Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

Average: 2.4 (27 votes)

Love french fries but aren't crazy about the fat that comes with them? Try substituting your usual culprit with these sweet potato fries instead! 

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 to 40 minutes
  • Serves: 6
  • From: Bonnie Stern and Fran Berkoff


  1. Peel potatoes and cut into sticks like fries. Place in a large bowl and toss with oil.
  2. Prepare rub by combining chili powder, paprika and salt in a small bowl. Toss with potatoes.  Arrange in a single layer on one or two parchment-lined baking sheets. Roast in a preheated 425°F (220°C) oven for 20 to 25  minutes or until browned on the bottom.  Turn potatoes over and roast 10 to 15 minutes longer, until tender, crisp and nicely browned.

Bonnie says: These sweet potato fries are great as a side dish, a snack or serve them as an appetizer with a dip.

Fran says: One serving of these fries contains about 199 calories and two grams of fat. Compare that to a medium order of fries at a fast-food chain—about 360 calories and 17 grams of fat.
