Baked Sweet Potato Fries


Here's my twist to the the usual oven-roasted sweet potato fries, just lightly coat them with Panko breadcrumbs before baking. They look and tastes wicked, fries were nice and crunchy on the outside whilst the sweetness and moisture was nicely retained on the inside. I am pretty sure these Baked Sweet Potato Fries will be a sure winner with everyone. Try it.


Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Ingredients

1 Medium-Sized Sweet Potato, peeled
1 Egg, beaten
2 Tbsp All-Purpose Flour
½ tsp Cayenne Pepper
¼ tsp Sea Salt or to taste
1 Cup Panko Breadcrumbs

Baking Pan/Tray, lined with parchment paper, and spray lightly with canola oil.

Method

Preheat the oven to 425˚F.

Trim the peeled sweet potato in the shape of a rectangle. Cut into ¼ inch slices and then cut into ¼ inch fries.

In a medium sized plate, combine the flour, salt and pepper.

Toss the sweet potatoes with the flour; dip into the beaten egg, and coat with Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs). Place the sweet potatoes on a large baking tray. and lightly spray with canola oil. Bake the potatoes for about 17 to 18 minutes, or until light golden brown in color. Remove from the oven and serve warm.

  7. Oh these are special. Much fancier than the regular chip. Love the idea of chili aioli too. I imagine the spice and the sweet will go together very well. I've coated onion rings in panko and they came out great.

  9. Hi Angie, I made these during the week to go with buttermilk chicken. Delicious except the crumbs were not as all-over-crumbed as yours is in the photo. Was a nice change from plain potatoes.
