Homemade Sweet Potato Fries

I like to cook as often as I can from scratch with good wholesome foods. I don't like eating processed or packaged foods as they can contain so many unnecessary ingredients. While it does take a few extra moments to prepare fresh food, it can add years to your life! Make sure your preparation methods will retain the nutrients.

Last week, my Dad returned from a road trip to South Carolina and brought back some amazing sweet potatoes from a friend's farm! He literally had a huge brown paper bag full of sweet potatoes! ... you could tell they were straight from the ground.. there was dirt in the bottom of the bag! LOL. I digress...

Anyway, my Dad gave me several sweet potatoes and I've been incorporating them into several of my meals! Last night I opted for HOMEMADE SWEET POTATO FRIES.

There is no rhythm or reason to my recipe, I just know what I like and I prepare it...

Here is what you need (Serves 2):
1-2 sweet potatoes
Olive Oil
Seasoning pack

Directions to prepare seasoning pack:
In a ziplock bag, combine Pink Himalayan Salt, Fresh Ground Pepper, Turmeric, Old Bay Seasoning, Oregano, pinch of Cayenne Pepper and shake until spices are well blended.

1. Clean and wash sweet potatoes thoroughly. Use a vegetable scrubber to remove some of the skin and leave some on.
2. Cut the sweet potatoes in half, then slice into 1/4 pieces, then slice the pieces in half again to create fries.
3. Toss the sliced sweet potatoes in olive oil, just enough to coat. Place evenly on lined sprayed pan.
4. Season fries with season pack.
5. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes, turning once.

Viola!!! These are delicious.... I'll probably make some more tonight and will take better pictures.

J'adore Homemade Sweet Potato Fries


  1. Great recipe, i like them a lot. Thanks for sharing hun :)

  2. Thanks! It's a great alternative to regular fries....

  3. Great idea! Although, your sweet potato fries are more white in color, mine are orange like the one you find in frozen foods section of grocery store. I'm addicted to sweet potato fries, this is my first attempt at homemade, I don't have some of your seasons - Pink Himalayan Salt? Never heard of it! Here's hoping my first batch comes out tasty! :-)

  4. thanks! These were fresh sweet potatoes (I think they look a little white from my camera :/ ...) They are delicious and sooo easy to prrepare. Let me know how they turn out please! You can use pink Himalayan salt or Celtic sea salt. I like the taste of the pink himalayan with these fries. You can find it at just about any natural food store. lmk how they turn out!
