Amazing Oven-Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

July 8, 2011

I go crazy for sweet potato fries.  Whenever I see it on a menu, I got to order it.  However, this tactic has not served my bank account well so I started making these sweet potato fries at home.  These oven-roasted fries save you calories and money.  The sweetness of these fries pairs nicely with dipping sauces like a blue cheese dip or chipotle-honey salsa.  You can serve these fries with just about anything but I always go for the classic burger and fries combo.

Sweet Potato Fries


2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced slightly thinner than steak fries

2 tablespoons of canola oil

Salt and Pepper

2 tablespoons of brown sugar

1 teaspoon of kosher salt

½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper

Try it with coconut oil! It's a much healthier oil than canola. And it's delicious with the sweet potato.
