Servings 6 -8 servings


  • 2 pounds California sweetpotatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Maldon salt
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves minced


  • Preheat an oven to 450°F
  • Rinse and dry the sweet potatoes. Cut the unpeeled potatoes lengthwise into slices 1/2 inch (12 mm) thick, and then cut each slice into batons about 1/4 inch (6 mm) wide and 3 inches (7.5 cm) long.
  • Place the potatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and toss to coat. Spread the potatoes out evenly. Roast, stirring with a spatula halfway through, until the potatoes are tender and browned on the edges, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the cheese, parsley and garlic. Add the warm fries and stir gently to coat. Season with salt and serve immediately.

  6. My Dream Thanksgiving Meal | think fruitful

    […] Because it’s Thanksgiving (and what better excuse to eat extra carbs), I would include two kinds of potatoes on my dream Thanksgiving menu. My mom’s creamy mashed potatoes (with all of the glorious sour cream, half and half and a golden pat of butter on top), along with some sort of sweet potatoes. I feel like I could either go with the standard sweet potato casserole topped with mini marshmallows or something new like these garlic herb sweet potato fries. […]
