Sweet Potato Pan Fries

Sweet Potato Pan Fries

These sweet potato pan fries are so…sweet! And they are pretty simple, too.

They only take a little bit of prep time. I had to add a little kick to the sweetness with cayenne pepper!

So for a little sweet jazz, take a listen to “Sweet Georgia Brown” sung by Ella Fitzgerald.



Sweet Potato Pan Fries


  • 1 sweet potato, peeled
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • Dash salt
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil


  1. Slice the sweet potato into matchstick slices.
  2. Put the matchstick slices in a sealable quart bag.
  3. Put onion powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and olive oil in the sealable bag with the matchstick sweet potatoes slices. Close the bag. Shake the bag to coat the matchstick slices.
  4. Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Put matchstick sweet potato slices in the frying pan.
  5. Brown to desired doneness. Turn repeatedly to cook them evenly.
