Bon Appetit: Sweet Potato Fries

Any given day, I would rather have a sweet potato fry than a regular potato fry. It’s been my quest since I moved into this new apartment to find the perfect sweet potato fry. After a lot of tries…most of them extremely mediocre…I have achieved the perfect, delicious sweet potato fry. This is a really great recipe, because you can pair it with my recipe for roasted broccoli too! These one sheet pan meals/sides are so easy and delicious. Plus, it’s less to clean! Everyone loves that.

Sweet Potato Fries


  • Sweet Potato, quantity and size are your choosing
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Seasoning Salt
  • Paprika
  • Olive Oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Chop up your sweet potato. You can do more of a fry shape, but I like the more “rustic” chop pictured above.
  3. Drizzle on olive oil. This was a fairly small sweet potato, so I used about 2 tablespoons. You want them to be just moist (not overly oiled). Stir.
  4. Add cornstarch. For my small sweet potato, I used about a teaspoon. Stir until you can’t really see any more white of the cornstarch.
  5. Add seasoning. You can really do whatever you’d like here. Add some Chili Powder, Ranch seasoning, etc. Stir until fries are covered.
  6. Lay out on a cookie sheet, and bake for 25-30 minutes. Depending on the size of your sweet potato fries, they may take more or less time.

That’s it! Super easy to do. To cook the broccoli with mine, I put the sweet potato fries in for five minutes, and then added the broccoli for the other 20 minutes. Of course, I enjoyed the sweet potato fries with my everything sauce!
