How to make it

  • Peel sweet potatoes and cut into uniform pieces about the size of medium fries (not thick steak fries or shoestrings). Let soak in a bowl of water for 1-4 hours (not mandatory but recommended).
  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • Put about 1 tsp of cornstarch in a plastic bag and add pieces equalling about 1 potato. Twist the top of the bag so it forms a sort of balloon and shake around to distribute cornstarch. The potato pieces should be lightly dusted with cornstarch all over. Add more if needed.
  • Place dusted potato pieces onto a non-stick baking sheet in one layer, leaving a bit of room between. Repeat with remaining sweet potato.
  • Drizzle olive oil over potatoes - starting with about 1 tbsp. Season as desired. Use your hands to distribute oil & make sure they're well coated. Add more oil as needed.
  • Rearrange on baking sheet, making sure to leave room between each one. The more space they have the crispier they'll get.
  • Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until desired crispness is reached.
  • These are delicious served with a variety of dipping sauces, from something as simple as honey to a Sriracha mayo or Horseradish Dipping Sauce.

    I made these last night! (not your recipe but just how I usually make them). Did the cornstarch really make a big difference as far as making them more crispy?
