Baked Sweet Potato Fries Recipe
These baked sweet potato fries are great as a side with burgers. They have a smoky sweet taste and are a healthy alternative to deep fried fries.
- 2 large sweet potatoes peeled
- 2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
- 1/2 teaspoon pink salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 °C). You can use a baking sheet coated in oil or baking paper for these fires. Prepare the baking tray or baking paper by using some oil to thinly coat the surface.
Place sweet potatoes and soybean oil in a resealable plastic bag or a large bowl and toss gently. Add in the corn starch, salt, black pepper, paprika and garlic powder and toss again. Make sure the fries are evenly coated with all the ingredients.
Arrange the potatoes in one layer on the prepared baking tray. Make sure they don't overlap as this helps the fries crisp up well.
Bake for 20 minutes on one side, remove from the oven and flip over. Bake for 10 minutes on the other side. Remove and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
