Zippy Sweet Potato Oven Fries

Sweet Potato Fries fresh from the oven - the small portion on the
left is oil-free and seasoning free for comparison.
These fries are the perfect evening snack or light lunch. They're super-healthy, but also ultra-tasty and fun to snack on. Of course, they're also a great side-dish with your favorite veggie burger.

Even some people who aren't Sweet Potato fans can enjoy them this way.

Zippy Sweet Potato Oven Fries
Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Line pan with Non-Stick foil (or, use a good quality nonstick pan -the natural sugars in these potatoes carmelize a bit during roasting which makes them prone to sticking)

Cut a sweet potato in medium size fry shapes - I peel mine - your choice.
Toss with about 2 tsp oil *
sprinkle with
Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper Seasoning, or your favorite Lemon Pepper Seasoning Salt (optional)
spread on pan
bake 20 minutes
turn with spatula
bake 10 minutes more

*I have made these without oil, they turn out acceptably well, but they do crisp better on the outside with a wee bit of oil.
Cut, Seasoned Sweet Potatoes before Baking.


  1. Yum, I love sweet potato fries :) I usually sprinkle some curry powder on mine for some extra yummyness :)

  2. Awesome!!!! It seems the older I get the more I like these! Yours sound even better!


Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
