How to Make Perfect, Crispy Oven-Fried Sweet Potato Fries (Page 5)

4. Don’t Overcrowd Your Baking Sheet

The secret to crispy instead of soggy sweet potato fries is to spread them out in an even layer with enough room so that they don’t touch. This is especially important if you’re making a big batch of fries. Instead of just piling more onto one baking pan, spread them out over two baking pans or cook them in batches. If they’re all crammed onto one pan, they’ll steam instead of bake and you’ll end up with soggy fries.
