Sweet Potato Fries

From Biologie's Kitchen With Lovin'

These guys are called Fries but in reality they are tasty Baked goodness.

I heard a rumor about Baked Sweet Potato Fries and how yummy and amazing (not to mention healthy) they were but I was a bit skeptical about the whole mess.

Plain baked sweet potato fries might be great but not exciting enough for me so I needed something more! How about adding a bit of finely grated Parmesan cheese, fresh rosemary, and a dash of garlic powder?

After pulling a batch out of the oven my first bite was taken with a moment of doubt followed by a quick "taste bud check" to evaluate the finished product. My taste buds said:
"More please!"
The recipe is simple and healthy. It's a sweet-savory treat!

Rosemary Parmesan Sweet Potato Fries
Serves 5-6

  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • Fine sea salt, to taste (hint: a little goes a long way)
  • 2 T fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or to taste)
  • 1/2 Cup finely grated Parmesan cheese

1. Preheat oven to 400°F

2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil

3. Peel the sweet potatoes

4. Cut sweet potatoes into strips about 1/4 inch wide

5. Place cut strips into a large bowl and add oil, salt, rosemary, and garlic powder - toss to thoroughly coat

6. Set aside 2-3 T of grated Parmesan cheese in a small container to sprinkle on after they are baked

7. Add the remaining Parmesan to the bowl of sweet potatoes; toss thoroughly to coat

8. Spread out the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer

9. Bake 10-15 minutes, then turn them over and bake an additional 10-15 minutes

10. Fries are done when browned around the edges (or until desired crispiness)

11. Sprinkle reserved Parmesan cheese on hot baked fries

12. Serve immediately

I'm telling you ~ these are Yum!


  1. Oh dear! now I have to get up and go to the store. At least now I know what I'm having for supper tonight. I LOVE sweet potato fries but I've never tried them with rosemary and parmesan.Sounds heavenly!

  2. Yes, I love to try different spices each time I make them and these were delicious. How did yours turn out?

  3. Those look amazing! I'm going to have to try those - I've only ever had sweet potato chips, not fries. My current kick is butternut squash fries, and I think you'd probably like them!

  4. Oh wow, yes, butternut squash fries sound great! I never thought of making fries out of squash. :) I'll have to give them a try.

    Yes, typing up this recipe made me hungry too. :o)

  5. Yum! I will definitely have to try these...thanks!

  6. Yes, Buzzabee, please give them a try! I promise you won't be disappointed.
