Making this simple but oh, so delicious recipe, all you need is a handful of ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. For this recipe is best to use medium sweet potatoes instead of larger sized ones. I used olive oil as this is always my choice when I make healthy recipes but sunflower oil would work well too.

For my sweet potato wedges I used hot chili powder as that’s what I had on hand but you could substitute it with cayenne pepper or hot paprika. As herbs I always prefer thyme but this herb could easily be replaced by basil or oregano.

I made my own mayonnaise for the sauce and I totally recommend you do the same as it tastes completely different than store bought mayo and enhances the flavors in the sweet potato wedges.

Please note that altering the recipe will give a slightly different taste so keep this aspect in mind if you choose convenience over taste and decide to use the spice you have on hand.

    I love sweet potatoes but this recipe puts them through the roof. nice cozy munchies to go with our cool winter nights here in Canada. Thank you for this recipe.

  2. Naming ingredients (sweet potatoes,salt,pepper, chili powder, etc.) without listing quantities is what my mom did to my sisters; she meant no harm but she was a ‘scratch’ cook who now has daughters who are convinced they don’t belong in a kitchen because they were never given proper instruction. Please take the word ‘recipe’ off of your header, you’ve given us a food ‘story’. You’ve wasted my time….

    1. Dan, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. You need to learn how to read blogs, though! And when the article says “Click to read more”, I strongly suggest you do so, if you want to see the rest of it, which in this particular case, is the mysterious recipe.
