Baked Sweet Potato French Fries with Parmesan & Cilantro……Meow

Post image for Baked Sweet Potato French Fries with Parmesan & Cilantro……Meow

My son insists he is a cat. Our cats do not get wet food for lunch but are allowed to snack on dry food and water all day.

Therefore, my son stated that he no longer eats lunch.

He changed his mind after I dropped a plate of these babies on the table and told him that once he starts eating lunch, I will make a bigger batch.

Needless to say, I did not get to eat more than one.

 Wondering what the dipping sauce is in the photos? It is Skinny Sriracha Sour Cream Dip!

Meow!

That first photo is making me drool and want to dive right in to a plate of these.

So cute, love kids’ imaginations, and as for these sweet potato fries, I think my kids would love these!

Evan, grab your goggles and dive in because I will make you the largest batch eva!

Those fries look too good to pass up! I imagine they would be gobbled up before they made it to the table at my house!

I think I used too much olive oil because the potatoes came out too mushy for my liking. Sad day

Jennifer September 18, 2012 at 6:26 pm

Oh boo!!! no good at all. So sorry……were the FF too thin maybe?

Yum! I have begun to love sweet potatoes about 4 months ago – mainly steam them but these look great – will totally be making these – thanks

Stephanie September 20, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Apparently, if you toss the sweet potatoes in corn statch before you bake them, they won’t get mushy! :0)

Jennifer September 20, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Thanks for the tip – I have not has mushy ones BUT now I will know what to do Stephanie.

How did you get your sweet potatoes to crisp up on the outside? Mine were just soft and limp. I’d love to know the secret!

Jennifer September 29, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Angela, did you put them on a cooling rack when you baked them?

Allen September 29, 2012 at 6:24 pm

Yum-O! I love baked french fry sweet potatoes – yours are the perfect shape – will try my mandolin for the next batch.

Simple and delicious recipes

What’s the dip?

Jennifer October 15, 2012 at 7:54 am

Hi Amanda – I went back and inserted the link to the skinny Sriracha dip. Thank you for the reminder!

Laurel October 24, 2012 at 7:03 pm

These were delicious! My family loved them. I don’t know what Sriracha is, and looked for it in the spice area and also in the Asian and Hispanic food isle but couldn’t find it. Help?

Jennifer November 15, 2012 at 11:07 am

Do you have an Asian market nearby Laurel? You can also order it from Amazon.

Beautiful Blog!

Laurel,
it is a spicy Asian ketchup that can be found in the Asian section of Walmart. Look for the clear, round, plastic bottles with bright red sriracha. I believe the cap is a green pointy twist cap. I am going to have to try the corn starch trick because my fries always come out mushy.

Marissa August 28, 2013 at 7:53 pm

Hi Jennifer,
Do you reccommend baking these on cooling racks in the oven to maintain crispness? Or cooling them on racks once baked? I have the issue of them being a little mushy, wasn’t sure what to try! Thx!

Jennifer August 29, 2013 at 12:54 pm

Hi Marissa – I find that baking them on cooling racks help make them crisp all around.

Catherine October 19, 2013 at 7:06 pm

These look fantastic! I’ll definitely be trying them soon. Thanks for sharing!

Kathleen October 30, 2013 at 2:44 pm

I’m so impressed by your cutting skills. I have yet to master the french-fry cutting technique…

Akira December 6, 2013 at 2:20 pm

Excellent recipe… I sprinkle them with corn starch before getting in the oven and after 25 minutes they were perfect done and crispy!, the kids will love them… Delicious… Thank you :)
