Sweet Potato Oven Fries

Makes 2 Servings


  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • cajun seasoning (optional) (I used Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning)


1. Preheat oven to 500°F. Position oven rack in the middle of oven. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, toss sweet potato wedges with olive oil to coat. Spread the wedges out on the cookie sheet so that they are not touching one another. Sprinkle with kosher salt and cajun seasoning if you like them with a little kick. Bake for 9 minutes, then take fries out from oven and turn them over using a fork and spoon. Return fries to oven and bake for 9 more minutes. Fries should be tender and lightly browned.
