Cajun Sweet Potato Fries

baked cajun sweet potato fries

What’s better than sweet potato fries? Well, Cajun sweet potato fries, of course.

My friend, Cara, and I are slightly obsessed with sweet potato fries, and well, fries in general. Recently we dined with a group of friends in a quaint patio restaurant at a winery in Temecula, where duck fat fries were the specialty. Naturally we wanted to sample all of the flavors on the menu…there were 7 flavors. It was only slightly embarrassing when the manager came out to take our picture. Apparently we were the first people in history to order all the flavors at once!

As much as I love eating real fries on cheat days, these Cajun baked sweet potato fries taste just as good as the greasy ones. And with these ones you get to avoid the fry-induced bellyache.

    It sounds great, but will they be crispy? We’ve never been able to make crispy sweet potato fries, crispy kale chips, or crispy zucchini chips.

      Hi Tim!

      If you’re concerned about your fries coming out crispy, leaving them in the oven a little bit longer should do the trick.

      Let me know how it turns out! 🙂
