Sweet Potato Fries

These are so delicious and easy to make too!
They work best in a convection oven but if you don't have that option they still taste great even if not quite so crunchy!

3 to 5 lbs of sweet potatoes
2 tbs olive oil
1/2 tbs chili powder
1/2 tbs garlic powder
1/2 tbs onion powder
1/2 tbs sea salt
1/2 tbs black pepper

Cut the sweet potatoes into french fry or steak fry shaped pieces. Try to keep all the pieces about the same size.
In a large bowl place the cut sweet potatoes and the rest of the ingredients. Toss well to get even coverage of all the spices.
Spread the fries out onto baking sheets in a single even layer using 1 or 2 sheets as needed.
If you are using a convection oven preheat to 425 degrees and bake using convection for 20 to 30 minutes or until crispy, lightly browned and tender.
If you are using a regular oven then preheat to 375 degrees and bake about 45 minutes to 1 hour or until tender and lightly browned.


  1. Yum! Thank you for the recipe! This is very similar to how I make my regular french fries, except I use Knorrs garlic and herb mix. I will definitely try this.
    Thanks again:)

  2. LOVE sweet potato fries--yum!!

  3. I love these fries; wicked good stuff!

  4. Hi there! I know you are dairy free but I am just wondering if you have ever tried goat milk? Lots of people who have trouble with cow's milk have found goat's milk easier to digest - no lactose.

    As a goat I am all in favour of goat's milk.

  5. I'm going to try these. I've never been a huge fan of sweet potatoes but that's because my father always put too much garlic and pepper in them. They weren't too sweet that way.


I love getting comments so please let me know what you think!
