Gather your ingredients, preheat the oven to 450°F, and coat a baking sheet with oil.
Wash and cut the sweet potatoes about a half-inch wide by 3-4 inches long. Peeling is optional.
Add the cut sweet potatoes to a bowl with olive oil and the seasonings, then toss to coat.
Arrange the fries in a single layer on your prepared baking sheet. Pop them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through.
