WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CUT THESE POTATOES?

I find that the best way that these potatoes bake is when we cut them into long strips about 1/4-1/2 inch wide. If they are cut too thin or narrow, they will char too quickly in the oven. 

WHAT DIPPING SAUCES GO WITH SWEET POTATO FRIES?

You can really serve this with any of your favorite dipping sauces. We really like garlic aioli, ranch, bbq sauce, and ketchup.

But they can go with anything, so I say you can dip them in whatever you want or have on hand, or they are great just the way they are.

CAN OTHER SEASONINGS BE USED?

If you want more of a seasoning flavor for these Oven Sweet Potato Fries, you can absolutely do that. Some of our favorite seasoning blends include: blackening, creole, and old bay.

If you want to add some spice to these, you can add some cayenne or chipotle powder.

If you are using a seasoning blend, I would recommend using half the salt called for in the recipe.

HOW TO STORE:

While these will always be best when they are first made, you can store them in an airtight container with a paper towel and keep them in the refrigerator, where they will keep for up to 4 days.

Reheat in the oven until warmed through and crispy. I do not recommend freezing these.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • This recipe can easily be doubled.
  • Serve with any of your favorite dipping sauces.
  • Other seasonings can be used, see above on some suggestions.
  • I do not recommend freezing these.
