Spicy Sweet-Potato Oven Fries

Spicy Sweet-Potato Oven Fries


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 4 small sweet potatoes, each cut lengthwise into 8 wedges (about 1 3/4 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper


Preheat oven to 425°.

Brush a large shallow pan with 1 teaspoon oil. Place pan in oven.

Combine 2 teaspoons oil and remaining ingredients in a large bowl; toss well. Carefully remove pan from oven; spread potato mixture in pan. Bake at 425° for 35 minutes or until crisp, stirring occasionally.

    To caramelize sweet-potato wedges, first preheat the pan in the oven, so the potatoes sizzle when added to the pan. They will be more crisp if you stir them a few times as they bake.
  • Yield: Makes 4 serving (serving size: 8 wedges)
