Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

sweet potato fries

I have been on a quest for a method for crispy baked sweet potato fries and as I usually do, I turned to Google for some advice. Since I found a lot of people were looking for the same thing, I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. After reading everything I could find, I set out to try again last night. The result? Pretty darned crispy! No, not the fried, french fry kind of crispy, but certainly pleasantly crispy and definitely not the mushy mess I’ve had in the past. This method is a combination of ideas I found and with my own ideas, thrown in. I was especially pleased that the nice results were achieved without a drop of oil!

  9. I made these fries and they turned out great! I have made sweet potato fries in the past but have never had such great and very crispy results. I seasoned them with chili powder, nutmeg and garlic powder and used brown rice flour as that is what I had on hand. This is surely going to become a regular dish in my house.
    I’m glad they turned out so well for you Erin! – Jen
