Sweet Potato Fries



I love fries.  It’s one of the best reasons I may go to a fast-food restaurant for the fries.  And sweet potato fries were the rave a little bit ago but for me they still are.  It’s something different to order at a restaurant other than a fast-food restaurant.  They have a slight sweetness to them and with a few savory spices it will balance that sweetness.   I serve them with a simple aioli but feel free to change up the spices used to make the fries and aioli.  The possibilities are many.

Sweet Potato Fries


  • 3-4 Sweet Potatoes
  • Canola Oil (you can substitute melted butter if desired)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 ½ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 4 tsp Cornstarch
  • ¼-1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • Parsley, finely chopped for garnish if desired

Spicy Aioli – 

  •    ½ cup Mayonnaise 
  •    1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  •    3 tsp Spicy Brown Mustard
  •    1-2 Garlic cloves, minced
  •    1 tsp Hot Paprika
  •    Salt and Pepper


  • Preheat oven to 425
  • In a small bowl mix together salt and pepper, garlic powder, smoked paprika and cornstarch.  In a large bowl or on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet, drizzle the oil or melted butter to coat the fries.  Sprinkle the fries with the spice cornstarch mixture until well coated.  
  • Roast the fries for about 10-15 minutes.  Then flip or turn over the fries oven to cook the other side.  (this will help to bake crispier fries on the outside).  Bake for another 10-15 minutes until crisps but not burnt (because of the sugar content in sweet potatoes don’t burn them) 
  • Note:  to say a little time, place the fries on a cooking rack on a baking sheet and this will cook on both sides without having to flip them.  
  • While the fries are baking, make the aioli sauce if using.  In a small bowl combine all the ingredients and thoroughly mix together.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley.  Serve immediately with the aioli sauce on the side.
