Oven-baked Sweet Potato Fries

This was our SuperBowl Sunday snack tofu japadog with oven baked sweet potato fries.


Oven baked sweet potato fries are a delicious alternative to the standard deep-fried


2 pounds sweet potatoes

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon course kosher salt, adjust to taste

1/4 teaspoon paprika


Preheat oven to 450ºF. Generously coat baking sheet with vegetable cooking spray or olive oil. Peel sweet potatoes. Cut into 1/2-inch thick sticks that are approximately 4 to 5-inches long, or cut into wedges.


Place potatoes into a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle potatoes with seasonings and stir until potatoes are evenly coated.


Place potatoes in a single layer on baking sheet. Potatoes may need to be baked in 2 separate batches.

Bake approximately 10 minutes.

Remove and turn potatoes over, return to oven.


Bake potatoes an additional 20 minutes or until done. Season to taste, sprinkle some sweet paprika and serve hot.
