Oven Fried Sweet Potatoes – Delicious & Healthy

This is a fabulous recipe! Oven-Fried Sweet Potatoes are a healthful, nutritious, and superior-tasting alternative for holidays or family gatherings.


Great for a different way to prepare sweet potatoes. This is truly sweet potato heaven!

I love sweet potatoes and this recipe is my new favorite way to eat them!

The water-soaking is key in getting a ‘crispier’ wedge.

The roasting intensifies the sweet potato flavor so that it is the perfect foil for the black and cayenne pepper. The garlic adds another layer of flavor.

This recipe is super just like it is but it’s also a good recipe to experiment with.

Just a few additions and it makes the perfect accompaniment for all kinds of main dishes.

Think about adding a bit of rosemary and serve it with lamb, or maybe thyme, for roast beef. How about some sage with pork?

Try the recipe as is first and then just let your imagination be your guide!
