• How to Make Sweet Potato Wedges

    March 29, 2012

    Sweet Potato Wedges have pretty much become a staple in my diet in recent months. They’re delicious, nutritious, satisfying, and I just can’t get enough of them.

    I’ve recently received a number of questions about how I make my Sweet Potato Wedges, so here’s a tutorial that shares all of my little secrets!

    Preheat oven to 400*F.

    Start with two medium sweet potatoes.

    Cut off ends.

    Cut sweet potatoes in half.

    Then, cut those piece in half lengthwise.

    And then cut them in half lengthwise again.

    And again. Hello, wedges!

    IMG_2176 (750x563)

    Add sweet potato wedges to a large mixing bowl and drizzle with olive oil (approximately 1-2 tablespoons).

    Sprinkle with sea salt and mix until wedges are fully coated with olive oil and salt.

    Transfer sweet potato wedges to a cooking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.

    At the 20-minute mark, toss around wedges to prevent sticking and then bake for another 20-25 minutes. (I typically toss around the wedges again after 10 minutes. I don’t want them to burn!)

    When sweet potato wedges start to lightly brown, turn up the oven to broil and cook for 5-7 minutes until the edges are crisped to your liking.

    Remove from the oven and enjoy!

    How many wedges do you usually eat at a time?

    Um, your page comes up before Paula Deen’s recipe for sweet potato fries on Google…that’s pretty badass:-)


    Tina October 22, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    Oh, yea?!? Cool!!

    I didn’t know the skin was edible! Do you think it works better like that? Have you ever peeled them first?


    Tina January 24, 2013 at 11:00 am

    I’ve never tried them peeled. I don’t want to miss out on the fiber… and I’m just lazy! 🙂

    I’m making these right now! I decided to try coconut oil instead since I just got my first jar ever yesterday!

    These are delicious, thank you for sharing! I have tried making sweet potato fries before, but they never turned out the way I wanted. So, I was a little skeptical, but these turned out great!


    Hayley October 22, 2013 at 2:12 am

    Thanks for the great recipe! I didn’t have a broil setting on my oven, but they still turned out pretty good. I loaded mine up with salt haha. Deliciousness.
