Baked Sweet Potato Wedges

Baked Sweet Potato Wedges

Sweet Potato fries, oh my! Well, wedges anyway, but fries rhymed.

Anyway, what can I say… these totally rocked! Without further ado…


3- large sweet potatoes (yams), peeled and cut into wedges (or fries too…)

Sprinkle & Drizzle with:

Drizzle with a little olive oil and toss (this makes the spices stick)

Sprinkle with Creole seasoning

Applewood Steak Rub, which had chipotle in it (or any kind of steak seasoning will do)

Chili powder (to taste)

Sugar and Cinnamon


(Although this is my concoction, you could add any dried ingredient in your spice cabinet that turns you on… because I know some of you like it HOT! 🙂


Put cut up wedges (or fries) in a bowl, coat with olive oil and dry ingredients and drizzle with honey, turning with hands to get them evenly coated.

Put on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour or until fork tender in the thickest part for wedges and 20 minutes for thinner fries. – YUMMO!

These babies turned golden brown on the edges while still being soft and orange in the center. The drizzles of honey and extra spices on the pan, turn dark brown and crusty and beg for you to eat them. I would have liked to take a picture “after” they were done. But… I was too busy eating them, sorry! Hope you like as much as we did! Enjoy! 🙂

These are the seasonings I used:
