Sweet Potato Fries


Sweet Potato Fries

These are sweet, crisp-edged, and delicious. Feel free to ignore our wedge-cutting instructions. You can cut the sweet potato however you like: into rounds, sticks, or even cubes. The trick is making them all the same thickness so that they’re done cooking at the same time — and making them thin enough that they cook through without burning.

  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife (adult needed)
  • Large bowl
  • Measuring spoon
  • Large rimmed baking sheet
  • Pot holders


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed clean
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Turn the oven on and set the heat to 425 degrees.
  • Cut each sweet potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half in half again, and then each quarter in half once again once more. You will end up with 8 wedges from each potato.
  • Put the sweet potatoes, oil, and salt in the bowl and use your clean hands to mix well.
  • Dump everything onto the baking sheet, spread the potatoes out evenly, and bake until golden and tender, about 35 minutes. Serve right away.
