How to Cook Sweet Potato Sticks in a Roasting Tray + Video

How to Cook Sweet Potato Sticks in a Roasting Tray - cookingwithkimberly.comThis recipe for Sweet Potato Sticks in a Roasting Tray is so delicious & different!

They are such a beautiful color, they’re healthy, sweet and a nice change from white potatoes. As well, baking is a healthier choice than deep frying.

I’m using a special roasting tray to bake these sweet potato sticks as it is an easy, handy item to use, but you could use an ordinary baking sheet, making sure to turn your potato sticks half way through cooking.

How to Cook Sweet Potato Sticks In A Roasting Tray:

This recipe will be a hit with your family as a side dish to a meal or as a snack at any time of the day.

As you will note, I don’t remove all the skin, only partially peeling the sweet potatoes and removing any unattractive bits. Vegetable skins are full of healthy goodness and I like to leave peelings on when possible, to get the most nutrients I can from my food.

When cutting the potatoes into sticks, I cut the potatoes in half, allowing me to cut the sticks more easily to whatever size and thickness I prefer – usually about the thickness of a regular french fry, or as you desire.
