This was my first attempt at sweet potato fries and I was hoping to convert my husband who has never been a fan. Well, I didn’t convert him and these were good but not great.
I was not able to get these fries crispy which is super important in my opinion. When I attempt these again I will try baking them at a higher temperature, maybe 450 degrees, for a shorter amount of time. Or maybe broil them for the last couple minutes. I think doubling the garlic and onion powder would also be beneficial.
