Drizzled in garlic butter and baked until crisp, these oven fries are a delicious accompaniment to almost every winter meal.

These fries are so easy to make and they make a great side to so many meals. Originally, I used to make these oven baked fries with a bit of sea salt and some olive or coconut oil. But around six months ago, I tried them with the a garlic butter and haven’t gone back to my original recipe since.
- 1 medium sweet potato (approximately 500 grams), washed
- 2 tablespoons organic butter plus extra for greasing. melted
- ½ tablespoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- Preheat oven to 220 (428 F) degrees Celsius and lightly grease a baking tray or sheet.
- Slice sweet potatoes into fries and place them in a bowl. Add melted butter, garlic powder, sea salt and pepper in a small bowl and mix well. Pour over the fries, mixing well to combine.
- Place the fries in a single layer on the baking tray (or sheet) and place in the oven and cook for 25-30 minutes or until browned, turning over at the 15 minute mark. If your fries don't crisp up after the 30 minute mark, try cooking them a bit longer or even placing them under the grill for a few minutes.
- Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
