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!

How to Make Oven Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Spread the potatoes evenly on a baking sheet prepared with parchment paper. Don't overcrowd the sheet, or have multiple layers of fries.
  5. 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.
