How to make oven baked Sweet Potato Fries

Making Baked Sweet Potatoes is very easy. Start by peeling the sweet potatoes and cutting them into French fry shapes. Put them in a bowl, add salt, olive oil (coconut oil works great too), and your favorite spices.

Put them on a baking tray on baking paper, it´s important that they are separated from each other. Put the tray in the oven previously preheated to 210º degrees.

The baking time is approximate, they should be done in 20-30 minutes, although each oven is different. To know when to take your sweet potatoes out of the oven, look at the color. I love sweet potato fries very well done, when they are well done they have a caramelized flavor. Take them out of the oven when they are at the point you like best.

Enjoy them and Bismillah! 🙂

How to get very crispy Oven Baked Sweet Potatoes Fries

Honestly, it´s not easy to get very crispy Oven Fried Sweet Potatoes (by this I mean crunchy like classic French fries). Although I have some tips to help you get them as crispy as possible.

  • Rinse the sweet potatoes once you've cut them in cold water, you can even let them soak for about 30 minutes.
  • Leave them in the oven as long as possible (without burning them) so that they are as crispy as possible.
  • I have noticed that covering the baking tray with baking paper instead of aluminum foil makes them crispier.
  • I have already mentioned this before, the sweet potatoes have to be separated from each other to get crispy.

I hope these tips help you get the perfect Sweet Potato Fries.
