How to Make Sweet Potato Fries

From bars and restaurants to the freezer section of your grocery store, you can find sweet potato fries in a variety of forms: loaded up with cheese, waffled or classic straight-cut with a sprinkle of salt. Sweet potato fries offer a perfect combination of savory and sweet, with a crispy outside and tender inside. They pair well with burgers, pulled pork sandwiches and veggie sandwiches. They are delicious on their own. That’s why learning how to make sweet potato fries at home is a rewarding experience, and with these tips, you’ll want to make them regularly. We recommend baked sweet potato fries at home for how easy they are to make. Follow these tips for making sweet potato fries—you won’t believe how simple it is!

Neutral cooking oil
Seasoning, like salt, pepper, cayenne powder, or other spices—you can even go sweet with a little cinnamon!

Sheet pan


  • 1. Preheat oven to 425°F

3 (about 1.5 lbs.) sweet potatoes
¼ cup KRAFT Italian Dressing
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
Cooking spray
Chef’s knife
