Sweet Potato Fries

Corporate chef, Chris Waltman of Forbes Hever & Wallace developed this oven-baked recipe as an alternative to fried sweet potato fries. Using the Amana® Commercial AXP Speed oven, he was able to bake these tasty fries to perfection in the same amount of time as a traditional fryer, and 15-20 times faster than a traditional convection oven.

Add some wiggle room to your New Year’s resolution with these delicious baked—not fried, sweet potato fries. Indulge in the crispy exterior and soft, creamy interior of these fries. Baked from raw in just 3 minutes using the Amana® Commercial AXP Speed oven, this energy-efficient method of cooking eliminates food waste, while ensuring timely service.
