Baked Honey Lemon Sweet Potato Fries
These baked honey lemon sweet potato fries are an easy to prepare side dish or appetizer. These fries are crispy, savory, with just the right amount of spice!
Servings 2 servings
- 2 medium sweet potatoes around 400-500 grams
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- scant 1 tbsp honey
- scant 1/2 tbsp lemon juice or to taste
- 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp black peppercorns freshly ground
- 1/4 tsp oregano
Heat the oven to 450.
Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into sticks around 1/4 wide and 3-4 inches long. Place them in a bowl and toss with the oil and mix. Then add honey, lemon juice, salt, and spices.
Spread them out evenly on a parchment or aluminum foil-lined (coat with oil if you use aluminum) baking sheet. Make sure not to overcrowd the fries.
Bake until brown and crisp on the bottom, about 15 minutes, then use tongs to turn them over. I usually just mix them up a bit and flatten them out again.
Then bake them again, about 12-13 minutes, until fully cooked and crisp. Keep an eye toward the end because they tend to burn quickly because of the naturally occurring sugars. Serve immediately. The fries begin to lose crisp as they cool.
