Sweet Potato Fries Why Make This? Are you missing sweet potato fries from your favorite boba tea shop? You can make your own version at home in the oven!

You can toss them with taco seasoning, italian, cajun, or everything but the bagel. You can even use pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon with brown sugar to make them sweet.
