Ingredients

  • 3

    large sweet potatoes or yams

  • 3

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 1

    tablespoon granulated sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon kosher salt

  • 1

    teaspoon chili powder

  • 1

    teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1

    teaspoon cumin

  • 1

    teaspoon dried oregano

Directions

Directions *Note: the purpose of the sugar is to help caramelize and brown the outside edges of the potatoes. Combined with the salt and other spices, you are left with a tender sweet potato fry infused with a sweet and smoky flavor. Preheating the baking sheets also helps the outer edges get a nice little crunch. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place two rimmed baking sheets in the oven while it preheats and while you prepare the potatoes (about 10 minutes). Peel the potatoes and slice the potatoes into about 1/4- to 1/2-inch strips or wedges. Try to keep most of the pieces the same size so they bake evenly. Place the potato strips/wedges in a ziploc bag or bowl. Toss the potatoes with the oil. Add the seasonings and mix until the potatoes are evenly coated. *Note: the purpose of the sugar is to help caramelize and brown the outside edges of the potatoes.
