Most of the time, I see sweet potato fries that are soggy, wimpy or mushy…ewww. It felt gross just typing that!
What we want is a fry that you bite into and it goes CRUNCH on the outside with a light fluffy inside. Perfect for dunking into a big ole bowl of ketchup or BBQ sauce!
I’m here today to tell you that crunchy sweet potato fries DO EXIST!!! They just take a bit of time and care! Use my tips below to make yourself a batch of the crispiest, crunchiest and tastiest fries you’ve ever eaten!
Here’s how to do it!!
Tip 1. Cut the fries as close to the same size as possible. Soak fries in a bowl of cold water for 30 minutes to one hour
Tip 2. Drain and dry the fries well. Toss with 2 tablespoons cornstarch per four sweet potatoes.
Tip 3. Use parchment paper on your sheet tray and don’t crowd the sheet pan. Leave lots of space or your fries will steam and not get crisp!
Tip 4. Flip the fries halfway through and switch the pans top to bottom in the oven.
And there you have it! Follow those tips with your next batch of sweet potato fries and glory in the crispy goodness!!
