Sweet Potato Fries

Mark Bittman

  • Time 35 minutes

Craig Lee for The New York Times

These addictive seasoned “fries” from Mark Bittman are actually baked, but we promise you won’t miss the grease. The spice mix – garlic powder, paprika, salt and black pepper – can be used on regular potatoes as well (you’ll just need to increase the baking time a bit).


  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
