Have your deep-fried sweet potato fries without all of the calories and mess! These crispy baked fries dipped in dill dip are the perfect side dish (or meal)!



  • 12 large sweet potatoes
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch
  • 23 tbsp oil (canola, grapeseed or olive)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Dill Dip

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise 
  • 1/2 cup sourcream
  • 1 tsp dried dill 
  • 1 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper, or spray with non-stick spray.* Use the roast setting on the oven if available. 
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes, and cut them into fry shapes, about 1/4″ thick each. Place the potatoes into a large Ziploc bag, add the cornstarch and shake the bag well until all of the fries have a thin coating of cornstarch. 
  3. Add the oil, garlic powder, paprika and sea salt to the bag, and shake vigorously. Place the fries in a single layer on the baking sheets and place in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove the pans, and using a metal spatula, flip the fries in sections. Place back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes. You’ll know the fries are done when they’re slightly pillowy looking and firm.* No floppy fries! 
  4. While the fries are baking, prepare the dill dip by combining all of the dip ingredients in a small bowl, and mixing together. Store in the fridge until the fries are ready.
  5. Serve the fries alongside a small bowl of dip. Enjoy immediately!

Leftover fries can be stored in the fridge, and heated up in the oven at 275 for 10-15 minutes.


  1. Do not use foil or an ungreased sheet. Parchment paper works best, but I’ve also had success with a silicone baking mat.
  2. One tip to crisp up the fries: Once they’re cooked, shut off the oven and leave the fries inside for 10-15 minutes. The low heat in the oven will crisp them up nicely.
