Delicious oven-fried yam strips seasoned to your taste. Hints: Use a non-stick foil on the baking sheet. A wire cooling rack on top of a baking sheet will let the oven air circulate around the sweet potato pieces and you don't have to turn them. Preheating the baking sheet, will help the fries get crisp.

Recipe Ingredients for Oven baked sweet potato fries

32 oz Yam
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp packed Sugars, Brown
3 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp cinnamon

Recipe Directions for Oven baked sweet potato fries

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. (For more crispiness, preheat your oven to 500F.)

  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut off the ends. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and then, if they are very long, in half crosswise. Cut each piece into wedges. Alternately, you can slice the peeled sweet potato into disks either with a mandoline or a sharp knife.

  3. Put the sweet potatoes into a large bowl and add the oil. Mix well to combine. Sprinkle with salt, sugar and spices of your choice. Use your hands to mix well, so all pieces are coated with oil and spices.

  4. Spread the sweet potatoes out in a single layer on a baking sheet; the oil they are coated with should keep them from sticking to the pan.

  5. Bake for a total of 25 to 30 minutes. After the first 15 minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven and turn over all of the sweet potato pieces. Return to the oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until they are well browned. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
