When I feel fall in the air, I start craving sweet potatoes, collards and pork. Usually the sweet potatoes are baked but today I tried oven roasted fries to go with a boston butt roast. The spices paired with the potatoes were just right for a nice sweet n salty fall side dish. Actually, I think these fries would be good any time!

Inspried by "Gimme Some Oven" blog and our own JAP member and friend Bonnie Dare and her wonderful "Best Oven Baked Fries". I can never get enough of Bonnie's fries!


2 medium
sweet potatoes, washed and dried
1 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1 Tbsp
parmesan cheese, grated
1 tsp
smoked paprika (more if you like)
1 tsp
coarse salt
1/8 tsp
ground black pepper
1/8 tsp
cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp
garlic powder
1/2 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cut potatoes into 1/4″ thin strips, or to desired thickness. NOTE: you can peel or not peel the potatoes. Soak potatoes in ice water for 30 minutes. Drain and blot dry with paper towels.
Combine the dry ingredients in a ziploc bag. Add potatoes to bag; drizzle oil over potatoes. Seal bag and shake to coat potatoes with seasoning.
Spread the potatoes evenly on a baking sheet prepared with parchment paper. Don't overcrowd the sheet, or have multiple layers of fries.
Place in oven and bake 20-25 minutes. (May take more or less time, depending on the size of the fries.) Remove once the edges slightly begin to brown and fries begin to crisp.

Bonnie you know I love your russet taters! We can't get enough of those here! I don't think I've fried potatoes since you introduced me to your fries. They taste better and so much healthier too. I love the sweet taters with pork...:)

Looks great! I am so honored you are such a fan of my fries, thank you!! The sweet potato digests better than a russet potato, too, and so do the red potatoes. I can't wait to try your version with sweet potatoes, Diane!
