Sweet potato fries are my ultimate weakness, but I’ve never bothered to make them at home. Mainly because I didn’t want to deal with a hot pot of oil on the stovetop, and the baked route can never yield that perfectly crisp texture. But sure enough, I finally took the plunge and gave it a go, trying my best to perfect this recipe in the oven. And with the help of Wolf‘s dual convection oven, you’ll be able to create the most amazingly crisp fries made right in the ease of your own kitchen!

With Wolf’s dual convection oven, you’ll have the best combination of heat and airflow, yielding the best results possible. Two fans and four heating elements produce more uniform heating than even a single convection fan, meaning there are no hot and cool spots that you might see with other ovens. Wolf’s oven achieves consistent results – even without rotating trays, every fry is perfect. Who doesn’t want better consistency for their food? And I love it when the guesswork is taken out so I can turn the oven on, sit back and wait.

So with Wolf, you’ll be able to create the best oven-baked sweet potato fries ever, tossed in fresh garlic and Parmesan goodness. You can certainly add more or less toppings to taste, although I personally think more is better!

This is surely restaurant-style quality, but without all that heavy oil and grease. Plus, since it’s made a little bit healthier, that just means we can have two servings instead of one, right?
