  • 3-4 sweet potatoes peeled and sliced into ¼-inch sticks
  • 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Prepare two large baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
  • Wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Use a sharp knife to slice close to the edge of one long side of a sweet potato, then set it on the flat, stable side and cut into ¼-inch planks. Stack the planks and slice again into ¼-inch sticks. Repeat with all of the sweet potatoes.
  • Soak the fries in ice water for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours in the fridge to remove excess starch. Drain well and pat dry.
  • Transfer the fries to a large ziploc bag and add the cornstarch, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, and black pepper. Toss to coat, then drizzle with the olive oil and toss again.
  • Arrange the fries in a single layer with space between the fries so they can get crispy rather than steam while they bake. Bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through, until crispy on the outside and tender inside.
  • Immediately sprinkle the fries with the salt after removing from the oven, then serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce!
