30-minute Baked Sweet Potato Fries

This week my father-in-love got two 40 lb. boxes of sweet potatoes from a nearby farm. That’s 80 pounds of potatoes. That’s a lot of potatoes!!

So naturally we brought some home, and I’ll be experimenting with sweet potato recipes all week!

First up: 30-minute BAKED Sweet Potato Fries

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

What you’ll need:

  • 2 or 3 medium-sized sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons of flour (or cornstarch)
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

What you’ll do:

  1. Slice up your sweet potatoes nice and thin.
  2. Let the sliced potatoes soak in water for about 10-15 minutes to soften.
  3. Drain the water and add your flour. Shake to lightly coat all of your fries with the flour.
  4. On a well-oiled baking sheet, lay all of your fries out flat. Be sure they don’t touch (unless you want one big blob!)
  5. Make a mixture of the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle half of the mixture onto the fries.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove your fries from the oven, flip them, sprinkle the other half of the cinnamon sugar mixture (along with some more oil if they’re looking dry) on your fries.
  8. Return to the oven for 10 more minutes.

Ta-da! The result will be crispy-on-the-outside yet soft-on-the-inside sweet potato fries!! They were delicious! I think I found my new quick and easy side dish!
