How to make Baked Sweet Potato Wedges
I am always looking for easy and healthy side dish recipes that my kids will eat. These Baked Sweet Potato Wedges make a perfect side dish to almost any meal.
I started by peeling the sweet potatoes. You could leave the skins on, but the seasoning coats the potato wedges better if they are peeled.
After I peeled the sweet potatoes, I cut them into wedges and placed them in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag.
Next, I drizzled a few tablespoons of olive oil over the potatoes, zipped the bag closed and shook it until all the wedges were coated in olive oil.
I could easily eat sweet potatoes plain or with a little salt and pepper, but my husband likes things to have a little more flavor!
This delicious blend of spices gave the baked potato wedges the just the right amount of flavor! You might think that mixing cinnamon with more savory spices sounds strange, but I promise it tastes great!
After mixing all of the seasoning together, I poured it right into the bag with the potato wedges, zipped it up and shook it like crazy until the sweet potatoes were easily coated.
You’ve probably notice by now that we love making side dishes using sheet pans, like our Maple Roasted Butternut Squash, Italian Roasted Vegetable Medley or our Parmesan Lemon Asparagus. Using a sheet pan helps your baked sweet potato wedges cook evenly.
Spread your seasoned sweet potatoes in an even layer onto a baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Be sure they aren’t stacked on top of each other or they will stick together and won’t crisp up as well.
The outside of those wedges will get nice and crisp, but be sure to keep an eye on them so they don’t burn! Serve your baked sweet potato wedges with ketchup, ranch, barbecue sauce or just eat them plain. They are that good!
