Crispy, Baked Sweet-Potato Wedges

Filed Under: Recipes at 1:42 pm | By: Madeline Reiss

Get all the crispy deliciousness of sweet potato fries without the deep frier! This recipe will get you thick, lightly crisped, oven-baked sweet potato wedges that make the perfect snack or side dish.

Ingredients
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled (or unpeeled, if you like skin) and cut into wedges
2 1/2 tablespoons avocado oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees (F). Line a large baking sheet with tinfoil (shiny side up); place baking rack onto a prepared baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes (if preferred) and cut off the pointy ends. Slice the sweet potatoes in half (lengthwise), then cut each piece into wedges.
  3. Place the sweet potato wedges in a large bowl, then add the avocado oil, salt, sugar, seasoning, and black pepper. Mix well, making sure each wedge is coated with oil and spices.
  4. Arrange the sweet potato wedges in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, then turn on the broiler and bake for another 3-5 minutes, or until they’re well browned and crispy. Keep an eye here – it’s easy to burn when the broiler is on!
  5. Cool wedges on a pan for 5 minutes, then serve at once!
