These sweet potatoes are sliced and then deep-fried to perfection. Season the sweet potato fries with salt and freshly ground black pepper, Cajun or Creole seasoning, or a blend of cinnamon with granulated sugar.

Serve the fries with pulled pork sandwiches or burgers, or serve them alongside grilled ham and cheese sandwiches. 

What You'll Need

  • 2 to 3 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 bottle vegetable oil for deep frying
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Optional: cinnamon or cinnamon-sugar

How to Make It

  1. Cut the sweet potatoes into 1/4 to 1/2- x 3-inch strips. Put the sweet potato strips in ice water until ready to fry.
  2. In a deep fryer or deep saucepan, heat vegetable oil to 370 F.
  3. Dry the sweet potato strips with paper towels and fry in batches in 370 F oil. When the fries are lightly browned and tender, transfer to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle with salt and pepper or salt and a little cinnamon or cinnamon-sugar.
