Baked Sweet Potato Wedges with Ketchup

To make baked sweet potato wedges, I preheat oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit. 

To prep sweet potatoes for wedges, I scrub the skin of sweet potato and cut into wedges. I like to cut potato length-wise into two parts and then cut each half into three wedges lengthwise. You can choose to make 3 or 2 wedges per slice. If you are shopping Sweet Potatoes specially to make baked wedges.. I recommend picking smaller sweet potatoes. These can be cut perfect size wedges. Bake evenly and yield crispy wedges. (more on this ahead)

Once wedges are cut and ready to bake. I coat'em with olive oil and season with spices - mix of paprika, garlic, onion and cayenne. That's it. Place on baking sheet, bake and serve. 

CRISPY BAKED SWEET POTATO

Baking Sweet Potato cut into wedges gives opportunity to get wedges crispy from outside while perfectly baked and moist from inside. To make wedges extra crispy, I use these easy tricks when baking: 

  1. Preheat Oven and Baking Sheet: While preparing (cutting) sweet potato wedges, pre-heat oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit. And place a baking lined with aluminium foil in the oven to preheat. TO bake wedges, I place those on preheated baking sheet to get extra crispy from outside.
  2. Don't overcrowd the Baking Sheet: Don't put lots of wedges on one sheet. Use two sheet if needed. Less crowded wedges will have space for heat to circulate. Result is crispier baked sweet potato wedges.
  3. Broil for last 1-2 minutes of baking: Broil baked wedges for last 1-2 minutes for that extra caramelized crispy outside. Place keep an eye. Don't let's burn.

Follow above three and you will always serve perfectly baked and crispy sweet potato wedges.
