Crispy Sweet Potato Fries

I have seriously  been on a sweet potato kick lately, I just can’t get enough of ’em! These looked delicious and I’ve been wanting to make them for a while now. Original can be found here: http://www.theartofdoingstuff.com/guaranteed-crispy-sweet-potato-fries-sriracha-mayo-dip/

So, here’s what you need…

2 sweet potatoes

2 tbls cornstarch

olive oil

sea salt and pepper

These are super easy…first, peel and slice your sweet potatoes. Make the slices moderately thick, if they are too thin they will just burn in the oven. Once those puppies are sliced you need to soak them in water for 30 minutes to an hour. Don’t they look like carrots?!

Next, put your cornstarch in a big ziplock bag and shake your sweet potatoes up. They don’t need to have a thick coating, just lightly coated. Too thick and you will have the flavor of the cornstarch even after you cook them.

Now, spread them out on a cookie sheet making sure they have plenty of space in-between each fry. Too close and they won’t crisp up. The original recipe said to drizzle olive oil over the fries, but I used my olive oil spritzer. Then I sprinkled sea salt and pepper.

Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, flipping them over after 10 minutes. I served our sweet potato fries with crunchy onion pork chops (also Pinterest!) and a mozzarella, tomato, pesto mix. Oh, and of course RANCH for dipping!

These were a HUGE hit with my husband! He loved them, I loved them. 5 out of 5 stars! I will certainly be making them again 🙂

Have you made the crispy sweet potato fries? What did you think?
