Sweet Potato Wedges

Cherie Hammond


One of our favorite ways to eat sweet potatoes! A great further result is if there are left-overs...I use them in my Sweet Potato Pie recipe (also posted)! (I found both recipes in Quick Cooking recipe books.)

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I tend to be a purist when it comes to my sweet potatoes... a little pat of butter and I'm a happy camper. Well, this recipe has changed my tune!  These delicious little wedges have a wonderful sweet flavor that's not too overwhelming.  My daughter-in-law, Krissi (not one known to voluntarily eat sweet potatoes), couldn't put these down! We look forward to trying the leftovers in Cherie's pie recipe...


3 lb
sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered lengthwise
6 Tbsp
butter, melted
6 Tbsp
orange juice
3/4 tsp
3/4 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 baking dish.
Peel, then cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise into halves. Then cut each of those halves lengthwise so you end up with quartered wedges.
Arrange them in the baking dish. Combine the butter, orange juice, salt and cinnamon; drizzle over the potatoes.
Cover with foil and bake for 55-60 minutes until fork tender. Spoon some of the sauce over them to serve!
If you have left-overs, then I love to use them in my Sweet Potato Pie recipe (also posted)!
