There are many recipes for baked sweet potato fries flying around on the internet and I’ve made many of them. We eat sweet potato fries about once a week around here, so I’ve had lots of opportunities for testing.
And I can tell you this: they all come out pretty much the same. I’ve tried soaking the potatoes, coating them in some sort of flour, baking at all different temperatures for different lengths of time. What I’ve discovered is that simple is best. And super tasty.
One great thing about this recipe is that the baking temperature is flexible. If you’re just baking your fries, with nothing else in the oven, 425 is the desired temperature. But if you happen to also have something else in the oven that needs to bake at 375, that’s ok too. Or you can bake at a higher temperature if something else requires it. They will take longer to bake at a lower temperature and will be done sooner if baked at a higher temperature. But you knew that already.
Bottom line: when you have a craving for french fries, make these! You’ll be glad you did.
