Sweet potato fries in the oven

These Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries are so addictive! Sweet potato slices drizzled with oil, sprinkled with spices and baked at high heat until browned and crispy around the edges. Try them yourself.

What will we need

  • 1 kg sweet potatoes (about 3 large ones)
  • 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • Spice Combination: Chili Powder, Smoked Paprika, Chinese Five Spice Blend, Pumpkin Pie Spice, Garam Masala, Cajun Spice, etc.


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Place a baking tray or baking trays in the oven to preheat.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut off the ends.
  • Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and then crosswise if they are very long.
  • Place the sweet potatoes in a large bowl and add the oil. Mix well to combine.
  • Sprinkle with salt and spices of your choice. Mix well with your hands to coat all the pieces in the oil and spices.
  • Remove the preheated baking sheet from the oven. Carefully spread the sweet potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15 to 25 minutes.
  • After the first 10 minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven and use tongs to turn all the sweet potato pieces.
  • Return to the oven and bake for another 5 to 15 minutes, or until browned.
  • The baking time depends on the oven temperature and the size of the slices.

The browner they get, the crispier they get, but there’s a fine line between browned and burnt that’s inedible. Even if they get really dark, they should still be good because the sweet potatoes caramelize the natural sugars. So watch closely.
