Sweet Potato Fries

I had sweet potato fries with my chicken sandwich the other day at TGIFridays, and they were so good, I want to make some of my own.  I found this recipe today, and it sounds pretty easy - and yummy.

Sweet Potato Fries

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 gallon zip top bag
  1. Cut sweet potatoes into sticks that are fry sized making sure that no stick is more than about 1/4 inch thick in either direction.
  2. Put fries into zip top bag then add oil and salt. Squeeze out all the air and zip the bag. Squish potatoes around until they are well coated with oil and salt.
  3. Pour potato sticks onto a cookie sheet or baking dish in a single layer then roast for about 30 minutes at 350° turning sticks over half way through cooking.

ETA 3/15: The original recipe called for 1 tsp. of salt, but when I used that much, they just seemed too salty.  So I'm reducing the salt to 1/2 tsp.  Hopefully that will be better.  Otherwise, these were really yummy.  I did have to cook them longer, but that might be because my sticks were bigger than they should have been.  Just check them often and judge for yourself.

I adore sweet potato fries. I love the size of this recipe which makes it small enough for a lunch, and easy enough to multiply to feed a crowd.
