Total Time 30 mins


  • 1 ½ to 2 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste


Oven Method:
  • Preheat oven to 425˚F.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Place an oven rack on the baking sheet and set aside.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut potato lengthwise into 8 wedges and then, if you prefer smaller potatoes, you can cut those wedges in half, crosswise.
  • Arrange potatoes on top of the oven rack; set aside.
  • In a bowl combine olive oil, italian seasoning, garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper; mix to combine.
  • Brush the seasoned oil mixture over the potatoes.
  • Roast potatoes for 18 minutes. Turn on the broiler and bake for an additional 3 to 4 minutes, or until they're browned and crispy. Keep an eye on them because it's easy to burn when the broiler is on.
  • Remove from oven.
  • Taste for salt and adjust accordingly.
  • Serve.
Air Fryer Method:
  • Preheat air fryer to 400˚F.
  • Place seasoned potato wedges in air fryer basket - do not crowd the basket; cook in batches.
  • Cook sweet potatoes for 10 minutes; turn potato wedges over and continue to cook for 10 more minutes.
  • Repeat with next batch.
