4 INGREDIENT SWEET POTATO FRIES

Hello everyone! Today I am posting two posts (how special!). This one and then a paprika french fry recipe. If you want to check out the paprika fries click here. This recipe is a really simple baked fries that you can make ahead of time or same day. I really love making my own fries, especially sweet potato ones!  

Sweet Potato French Fries

2 Sweet Potatoes 1 tsp. Dried Basil Leaves Sea Salt for taste 1 tbs. Olive Oil

The basic ingredients! Basil leaves, sea salt and of course sweet potatoes.

Peel and cut your potato into french fry pieces. The key is to make them small enough to get crispy on the outside but easily cook through on the inside. I cut mine about a 1/2 inch thick or so.

Soak the pieces in water to get the extra starch out. This helps them crisp up faster.

Then toss them in the olive oil, paprika and sea salt. You can do this on the baking sheet.

Pop them in the oven on the middle rack for 20 minutes. They should be shrinking a little and gaining color.

For another 15-20 minutes place them on the top rack to get crispy.

Take them out of the oven and boom! I love eating my sweet potato fries with sriracha. 😋

That’s it! I know! You can serve them right away or save them in the fridge/ freezer. It isn’t too difficult to make your own fries from home. You can even make them in advance and save them for dinner during the week! They are also a little healthier than the ones from the freezer section because they are fresher. (not saying anything is wrong with those cause your girl can get down with those too lol). I hope you guys found both of these recipes helpful! Try them out and let me know how it goes😋
