Crispy and delicious baked “everything” sweet potato fries using the one and only flavorful “everything but the bagel seasoning”
Something I could eat literally everyday and never get sick of.. FRIES. Give me all the fries. Regular, sweet potato, curly, crinkle cut, loaded, shoestring, dipped in ketchup. I love them all. I always have.
My parents always remind me that when I was little I got my tonsils out. I was sent home and the doctors told my parents I would probably be in a ton of pain and couldn’t have any salty foods. Well, on the way home I was crying saying I wanted French fries from McDonald’s. Sometimes I’m so surprised by the stories my parents tell me about myself from when I was a little kid, but this not this one. I believe it.
I actually make sweet potato fries in my air fryer (click here for my air fryer) 4-5x a week. They make the perfect little side for dinner.
Whether, I’m air frying or baking my fries – I always peel them, cut them into fry shape, and then soak them in a bowl of cold water for 30 minutes to an hour. This removes excess potato starch and helps the achieve that extra crispy texture. Who doesn’t want that? Trust me, it’s worth waiting the extra time. Also, the longer the better.. so if you have time let them soak for hours.
So, as much as I love to make my fries in the air fryer. I wanted this recipe to be oven baked. First of all, I made these in my air fryer before and you lose way too much of the everything seasoning in the basket. At least with my air fryer. Also, I wanted to share a fry recipe for those of you who don’t have or want an air fryer. I’m all about accommodating everyone when it comes to my recipes 🙂
Some of my other fry recipes:
I obviously used sweet potatoes for this recipe. But, you could also use russet potatoes OR Japanese sweet potatoes. If you haven’t already tried Japanese sweet potatoes, I recommend it! I absolutely love them. Trader Joe’s sells a big bag for really cheap. I also find them At Whole Foods. Potatoes can do no wrong, in my opinion.
This easy little snack or side is perfect for game day, party appetizers, or a just because you feel like having some deliciously seasoned fries. I love mine dipped in Sir Kensington’s chipotle mayo or buffalo ranch.Print
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into thin fries
1 tbsp “everything but the bagel seasoning”
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
desired dipping sauces (ketchup, buffalo ranch, chipotle mayo)
Soak your cut fries in a bowl with cold water for at least 30 minutes, but the longer the better!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Drain fries and add to a bowl and mix with olive oil and everything seasoning.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spread fries across the baking sheet, giving them some space in between to crisp up.
If desired sprinkle a bit more everything seasoning on top.
Bake for 20 minutes, flip and bake for another 15 minutes or until they’re crispy enough for your liking!
