Garlic Sweet Potato Fries - Real Plans

Sweet potato fries deliver the sort of magical bite that’s simultaneously sweet, salty, and crunchy. If you want a crisp, slightly caramelized exterior on your fries — have patience and let them bake for the full thirty minutes.

Orange sweet potatoes have a higher water content than the starchier varieties with a white or purple flesh. They’re also sweeter. This means that when baked, your sweet potato fries will taste rich and creamy. A sprinkle of fresh parsley and a hit of just-cooked garlic makes all things right in the world.

You may want to enjoy your fries with a dab of homemade sriracha . Just sayin!

  • Not crispy. Fries need clearer instructions in order to make sure fries are crispy. They weren’t crispy.

  • Major meh. The fries were not anywhere close to done being cooked after 30 minutes in the oven. I finally ended up moving them in batches to my air fryer to try to get them to have any semblance of crispiness. Way too much effort for very little payoff. I’d rather keep it simple and just eat a baked sweet potato.
