Roasted + Spiced Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potato fries are the golden retriever puppies of the culinary world. I mean, who can resist a good sweet potato fry?! Here's my go-to recipe in hopes that you'll kick on your oven and bring more deliciousness into the world with these roasted + spiced sweet potato fries. They are delightfully crispy on the outside, luscious and soft on the inside, with a hint of spice and a touch of honey.

Roasted + Spiced Sweet Potato Fries

prep time: 10 minscook time: 30 minstotal time: 40 mins


2 pounds sweet potatoes 
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
Honey, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F and line two rimmed baking sheets with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Cut the potatoes into 1/2″ wedges, or to your desired thickness and length and put in a large bowl. Whisk the spices together in a small bowl with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, then pour over the sweet potatoes and toss to coat evenly. 
  3. Transfer the potatoes to your rimmed baking sheets. Spread the potatoes in a single layer (to make sure they get crispy, not soggy) and roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking for even browning. 
  4. Remove from the oven once the edges begin to brown and fries begin to crisp. Sprinkle with flakey sea salt (and honey, for a sweet touch) to serve.
