Different Seasoning Choices for Sweet Potato Fries

For the basic recipe I just use a simple seasoning mix, but these can really be mixed up with some different blends.

Here are a few of my favourite mixes

Cajun Seasoning Mix

This is enough mix for a 2 person serving of fries (double up to serve more)

  • ½ teaspoon of paprika
  • ½teaspoon of cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon of onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon of oregano
  • ⅛ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • salt and black pepper

(I mix this all up using a mortar and pestle)

Garlic and Herb Seasoning Mix

This is enough mix for a 2 person serving of fries(double up to serve more)

  • 1 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • ½ tablespoon of Italian mixed herbs
  • sea salt

(I mix this all up using a mortar and pestle)

BBQ (Barbecue) Seasoning Mix

This is enough mix for a 2 person serving of fries(double up to serve more)

  • ½ tablespoon of tomato paste
  • ¼ teaspoon of onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of paprika
  • ⅛ teaspoon of chilli powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon of sugar or sweetener
  • ⅛ teaspoon of mustard powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon of oregano

Parmesan and Herb Seasoning Mix

This is enough mix for a 2 person serving of fries(double up to serve more)

  • parmesan or cheddar from your HEa
  • fresh chopped Italian parsley

(I mix this all up using a mortar and pestle) - add the cheese half way through cooking time.

Different Shaped Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Want to make crinkle-cut sweet potato fries? then thiscrinkle cutter, is perfect. You can even buy awaffle slicer-that lets you make your own waffle fries - how awesome!!

I love to cut them as crinkle-cut rounds as a healthier delicious alternative to nachos for chilli - awesome idea don't you think?

Tips for making PerfectOven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries

The biggest tip I can give is to use parchment paper. It will stop the sweet potato fries sticking to your tray and make them much easier to rotate to get the even browning.

There is nothing worse than oven-baked fries that look perfect, but then you go to remove or flip on the tray and they are all stuck an is then a mess. Plus the parchment protects your tray and keeps them nice and clean.

Can homemade Sweet Potato Fries be Frozen?

To get the best result when freezing these, I like to part baking with the coat, until they just start to go golden, then I place them on wax paper on a tray and freeze in a layer, once frozen you can pop them into a freezer bag. This just stops any from sticking together and makes it easier to remove the amount you want.

Then when ready to enjoy, just heat your oven and finish off the cooking. It is time-consuming, but if you make a large batch of them, then they are all prepped and half-cooked which does save some time when you want some sweet potato fries ready nice and quickly for dinner.
