I think Sweet Potato French Fries baked to crispy perfection are the best snack ever. Since they’re baked and not fried, I feel less guilty about eating them. Now, you can imagine me sipping my cup of Ginger tea with these crispy Sweet potato fries :)..
I think my french fry slicing technique has also improved. It still needs improvement but I was happy with the outcome. The potatoes have to be sliced in even thickness or they will not bake properly. Some will bake faster and others might not turn crispy. I just sliced them in 3 inch length and 1/4th inch thickness. So, sharing the Sweet Potato French Fries Recipe today. You can choose seasoning of your choice. I just used some black pepper, red chilli flakes, dried oregano and salt for seasoning. Bake them and enjoy with your family…
****You can alternatively deep fry them in oil. If you choose to deep fry, add seasoning after frying them.
