Easy Pan Fried Sweet Potatoes Recipe
These pan-fried sweet potatoes are so easy to make and taste amazing! Everyone will love these browned tender sweet potato slices!
There are so many way to make sweet potatoes &ndash you can boil them, bake them, mash them and even cook sweet potatoes in a microwave. Check out my growing sweet potato recipes collection for more inspiration! However, for some reason, when thinking of ways to make sweet potatoes, simple pan-frying method often gets overlooked. If you haven&rsquot tried cooking sweet potato slices on a frying pan, you are in for a treat!
Just like my simple sauteed boneless skinless chicken thighs, good old-fashioned pan-frying in a little oil always produces great results!
To make sauteed sweet potatoes, just heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large non-stick frying pan, add sliced sweet potatoes and cook on medium-high heat, stirring every 2 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are nicely browned and fully cooked and tender. At the end, sprinkle with chili powder or your favorite seasonings. So yummy!
These pan-fried sweet potatoes are amazing for breakfast with eggs! Here&rsquos a scrumptious breakfast idea for you: fried sweet potatoes, scrambled eggs and sliced avocado. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
Just like with any type of sauteing, one important thing to remember is to not crowd the frying pan. Use one sliced sweet potato per large 12-inch non-stick frying pan. If you want to cook more sweet potatoes, you will have to cook them in batches or use two frying pans over two burners at the same time.
If you have a large family and want to pan-fry a lot of things at once, consider getting an electric griddle. Another awesome thing I love about my griddle is that it maintains a constant temperature so food never burns on it!
If you like these pan-fried sweet potatoes, you will also love these easy recipes:
- 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1x3-inch wedges
- 3 tablespoons soybean oil (often labeled "vegetable oil")
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon paprika
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Position rack in upper third of oven and preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray.
Place sweet potatoes and soybean oil in large bowl, toss lightly. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika.
Arrange potatoes in a single layer on prepared baking sheet, being sure not to overcrowd.
Bake until tender and golden brown, turning occasionally. Cooking time is 18 to 24 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before serving.

Salt 'n' Pepper Sweet Potato Fries
Sweet potato fries beat french fries any day. The sweet crispy fries have a perfectly tender inside that's insanely addicting. These fries have a few tricks up their sleeves to get extra-crispy in the oven with no frying in sight!
It sounds a little strange to soak potatoes when you want to ensure they get crispy, but it helps! Soaking your cut potatoes in cold water for just 30 minutes will get rid of excess starch (that's what makes them creamy) and help them crisp up in the oven. Just be sure to drain and pat dry extremely well before roasting.
Cornstarch is our true secret weapon here. A little cornstarch will coat the fries and soak up any last moisture, creating a slight crust on the outside that frying would normally give. It's a miracle ingredient. Make sure when coating that you toss well and make sure all the fries are evenly coated.
Use high heat
A high oven temp will help sear that outside and give you a perfectly crispy outer edge with a creamy soft inside, the ideal fry. Make sure to toss halfway through baking so that more edges get in direct contact with the hot pan!
The biggest mistake people make when making fries (or roasting anything, really) is overcrowding. The fries will steam instead of crisp and no one wants a limp fry. Be sure to spread your fries between 2 pans, giving the potatoes plenty of room to cook. It's the best thing you can do for your fries and the most helpful trick to remember when cooking.
We Taste-Tested 6 Brands of Sweet Potato Fries and the Winner Was Unanimous
Grilling season is upon us once again, and what better way to complement a juicy, hot-off-the-grill burger than with a crispy plate of fries (sweet potato fries, in this scenario).
Sweet potato fries are a controversial snack among our editorial team. Some (like myself) would take them over regular fries any day of the week, while others think they are no better than deep-fried baby carrots. Therefore, the contending brands in this taste-test had a lot of work to do. Not only did they have to outshine the other fries, but they had to dramatically sway the taste buds of a few fairly resistant judges.
Now, let’s meet the contestants. Alexia brand can be found is almost any grocery store, health-focused or not, and seem to have a pretty good hold on the sweet fry market. Because they offer 6 fry styles to choose from, we included two different fry shapes from their line in our taste test. The other brands can be found at Target, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and Publix.
If sweet potato fries are your thing, this review is for you. Of course, if you haven’t yet been enlightened to the delightfully crisp balance of sweet and salty, we still invite you along for the ride.

Perfect Crispy Sweet Potato Fries
There&rsquos no denying that fries are universally accepted comfort food. They are delicious and the fact that you&rsquore almost expected to eat them with your fingers is very appealing to me. What can I say, I love finger food and dips so this is the perfect snack for me. These are incredibly easily made, can be changed to suit your taste and far less fatty than their deep-fried counterpart. If you never tried to bake your fries in the oven then you should definitely give these crispy sweet potato fries a chance.
There was a time when I thought I had to abandon my favourite snacking combination of fries and mayonnaise. That was simply due to the fact that mayonnaise contains eggs. Yes, I am one of those people. I eat my fries with mayonnaise. They can be great with ketchup but that is not my first choice. Luckily I managed to find several ways to make mayonnaise egg free but the avocado version is by far the tastiest. If you for some reason prefer your sweet potato fries with ketchup then you can try out this Hot & Spicy Home Made Ketchup. It has a slight kick to it due to the chillies but let&rsquos get back to sweet potato fries!
Getting the perfect crispy sweet potato fries can be tricky but it is not impossible. It took me a while to find a fool proof way that works each single time and it starts with soaking the raw potato fries in ice cold water. Doing this will draw the excess starch out, which will help them to crisp up. I let them soak in the cold water for about 45 &ndash 60 minutes. It highly depends on how patient I am but from experience, it pays off to wait a whole hour.
Once they are done soaking discard the water, give them a very quick rinse with cold water and pat them dry with a kitchen towel. Place them in a bowl and add 2 tsp of corn starch. Gently mix them until they are evenly covered. Place them on a baking tray that is lined with baking paper and make sure they touch each other as little as possible. Scatter the seasoning over them and drizzle with the olive oil. Do NOT add any salt at this stage. If you do that it will turn the fries soggy. Add the salt after they are baked, just before you eat them.
Bake them in a preheated, fan assisted oven for about 30-45 minutes at 200°C (390°F). The duration depends on how thickly you cut your fries. There are two little tricks that will help you get the perfect sweet potato fries. Once the sweet potatoes started cooking and the oil is bubbling, open the oven door just a tiny bit. Enough to let all the steam out that gathered in the oven at this point and close it quickly again. It should suffice to just open it for a few seconds, do not overdo it or the temperature will drop too much. The second trick is to turn the oven off once your fries are done and let them sit in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.
These crispy sweet potato fries are far less fatty and healthier than their deep-fried &ldquowhite&rdquo cousin. You can choose whatever seasoning you like for these I just happen to love my food hot and spicy but you might as well season them with just pepper and salt or add rosemary and garlic. Just keep in mind to never add salt until after they are cooked, this is especially important if you use ready-made seasoning mixes. If they contain salt then bake the fries with just the oil and add the seasoning mix afterwards. In any case, you will end up with a delicious heap of perfect crispy sweet potato fries if you follow these steps.
I love sweet potato fries with anything. They are a wonderful comfort food for cold winter nights, served alongside any “main”. Whatever I have with them (and usually I have sausages) I always serve them with a portion of soured cream! They also work really nicely alongside my Diet Coke Gammon!
If you are having them as part of a Mexican dish, or you just want to add a bit of zest to your sour cream, zest a lime and mix the lime zest into your sour cream before serving.
Also a big fan of sweet potatoes but want to mix it up? Try these other great recipes.
