Once you take a bite, you won’t be able to stop.

I had never eaten sweet potato fries until my mother made them one day or they were SO CRISPY or delicious that I was absolutely hooked. Since then, I’ve been slightly obsessed.

Prep ahead

We’re always looking for ways to reduce time in the kitchen or simplify healthy eating, especially throughout the week. While these fries are super simple to toss together, we often chop our potatoes on our food prep day or the night before. It really helps to reduce stress, save time or simplify dinner on busy weeknights.

How to cut potatoes for fries

  • In order for your fries to bake evenly, it’s important for them to be cut the same size.
  • Slice the ends of sweet potatoes off, then cut in half lengthwise (hot dog style). Cut strips again into smaller strips, about 1/2-inch wide.
  • Don’t cut your fries too thin (like a matchstick), or they may burn. We’ve found fries that were around 1/2-inch wide or 3 to 4 inches in length worked best.

Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries (+ Secret Sauce)


Description

There’s nothing like a healthy version of a crunchy seasoned french fry. These Sweet Potato Fries make an easy and delicious gluten-free side. The Jalapeno Secret Sauce featured in this recipe is flavorful and guaranteed to excite your taste buds!


Ingredients

Scale

Jalapeño Secret Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
  • Jalapeño, finely chopped (1/4 teaspoon – 1 teaspoon, depending on heat of pepper; can substitute with 1/4
  • teaspoon cayenne pepper or a few dashes of hot sauce)

Sweet Potato Steak Fries:


Instructions

Jalapeño Secret Sauce:

  1. Combine ingredients in a small bowl. Mix together and set aside.

Fries:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and grease baking sheet with EVOO spray.
  2. Slice the ends of sweet potatoes off, then cut in half lengthwise (hot dog style). Cut strips again into smaller strips, about 1/2-inch wide.
  3. In a large bowl, toss sliced sweet potatoes in EVOO, Spice Right blend and a pinch of salt. (We typically use our hands to massage the oil and seasoning into the potato slices.)
  4. Place sweet potatoes on baking sheet in a single, even layer, leaving space around each fry. Use two baking sheets if necessary. Roast in oven for 15 minutes. Flip the sweet potatoes and continue to roast for an additional 10-15 minutes. Sweet potatoes should be tender on the inside and crispy on the outside.
  5. Depending on your desired level of crispiness, you can broil fries for 2 minutes on high. Remove from oven and enjoy warm fries with secret sauce!
  6. Fries will stay good in the fridge for about 5 days.

Notes

Paleo-friendly/vegan: Omit the secret sauce.
