Baked Yam Fries

Delicious yam fries that are easy and quick to make and satisfy both a salty and sweet craving.



  1. Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
  2. Peel yams and cut into large chunky french fry pieces.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and spread out onto baking sheet.
  4. Sprinkle with paprika and salt (or just use seasoning salt).
  5. Bake for 15 minutes until lightly brown on the bottom. Turn and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until soft in the middle and crisp on the outside.
  6. Serve in place of regular potato dishes.
  7. Note: also really good as an appetizer with a yogurt-based dipping sauce!

These are amazingly sinful tasting but they're great for you.

Better than real fries but still to many carbs.
I love sweet potato fries, okay for you on a diet, just omit olive oil, try spraying lightly with cooking spray....good job

Clever idea, not sure how yams are really that different from potatoes.

Excellent. Recently I was looking for a Yam Fries recipe & couldn't find one. I cut them too thin & kind of burnt. Still edible but next time they will be so much better. Thanks!

Sounds yummy, but sweet potatoes are not allowed on South Beach, phase 1..

Agreed, I love these sweet potatoe fries- I add a dash of cajun seasoning. But only for Phase 2 or 3, not phase 1.
