These Crispy Sweet Potato Fries are the PERFECT side dish. And they’re so easy to make with mostly hands-off cooking time in the oven. I love to pair mine with this addicting honey mustard dipping sauce, too. While they are crispy when they come straight from the oven, it’s easy to make a large batch and eat them throughout the week for meal prep. They do get soft once they are stored, but you can crisp them back up again inside the oven or toaster oven.

Soaking sweet potatoes in water for crispy friesTips for Making Crispy Sweet Potato Fries:

  1. Cut sweet potato fries into the same size. It helps them cook easily.
  2. Soak the sweet potatoes for about 10 minutes. This helps bring out some of the starch.
  3. Don’t overcrowd the baking sheet. Make sure to lay the fries flat on the sheet pan, leaving space in between each fry.
  4. Flip the fries, halfway through baking! This ensures both sides get crispy

To Peel, or Not to Peel

Peeling the skin off the sweet potato is totally up to you! It doesn’t make a difference either way. Though the skin has extra fiber, which can be a bonus!
