Sweet Potato Wedges

I enjoy a little spiciness thus sprinkled some cajun seasoning on  while warm.


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


1-Preheat oven to 450 degrees (F). Line a large baking sheet with tinfoil (shiny side up); place baking rack onto prepared baking sheet; set aside.

2- Wash and peel the sweet potatoes ( I like the skin so left it on) and cut off  ends. Slice the sweet potatoes in half (lengthwise), then cut each piece into wedges

3-Place wedges in a large bowl, then add in the olive oil, salt, sugar, seasoning, and black pepper. Mix well, making sure each wedge is coated with oil and spices.

4-Arrange  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. 

5-Cool wedges on pan for 5 minutes.


  1. Larry will love this. He like spicy foods.Thank you Linda..

  2. I make these all the time. I just cut the potatoes in either slices or cubes. They are so creamy on the inside. My favorite way to cook them. I vary the spices each time.
