I hope you all are having a great long weekend! Here’s another one from our Sweet Potato video series – and a simple recipe for baked sweet potato fries. Above, are a few of my favorite screen grabs. (It was really fun to create the typography for these!).

Special thanks to Rightfrog Productions for the beautiful video work.

baked sweet potato fries
  • sweet potatoes
  • a generous drizzle of olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • ketchup or chipotle mayo for dipping
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil; spray with nonstick cooking spray. For crisper results, place a metal rack on each baking sheet.
  2. Cut sweet potatoes into matchsticks (about ¼-inch strips), or wedges.
  3. In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes, oil and salt. Toss to coat.
  4. Spread sweet potatoes in a single layer on racks or foil without crowding.
  5. Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  6. Eat immediately while they're still lightly crispy.

    I am absolutely loving this video! Especially the tossing – too cute!

      thanks! I know that’s my favorite part too – our video guy Christian is pretty amazing with those details!

  3. Loved your Sweet Potato video & recipe! I’m going to make them for dinner tonight. By the way, I know you live in Austin, TX and I see that the video production company you hired is out of NY. As a fellow blogger I’d love to start making videos too and was wondering if the company you use works in other states. I’m in California. Anyway, wanted to say hi and tell you I’m a big fan of, and subscriber to your blog.

      thanks! He’s actually located in Austin… I’m sure you can contact him through his site to find out his availability.

    Love the video! These would go great with some of my more casual meals. I will keep this in mind when my husband gets tired of baked potatoes/ sweet potatoes!

  5. Oh I love sweet potato fries! They’re so good and addictive <3 Mine always seem to burn a little though :s But I'll be trying your recipe and hopefully get better results 🙂 xx

    • jeanine from

      If you cut them a little thicker (or as wedges), I find they burn a little less easily.

    Beautiful video!
    I’m going to to try the rack in the baking sheet. My sweet potato fries don’t turn out crispy and this may be the answer! I’ll try it out this afternoon, because, I already have homemade burgers on then menu!

    • jeanine from

      They’re not as crispy as fried fries but they’re pretty tasty and the rack helps 🙂

  7. Can I just come live in your gorgeous kitchen? I love it!! Love the video, the tossing is my favorite : )

    I almost want to dance along to your sweet potatoes, this video makes me so happy. I don’t know if it’s the music, or the typography, or the recipe, but everything here is working so well.

  10. Loved this video, Jeanine. And what’s not the like about baked sweet potato fries. Fall is pretty much here in Switzerland so time to turn the oven back on!

  11. Which kind of olive oil do you uese?
    Lovely video 🙂

  12. super cute, Jeanine! That toss part of the video was my favorite part. And now i know what i’m making tonight 🙂

  13. Love the idea of putting the fries on a metal rack – that’s always the problem with my oven fries, they stick to the baking sheet. Thank you for sharing! I’m so making these for my potato-loving boyfriend 😉
