Smoked Maple Sriracha Sweet Potato Fries

  • 3-4 large large sweet potatoes
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt

Preheat the oven to 450°s F, preheating your baking sheet inside the oven.

Wash and cut your sweet potatoes into fries, trimming as needed; there is no need to peel them unless you really don't like fries with a crispy peel. Place the cut and raw sweet potato fries in a large bowl, add the olive oil, smoked paprika, sriracha sauce, maple syrup, and salt; toss to coat.

Spread the oiled and seasoned fries on the preheated baking sheet and bake for 15- 20 minutes or until slightly crisp and cooked through (a fork can easily pierce).

If they are still not crisp enough on top for your liking, but they're browned on the bottom and baked through, then turn the oven up to broil and cook for about 2 more minutes, keeping a close eye on them to ensure that they don't burn. Serve hot.
