Looking for a fantastic side item? These oven-baked sweet potato fries are an easy and frugal side and are a huge hit at dinner!

Does anyone else opt to get sweet potato fries when they’re at a restaurant? I don’t know what it is, but something about those delicious, sweet, and salty potatoes just grab me and call my name. I wouldn’t say they’re any healthier than regular fries, because, well… they’re still fries. But they’re a great alternative to regular potatoes, and I’ve been making these oven-baked sweet potato fries for awhile and love them! I feel like I’ve perfected my recipe to make them firm enough to pick up but not burnt to a crisp.

The best part is, you can use whatever seasonings you want depending on what you’re making with them. My current favorite is adobo seasoning, but I’ve also used chili powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, taco seasoning, and just plain salt and pepper. It’s all good!

Unfortunately, once you put the leftovers in the fridge, these sweet potato fries tend to get a little soggy and limp. I haven’t tried to put them back in the oven for a few minutes, but that’s certainly an option!

I get my sweet potatoes at Aldi. At my store, they’re currently $1.59 for a 3-pound bag, which is about $.53 per pound! I can’t find a deal like that anywhere else. And in the fall/winter when these bags are only $.69… you can bet I’ll be making sweet potatoes every night. These oven-baked sweet potato fries are great for any occasion, so give them a try and let me know what you think!

Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1.5 pounds sweet potatoes (3-4 medium potatoes)
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil, or oil of choice
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning (Adobo, garlic powder, chili powder, etc.)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Wash and scrub the sweet potatoes, then pat dry. On a cutting board, slice off the ends of each potato and carefully cut in half long-ways. Slice each half into thin strips, cutting each strip in half again if they're too wide.
  3. Place the fries in a large bowl and mix with the oil and seasoning. Dump them onto a cookie sheet, arranging them in neat rows so they cook evenly.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, pulling out halfway through to flip over the fries.
