Sweet Potato Fries


  • Sweet potatoes
  • Oil (enough to cover the bottom of the pan and be 1.5cm thick)
  • Heavy based saucepan
  • Rosemary
  • Salt
  • Wooden spoon
  • Tea towel
  • Bowl
  • Microwave
  • Stove
What To Do
  1. Put oil in saucepan on high heat, making sure the oil covers the bottom of the pan and deep enough to cover the chips
  2. Put a pinch of salt and a pinch of rosemary into the oil and stir with a wooden spoon
  3. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into 1cm thick “chips”
  4. Place sweet potato in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute
  5. When the oil is hot (check by placing a small chip into the oil, if the oil is hot enough it will bubble and sizzle) place the chips in a single layer in the pan (it may take more than one go to get all the chips done
  6. The chips are done when the outside is golden (this will take about 10 minutes)
  7. Remove the chips from the oil (DO NOT USE PLASTIC the oil will melt it) and place in a bowl lined with paper towel.
  8. Sprinkle with salt and serve with main dish
Note: If you are using a non-stick pan don’t use metal as this will scrap the non-stick lining
