• 2 large sweet potatoes peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary fresh or died
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder 
  • ½ teaspoon season salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and line two large baking sheets with foil; set aside.

  • Place sweet potato wedges in a large Zip-loc bag (or bowl) and add olive oil, rosemary (crushed in palm to release flavor), garlic powder, season salt and pepper.

  • Shake well to combine and make sure every potato wedge is evenly coated in oil and seasonings.

  • Spray the foil-lined baking sheets with non-stick spray then lay wedges on both pans in an event layer. It is crucial not to over lap potatoes to avoid steaming and promote crisp fries.

  • Bake for 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes or so with a spatula.
