Learn how to make crispy, oven baked sweet potato fries! Tossed with olive oil and sea salt, sweet potato fries are an easy and healthy homemade snack or side dish. Recipe yields 4 side servings.
Storage suggestions: These fries are best served fresh and hot, but leftovers keep well in the fridge, covered, for up to 4 days. To retain their crispness, reheat in an oven or toaster oven until warmed through and crisp. Leftover fries make a great base for nachos!
Prepare in advance: You can peel and slice the sweet potatoes up to 2 days in advance. To prevent them from browning, place the fries in a bowl large enough to contain them and fill the bowl with water. When you’re ready to bake, drain and thoroughly pat the fries dry with lint-free tea towels before proceeding with the recipe.
Make just two servings: I love having leftover sweet potato fries, but you can cut this recipe in half if desired. Divide the ingredients by 2 and use 1 pan. Bake the fries on the upper rack (make sure it is 6″ from the heat source). Flip after 15 minutes and keep an eye on them—they will be done 5 to 15 minutes later.
