Crispy Sweet Potato Fries

I love sweet potato fries. Especially when they are paired with a good dip and are actually crispy. I’ve had trouble making my sweet potato fries crispy in the past, though. Until I found this method, that is!

It’s really simple, but a couple extra steps and it makes all the difference!

You’ll need:

1 large sweet potato

2 TBL olive oil

2 TBL cornstarch

Oil for frying

Sea salt to taste

 

That’s it, so let’s get started!

Peel your sweet potato and cut into 1/2 fries.

Then put 2 TBL cornstarch in a large bag along with the fries and shake, shake, shake till the fries are coated in the cornstarch.

Next, put 2 TBL of olive oil in a bowl or on a cookie sheet and coat the fries in the oil as well.

Preheat deep fryer or bring a large heavy pot of oil to 375 degrees. Once at temp, place fries in oil (carefully):

After 7 minutes, they should look kinda like this:

Quickly upon removing fries from oil, sprinkle with desired amount of sea salt and toss to coat evenly on a paper towel-lined platter.

All done! Now wasn’t that easy? These were the best, crispest sweet potato fries I’ve ever had and I hope you enjoy them as well. I served mine with french dip sammies. I’ll be making the french dips again and blogging that super easy recipe soon. They were so delcious!
