I have a recipe that will change up the side dish at your next meal! Sweet Potato Fries! Sweet Potatoes are a good source of beta-carotene, and many other vitamins and minerals. They are a complex carbohydrate and they’re full of fiber. But the best part is…they are delicious!
Have you ever made oven-baked fries? If you have never made Sweet Potato Fries before, what are you waiting for? They are really easy! Kids love them and they are good for them.
- 2-3 large sweet potatoes
- 1 T. cornstarch
- 2 T. olive oil
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary (or more, to taste)
- Cut off the pointed ends of the sweet potatoes.
- Peel the potatoes using a vegetable peeler and slice them lengthwise into 1/2" sections. Then cut them into even pieces, about 1/2" thick and about 3 -4" long.
- Put them in a bowl and sprinkle the fries with the cornstarch. Toss them around to coat them evenly.
- Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat.
- Spread the fries out in a single layer onto a baking sheet that has been drizzled with olive oil. Sprinkle lightlywith salt and pepper and dried rosemary (to taste.)
- Space them evenly so that they are not touching each other. This way, they will get crispy. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes. Using a metal spatula, carefully turn the fries over. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until slightly browned and crispy!

These are really good with any kind of meat. I especially love these with pork.

These looks really good, and a good way to incorporate sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
We have a local burger joint that makes these with sea salt and rosemary and they are AMAZING. With this recipe, I can make them at home. You officially just made my day! 🙂

I just made these tonight. SOOO GOOD!!!
Why cornstarch? Does it help make them crisp?
Yes it sure does!
I like to pre prepare or make meals on Sunday… Can I cut these up before hand so I can toss in oven when I get home. If so should I put them in water over night?
I have not tried doing them ahead of time. It would be worth a try!
