Sweet potato fries

I love sweet potato fries! When I did whole 30, I made them all the time and have loved them ever since. They make a great side dish for hamburgers, hot dogs, steak or grilled chicken. Sometimes I’ll even make them for a snack. These baked sweet potato fries are so crispy and are seasoned to perfection. I love to dip them in an easy fry sauce that I whip up, but there are lots of different condiment options that would taste great! YUM!

Making sweet potato fries is super easy! I love to make my own recipe because they are so much healthier than store-bought and taste even more delicious! Just follow the simple instructions below to get started.

How do you make sweet potato fries crispy?

  • Make sure to cut your sweet potatoes 1/4″ thick
  • Soak your sweet potatoes in cold water for 30 minutes (it draws out the extra starch and moisture)
  • Line your pans with foil or parchment paper
  • Add the sweet potato fries to a bag and shake 2 teaspoons of cornstarch on top so you have a thin coating.
  • Use canola, grapeseed, sunflower, or peanut oil for a crispier edge.
  • Make sure to line the sweet potatoes fries in a single layer, don’t crowd the pan.
  • Flip the fries half way through baking to make sure each side is evenly crisp.

Sauce for baked sweet potato fries

  1. Combine 1/4 cup mayo and 1 1/2 Tablespoons ketchup. Add a dash of seasoned salt.
  2. Mix until combined and serve with the sweet potato fries.

If you’re looking for a yummy condiment to dip your fries in, try this fry sauce! It may sound weird, but if you’ve ever been to Utah, they serve it everywhere. It is SO easy to make and my family loves it. If you’re doing the whole 30, you can make a compliant homemade mayo and use Tessamaes ketchup. The fries also taste great with creamy ranch or honey mustard.
