Sweet Potato Fries
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 large Sweet Potato, peeled
  • Olive Oil Spray (any oil will work really)
  • Seasoning Mix (Recipe below)
  • Small bowl of water
  • Honey (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 475F.
  2. Cut the potato into long skinny strips.
  3. Mix the ingredients for the seasoning mix in a container, one with an air tight lid.
  4. Dip the potatoes in the water and shake off any excess.
  5. Drop the potatoes into the seasoning mix, put the lid on and shake until all the potatoes are well-coated.
  6. Spray a large baking sheet with the olive oil (don't saturate the pan, but coat it well) and lay the seasoned potatoes on the pan, in a single layer, not touching each other.
  7. Bake for 5-7 minutes and then flip the fries and bake for another 5-7 minutes.
  8. Let cool. Lightly drizzle with honey, if desired. And I mean super lightly, just barely enough to taste.
  9. *Toss any extra seasonings. It's not much. Besides, the sugars clump, the flour dissolves and it's more mess the second time around with leftover seasonings. It's not worth it. That's actually why some of my fries are a little scorched, there wasn't enough flour in some leftover seasoning and the sugars scorched. It didn't taste bad, but my pans were a tragic mess. I had to let them soak for two days before I got everything off. Usually it's not big deal to clean them. So, be warned. You can save them, but add extra flour before you use it again to prevent the burnt sugar.
