Baked Sweet Potato Wedges are crispy, delicious, and flavorful. They are well-seasoned with an assortment of spices that makes them salty, savory, and sweet, with a hint of heat. Serve these sweet potatoes as an appetizer with homemade honey mustard sauce or as a side dish for any occasion.


  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (or avocado oil)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • large pinch of cayenne powder
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

For the honey mustard dipping sauce (optional):

  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a large half sheet baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Slice the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut each half into 3 equal wedges, for a total of 6 wedges per potato.
  3. Place potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Add oil, salt, cumin, chili powder, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, cinnamon, and cayenne powder. Toss to combine.

  4. Line up the wedges in a single layer on the lined baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the largest wedges are tender.

  5. Meanwhile, make the honey mustard dipping sauce by mixing together dijon mustard and honey in a small mixing bowl.

  6. Top the baked sweet potato wedges with chopped cilantro and serve with honey mustard dipping sauce.


Air fryer instructions: You can also cook crispy sweet potato wedges even more quickly in the air fryer. Place the seasoned sweet potato in the air fryer basket in a single layer (you may have to cook in batches). Air fry at 375F for 15-18 minutes, until golden brown and tender. Flip the wedges halfway through cooking.

How to store: Once the sweet potato wedges cool to room temperature, transfer them to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 4 days.

How to reheat: Reheat in the oven at 375℉ for 10-15 minutes or in a 375F air fryer for 5-10 minutes until heated through and crisped up.

How to freeze: Place the sweet potato wedges in a freezer bag or freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat them in the oven or air fryer straight from frozen to maintain the texture — adding a few extra minutes to the reheating time.
