Equipment

  • Baking Sheet and Oven

Ingredients

  • 2 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1.5 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.  
  • Wash your two sweet potatoes. Grab a cutting board and knife.  Cut the sweet potato in half lengthwise.  Cut those halves again.  Then again until you have 1 inch wedges. 
  • You can do this step in a bowl or right on your baking sheet.  Lay out your wedges and drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg all over. Toss to evenly coat. *Read Notes for other options.
  • Make sure you spread out the sweet potatoes evenly on the baking sheet- don't overcrowd.
  • Roast for 25 minutes.
