  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2.5 Tablespoons butter I use salted
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees, line a baking sheet with tin foil, and set aside.
  • Scrub your potatoes, peel them, and slice into thin strips.
  • In a large microwave safe bowl, melt the butter in the microwave.
  • Add in the garlic, salt, chili powder, and pepper to the melted butter. Whisk together.
  • Toss the sweet potatoes into the melted butter mixture then spread onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Spread them out so they're not overlapping, if possible.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven, use a spatula to flip the fries, then bake another 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle with more salt (if you think they'll need it), let rest on the pan for five minutes, then serve.
