How To Make Sweet Potato Fries

- Bake on the sheet pan in a pre heated oven.
- Serve with an extra drizzle of honey and chopped parsley.
Can you make them ahead of time?
These fries are best served straight out of the oven, but you can prep them ahead of time. You can cut he sweet potatoes a couple of days ahead – keep them in the fridge in cold water so that they don’t dry out.
You can season the fries a few hours before you need to bake them.
Why are the fries soggy?
Your fries will come out of the oven wet if you have over crowded the sheet pan. Place them in a single layer over two pans or cook them in batches. If you lay the fries on top of each other, they will steam rather than crisp up.
Fry them for super crispy fries
I prefer to oven bake these fries, it’s a more hands off process and healthier too. However, if you opt for frying, you will get a super crunchy side. You can deep fry them or use an air fryer.
- I found that drizzling honey over the sweet potato fries after their finished baking does contribute to some of the sogginess, but I found that the flavor outweighed the texture. It’s optional.
- These fries work well with any meal where you would usually serve fries. Chicken, fish and meat dishes all work great.
- Make them vegan by swapping the honey for maple syrup.
