How to Make Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges
First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Next, gather your ingredients. You’ll need about 1 pound of sweet potatoes, rosemary, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and olive oil. That’s it!
These potatoes are incredibly simple, but really pack some flavor.
Next, peel and slice your sweet potatoes lengthwise into wedges. Try slicing each sweet potato in half, then slice each half into quarters. For large potatoes, you may need to slice them even smaller.
Then, toss them in a bowl with your olive oil and spices. Next, lay them out on your prepared baking sheet.
Now, it’s time to bake. Your sweet potato wedges will take about 30 minutes in the oven, turning once halfway through baking.
These potatoes turn out soft in the middle, with crispy edges. They are so flavorful and perfect for fall, but can easily be enjoyed year round.
Rosemary reminds me of fall and winter holiday flavors. I think this would make a fantastic healthy side dish for Thanksgiving for Christmas, don’t you think?
