Spicy baked sweet potato fries

I decided to make sweet potato fries last night instead of the regular chips. I used the following seasonings (you can definitely substitute with whatever you have).....sorry, no exact measurements again, you know how I work.....just a pinch of this and a dash of that....it's all up to your taste preferences. I also added some olive oil.
I cut my sweet potatoes (I only used 2) into thin slices and threw them into a big ziploc bag.....and then, I added all the seasonings & oil into the bag.
Once you are done adding the seasonings....seal up the ziploc and give the potato slices some good swoshing around until they are evenly coated. Judging by the color in the ziploc bag, I knew I had gone a little overboard with the curry powder.....oopsie!
Preheat your oven to 350F. Spread the fries on parchment paper on a baking sheet and leave in the oven (top rack) to bake for about 50min. I flipped the fries once midway through baking.
I served my sweet potato fries on the side with my grilled pork chops. Yummy but lotsa ice water required to take away the heat from the curry powder & pepper! :P


  1. This is a healthy way of eating tasty chips. I like mine boiled whole and then baked.

  2. @busygran: sounds good. may i know how long to boil and bake? and at what oven temperature? always game to try some new ways of cooking healthy! :D
