Baked Sweet Potato Wedges

These sweet potato wedges were delicious! Super simple to make, they are a great addition to any meal!

The recipe is from the mccormick.com website, using LAWRY’S Seasoned Salt to season the sweet potatoes. I am sure you can season these potatoes with anything you like! Just salt & pepper, a little chili powder… I just made them with the seasoned salt because I use that often, so it worked for us!

I buy the bag of sweet potatoes at my local Costco store, & then I always wonder what to do with them! So thanks to Google… I found this recipe

You only need to have some sweet potatoes, a couple eggs, some seasoning & oil … and a baking sheet! I used regular vegetable oil & more seasoned salt then the recipe said to use. & the recipe said to beat the egg whites until they were stiff peaks, but honestly, I did not want to use my mixer…didnt want to have to clean it! So I just whisked the egg whites until they were frothy…. not sure if the potatoes would have turned out differently…but I like them the way I made them…

Here is the recipe  … I adapted it slightly …from mccormick.com

2 large sweet potatoes

3 tbsp oil

2 egg whites

1 tbsp seasoned salt

Method

Preheat oven to 425f

You will need a rimmed baking sheet

  1. Prepare the sweet potatoes… wash & dry them, then cut the potatoes into wedges about 1 inch thick, set aside
  2. Pour the oil onto the baking sheet, spread it around & put the baking sheet into the oven to heat the oil, for about 10 minutes…when the oil is hot, remove from the oven VERY CAREFULLY! OF COURSE THE OIL IS REALLY HOT, SO YOU DO NOT WANT TO GET IT ON YOU !!!!!
  3. Meanwhile, you can whisk the egg whites until foamy like I did, or use you mixer & beat them to stiff peaks… 
  4. Add the seasoned salt to the egg whites
  5. Coat the prepared sweet potato wedges with the egg whites
  6. Put the coated sweet potatoes onto the hot baking sheet in a single layer
  7. Bake for about 30 minutes  or until the potatoes are nicely browned….TURN THE POTATOES HALFWAY THROUGH THE COOKING TIME 
  8. Season to taste… maybe adding some salt…

Enjoy!
