Total Cost: $2.81 recipe / $0.70 serving
Servings: 4


  • 2 lbs 3 medium sweet potatoes $2.55
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil $0.21
  • to taste Tony Chachere’s $0.05


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Peel the sweet potatoes, wash them with cool water then cut into 1/2 inch thick “stix.” Cut them as evenly as possible so they cook at an even rate.
  • Place the stix in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning. Use your hands to mix the ingredients until the sweet potato stix are evenly covered with oil and seasoning.
  • Line a baking sheet (or two) with either parchment paper or foil. Spread the stix out on the baking sheet(s) so they are in a single layer. I had to use two sheets to make sure they were in one layer. Bake for about 45 minutes or until they are golden brown on the edges. Stir/flip the stix half way through so the under sides get exposed to the hot dry air.
  • Add more seasoning, if necessary, after cooking.
