Sweet Potato Steak Fries

I eat sweet potato fries all the time.  Sweet potatoes are one of those veggies that I didn’t touch as a child.  I wouldn’t even eat them in casserole form topped with marshmallow, syrup & nuts.  Nope.  I was only interested in your “normal” mashed potatoes as a child.  I didn’t even really try, or remember trying, sweet potatoes until just a few years back.  Now, I eat them several times a week.  My new favorite way is to eat them in steak fry form.  I used to make them in rounds, more like thicker chips, as you can see here.  Friday night, I tried the new, better way and love them!!


These are so easy to make, it isn’t even funny.  I sliced a single sweet potato into steak fry shapes first.  Then, I sprayed with Pam and seasoned to my liking (I just used sea salt, pepper & cinnamon).  I tossed into the oven at about 375 – 400 and let them go.  I checked on them every 10 minutes or so and flipped about half way through and then towards the end again to brown up on all sides.  They ROCKED!! 

I served them along side of an open-faced fried egg sandwich.  I toasted 2 slices of Kinnikinnick’s Many Wonder Multi-Grain Bread  and then topped with fresh baby spinach, fried eggs and fresh chopped basil.  So good and went perfectly with the sweet potato steak fries!! 

If you like sweet potatoes, give these fries a try!

  1. Yum, that looks so great! We usually cut our sweet potato fries into smaller stick shapes, but these steak fry shapes look easier, tastier, and prettier! I will definitely be trying that next time.

  4. Mmm….I love sweet potato fries! It’s funny, even as a kid I loved sweet potatoes and never really liked regular potatoes that much. I think I just pretended to like them because everyone else in my family did.
