Roasted Sweet Potato Fries
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen with a healthier option for fries—Roasted Sweet Potato Fries. Easy peasy and tasty, too.

The Glycemic Index of a sweet potato is about half that of a white potato. I like sweet potatoes most ways. Roasted Sweet Potato Fries top my list.

You Will Need a Good Pan for Roasted Sweet Potato Fries
If you don’t have a Jelly Roll Pan, I suggest you get one or two. Jelly Roll Pans are much handier than a cookie sheet (no lip) because you can use them for baking anything—cookies, cakes, Roasted Sweet Potato Fries, roasting a chicken, and much more. I have an old one my mom gave me when I set up my first apartment. Here’s a jelly roll pan by OXO, which always makes good products, that I like:
Roasted Sweet Potato Fries Recipe
Roasted Sweet Potato "Fries"
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary optional
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt optional
Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into 1/2-inch-thick strips.
- Put the strips in a bowl.
- Add the oil, rosemary and salt, and toss to coat.
Line a jelly roll pan or cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper (for easy clean up).
Place the coated sweet potatoes in a single layer on the pan and bake at 400F degrees for about 30-40 minutes, turning them over once midway through the cooking time.
- When done, the fries will be tender and slightly browned on the outside.
