Her garlic, salted, beer-baked french fries were such a hit, we asked The Edible Perspective to share her delicious brown ale-soaked sweet potato version of the recipe. Enjoy!


  • 3 lbs sweet potatoes
  • 1 bottle of brown ale
  • 3 Tbsp sunflower oil (or olive, etc..)
  • 2 large garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425°
  2. Scrub potatoes, and cut per instructions above. Leave the skins on.
  3. In a large bowl, soak the cut fries, in beer.
  4. Let soak for 15 minutes, tossing 1-2 times.
  5. Drain beer and toss with olive oil, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper, until well coated.
  6. Line a large baking sheet with parchment (optional, but nice for quick clean up!) and spread the fries, in a single layer on the pan. Use two pans, if needed. You don’t want them stacked.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes - 1 hour, depending on how done you like them, tossing 3 - 4 times. 
  8. Add more salt and pepper to your liking.
