These quick & easy yam fries are a great alternative to french fries {a big weakness of mine!} & are so easy to make! I served them with turkey burgers...Yum!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 -2 large yam
  • grapeseed oil
  • salt & seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Just wash your yams well & cut them into pieces of your desired size, I like them a bit thicker.
  3. Toss them in 1 tlbs. oil {you can use others but grapeseed oil is best since it doesn't become toxic once it reaches certain temps like oilve oil may}.
  4. Lay them out on a cookie sheet, meaty part facing down & season with kosher salt or I used Mrs. Dash since it's salt-less. Bake for 20 mins or until the thickest pieces are tender!

Lately, all I see is grapeseed oil this and grapeseed oil that. I wonder where I've been. Nice and healthy. Made for P-A-R-T-Y Recipe Tag.

My children love yam fries as well. I found 375 too low a temperature though, they were becoming mushy instead of crispy and "fry" like. So I ended up bumping up to 425 to try and brown the oustides. I agree, grapeseed oil is the way to go with these. Thanks!

This was so good and my kids loved it (they dip theirs in light ranch). Thanks for sharing it!
