Sweet Potato French Fries (Yum!)

Ontario Sweet Potato French Fries

Although Ontario sweet potatoes aren't in season in February, they can be stored through most of the winter.  And that  means french fries!


Sweet Potatoes



olive oil/corn oil

Sour Cream

  1. Peel your sweet potatoes
  2. Cut them up into french fries. It's easiest to cut each potato in half lengthwise, then lay the flat side down and make 1/4 inch slices lengthwise, and then to cut each piece to your desired french fry dimensions.  Be careful not to cut yourself!
  3. Preheat oven to 375F
  4. Place your french fries in a pot and add enough water to cover them.  Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and drain off all the water (new step- this keeps your fries from absorbing so much oil)
  5. Toss fries with oil, salt and pepper.  Use enough oil to coat them.
  6. Spread out on a baking sheet; bake for 20-25 min until crispy on the outside and cooked on the inside.  Flip them half way through
  7. Allow your yummy Ontario Sweet Potato fries to cool and serve them with sour cream!

  1. Hello Kendra,
    I like that recipe for the sweet potato fries and I will hopefully try it soon.
    You look pretty healthy there on that post Kendra.
    I can smell the spring and it is around the corner but I don’t know which corner.

  2. One thing on the sweet potato recipe- it helps if you parboil your fries, drain the water off, then coat with oil and put in the oven. If you just stick them in the oven, they do tend to absorb alot more oil.
