Ingredients
  

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • Wash and dry the sweet potatoes. I leave the skins on, but you can peel the potatoes.
  • With a sharp knife, slice each potato in half lengthwise and then cut into quarters. Slice each quarter into wedges, about 1/2 inch thick at the ends. Try to make sure the wedges are the same size, so they cook evenly.
  • Place the wedges in a medium bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to evenly coat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the garlic powder, paprika, salt, onion powder, and pepper. Pour the seasoning mixture over the sweet potatoes and toss until evenly coated.
  • Place the wedges on the prepared baking sheet, in a single layer, making sure the potatoes aren’t touching. If your pan is too crowded, you can divide them up onto 2 baking sheets.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven and turn the wedges over with a spatula. Return to the oven and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, or until wedges are lightly browned and tender.
  • Turn the oven to broil and broil the sweet potatoes for 2 to 3 minutes, until crispy. Don’t walk away because they will cook quickly under the broiler, you don’t want to burn them.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle with additional salt, to taste. Serve warm.
