I have been making homemade baked sweet potato fries for a long time.  I love controlling the seasonings and knowing that they are baked instead of deep fried. 

But, no one wants soggy fries.  Not appealing at all.  Over the years I have discovered some tips and tricks to help achieve the crispiest oven-baked sweet potato fries.  I have ten tips to share with you in this post.  Buckle up and get ready to learn all about oven-baked crispy sweet potato fries!

Tip #1: Cut them thin and even. 

I opt for 1/4 inch thick spears.  Any of the spears that are different should go on a different baking sheet so they can cook at a different length.  Always cut the pointy tips off the sweet potato spears.  The pointy tips will burn so be sure to square-off your edges.  See below for an example of the tips starting to burn because they were not cut properly.
