These roasted sweet potato wedges are a sweet and spicy easy side dish. They’re perfectly paired with burgers, steak, meatloaf and chili and a great dish to bring to a bbq or cookout.



1/2 c. unsalted butter

1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

2 tsp salt

2 tsp black pepper

4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut lengthwise into wedges


Preheat the oven to 400°F.

In a bowl, gently melt the butter in the microwave in 30 second increments (or melt in a small saucepan on low heat). Stir in the cinnamon, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper.

Place the sweet potato wedges in a large bowl and pour the butter mixture on top. Use your hands to toss them, making sure each wedge gets coated fully. Turn out the bowl onto a large sheet pan and arrange the wedges in a single layer.

Bake 25-30 minutes, taking the wedges out and flipping them halfway through. Test the wedges for doneness with a fork or knife – the center should be smooth and the outside dry.


For crispier wedges, bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, depending on thickness of your wedges. Watch the entire time, as these can burn quickly.
