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.
