Oven-Baked Seasoned Sweet Potato Fries

01 May

My opinion is biased of course, but I think my Sweet Potato Fries are the best. I have yet to find a restaurant that serves good sweet potato fries. They’re never seasoned properly, are fried, or are overdone.

Seasoned Sweet Potato Fries


  • 1 Sweet Potato
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp Creole (Cajun) seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Coarse Sea Salt to taste

1. Preheat oven to 425. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper, set aside.

2. Wash the sweet potato, cut off the ends, then divide into 3 even sections. Cut each section in half, resembling a half moon. Slice each half moon into 1/2 inch section. Slice the sections into 3 or 4 even fries. The result should be 2 in x 1/4 Julienne fries.

3. Place the fries in a medium bowl that does not have ridges (ridges make it hard to clean out olive oil). Add one teaspoon of olive oil at a time, stir with a spatula after each addition to even coat each fry. Sprinkle the Creole seasoning evenly, stir. Sprinkle the garlic powder evenly, stir.

4. Pour the fries on the parchment paper lined cookie sheet and use the spatula to spread the out. It’s okay if thy touch or overlap a little. It won’t interfere with their cooking. Lightly sprinkle the fries with coarse garlic salt. Cook for 15 minutes, use a spatula to flip the fries, spread them out again, the cook for 15 more.

Since the sweet potatoes are naturally sweet, I sprinkle them with the coarse sea salt again before serving.

      It isn’t. You can’t have sweet potatoes while on Medifast. I don’t believe I flagged it as a Medifast recipe. It’s not listed on my Medifast recipe page and I didn’t use Medifast as a tag. Not all of the recipes on my blog are Medifast friendly. Only the recipes on the Medifast recipes page.
