I have finally made the perfect homemade sweet potato fries! I’m excited. I love sweet potato all cut up, baked with a little spice to it. Sweet potato is the healthiest, cooked vegetable that my whole family likes.
My mother-in-law bought us a *French Fry press, and despite my occasional inability to get a sweet potato through it without the help of my husband, I love it! Perfect cuts causing even cooking as they are all the same size.
With all the fries in a bowl, I drizzle just enough EVOO over then to coat them… barely, I go as light as possible. Then I choose our favorite spices to mix in. 1 – 1 1/2 tsp of chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. If you don’t want to use onion powder, you can dice up half a small onion.
The trick is to not crowd your baking sheet. I use two sheets, spread the potato out thin. Bake at 425 for about 20-25. Flipping then half way through. We bake ours till they are crispy, but not burnt. (We have a child that won’t eat anything that looks like it could be burnt.)
