Sweet Potato Wedges

We like fries but try to do them with a healthy and creative spin. This is the recipe for our sweet potato wedges. They are pretty dang yummy and have all the nutrition benefits of a sweet potato. Win, win!

Sweet Potato Wedges


2 medium sweet potatoes
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper


Preheat oven to 375. Dut the sweet potates into wedges. This can be a fairly difficult task as they are dense and hard to cut. Do your best. Put oil and seasonings into a gallon-sized freezer or strorage bag. Add potato wedges to bag, seal and mix the bag around so the potaoes get evenly seasoned and oiled. Place seasoned wedges on a large cookie sheet covered in tin foil. Bake in oven for 3o to 35 minutes or unitl cooked through and crisp. If they don't get crispy and are limp, you can turn the oven up to 400 for a mintue or two. This helps get them crispy but also can burn the edges. Remove and cool.


Makes 2 or 3 servings depending on your serivng size. This makes 2 servings for us. We also do this exact recipe with regular potatoes and you could add or use any seasonings you want. With regular potatoes we throw in some garlic powder too. It's a fairly healthy way to have your french fry fix. :)
