Seasoned Sweet Potato Fries
This Seasoned Sweet Potato Fries recipe will knock your socks off!
Sunday was a fun-filled day with friends as we watched the team that I have been a life-long fan of win the Big Game. It was a great day to get together and share good food, good conversation, and a great football game. (Even the kids had a great time!)

Part of my preparation for the Big Game was to make those Baby Back Ribs I posted a couple weeks ago again. These sweet, spicy, and oh-so-good Kansas City style ribs were a hit among the crowd. On the side, I served these incredible Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries. Now, I don’t normally associate sweet potato fries with Kansas City style BBQ, but I had a pile of sweet potatoes that needed to be used so that’s what we had.
Seasoning–Not your Ordinary Sweet Potato Fry!
What makes these fries different than the hundreds of other sweet potato fries I have had over the years is the seasoning blend. I made a batch with a lighter amount of seasoning and another batch with a heavier amount of seasoning, and honestly, I liked the heavily seasoned fries better. They had a zing to them that put them over the top.
How to Prepare Sweet Potato Fries
These fries were also rather easy for party food since I prepped them earlier in the day then put them in a bowl of water in the refrigerator. The prep work on these really isn’t a ton of work. Just peel the sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch thick steak fries, drop in some water and refrigerate.
How to Make Sweet Potato Fries
Once it is time to cook the fries, just pat dry with a paper towel before seasoning. It is then time to coat the fries with seasoning. Coating the fries consists of mixing up the seasoning blend, lightly coating the fries with some olive oil, then tossing them with the seasoning.
I then used my favorite pizza pan to cook these. I find these pans with the holes in them make incredibly crispy pizza–my favorite–and do a great job at cooking items like fries as well. If you don’t have one of these, I would highly recommend them!
