (I use bottled "house" Italian)
  • pepper (to taste)
  • paprika (to taste)

The Italian dressing takes care of most of the seasonings, and I do not need to add any more salt.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a jelly roll pan with aluminum foil for easy clean up.

Wash sweet potato and cut into quarter inch fries (I leave the skin on). Drizzle Italian dressing lightly over fries. The amount you use will depend on the number of potatoes you are serving. Sprinkle with seasonings (to taste). Toss lightly with your fingers to coat all the potatoes, then spread flat in one layer the cookie sheet.

Bake for 20-30 minutes to desired crispness. Serve with Ranch dressing as a dip.
