Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato Fries | ChopChop


These are sweet, crisp-edged, and delicious. Feel free to ignore our wedge-cutting instructions. You can cut the sweet potato however you like: into rounds, sticks, or even cubes. The trick is making them all the same thickness so that they’re done cooking at the same time—and making them thin enough that they cook through without burning.

Hands-on time: 10 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes
Makes: 4 Servings

Kitchen Gear: 

Sharp knife (adult needed)
Cutting board
Large bowl
Measuring spoon
Large rimmed baking sheet
Pot holders


large sweet potatoes, scrubbed clean
1 tablespoon
olive oil
1⁄2 teaspoon
kosher salt


  1. Turn the oven on and set the heat to 425 degrees.
  2. Cutting the sweet potatoes is a job for an adult: cut each sweet potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half in half again, and then each quarter in half once again once more. You will end up with 8 wedges from each potato.
  3. Put the sweet potatoes, oil, and salt in the bowl and use your clean hands to mix well.
  4. Dump everything onto the baking sheet, spread the potatoes out evenly, and bake until golden and tender, about 35 minutes. Serve right away.
