Roasted Sweet Potato Steak Fries

These roasted sweet potato steak fries are simple yet totally delicious. Sweet potatoes are tossed in olive oil and seasonings and baked until crispy!

Four ingredients… Yup… just four… seriously!

Sweet potatoes… Salt… Pepper and Olive Oil.

What I love most about these roasted sweet potato steak fries is that the outside gets all crispy but the insides are soft and buttery. Oh yeah baby. Like buttah. This recipe comes from… well… from having three sweet potatoes in my pantry and having to use them before they grow things.


Gross things… know-what-I-mean?

Sweet potatoes.

Cut the potatoes into thick wedges.

Start by cutting them in  half and then into thick wedges. I have no good reason why I didn’t take pictures of this crucial step, other than I was making dinner and must have forgotten.

Drizzle with olive oil and toss.

Next season with kosher salt and a few turns of the black pepper grinder.

Spread them out evenly over a foil lined baking sheet, for easy clean up, and place in a preheated 425 degree oven for 15 minutes. Toss and back in for 10 more minutes. They are done when they are crispy and a dark golden color, and when a knife pierces easily.

These roasted sweet potato steak fries are so delicious… crispy outside… soft buttery inside.

I could eat the whole sheet pan of these roasted sweet potato steak fries and not feel a single pang of guilt… why would I?  It’s a whole months worth of vitamins!?!

    I love making sweet potato fries with cumin. There's something about the sweetness of the veg with the flavour of the cumin that works really well!

    I do love sweet potato fries, you don't take the skin off, that would make them faster to make. Hope you had a great holiday!
