The BEST Way To Reheat Sweet Potato Fries

Have a load of sweet potato fries that you didn’t manage to finish?
Well, the good news is that you can save them for later and reheat them to (nearly) their original texture.
I have experimented with several different sweet potato fry reheating methods, to find out what delivers the crunchiest outside and the softest, fluffiest inside.

  • 1 portion sweet potato fries baked or fried
  • 1 spritz oil


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Lightly spritz your fries with oil and shake them about so all the fries are covered. You can also add extra seasoning at this point if you want to.
  • Spread your sweet potato fries out on a parchment-paper lined baking tray, avoiding any overlapping.
  • Heat the fries in the oven for 2-3 minutes. Then take the tray out and shake it to flip the fries over.
  • Heat the fries for another 2-3 minutes or until they’re piping hot.


If your fries are frozen, you can follow the same method, but you’ll have to increase the reheating time to around 10-15 minutes. The thickness of your fries will also affect the reheating time. Thicker fries will need longer.
The oil’s primary purpose is to aid in the crisping up of the skin of the sweet potato fry.
If you want to skip the oil, that’s totally fine. Just be prepared for the fries to be slightly less crispy, especially if they were fried originally.
You can use a conventional oven or a toaster oven for this. Toaster ovens generally work best because they’re smaller and the heat can circulate more efficiently, which is essential for crisping the fries up.
