Sweet potato wedges with lemon and dill mayonnaise

Sharing is caring!

You’ll fall in love with these delicious, super easy oven baked sweet potato wedges, you’ll want to make (and eat them) ALL the time – they’re so good!

These sweet potato wedges are one of my favourite things to cook at the moment.

They always taste good and well, that lemon and dill mayonnaise drizzled over them… just makes them even better!

Roasted sweet potato wedges take less time to make than ordinary white potatoes and contain less carbs so they really are a win-win.

To make a batch of these delicious, crisp, baked sweet potato wedges, just scrub the sweet potatoes, slice into wedges and toss in a tablespoon of olive oil, bake for 20 minutes. Job done.

Sweet Potato Wedges Ingredients

To make our crispy sweet potato wedges you will need…

  • 4 sweet potatoes – scrub the skins well to remove all the dirt, then pat them dry on kitchen paper.
  • 1 tbs olive oil – you can use rapeseed or sunflower oil if you prefer
  • sea salt and black pepper

To make the lemon and herb mayonnaise you will need…

  • 2 heaped tbs mayonnaise
  • juice of a lemon

You can also make this as a lime and coriander mayonnaise and it’s equally delicious!

How to make sweet potato wedges oven recipe

  • Heat the oven to 200C

How to cut sweet potato for making wedges

Sweet potato wedges skin on or off?

It’s totally down to personal choice – if you prefer to peel them then do so now before you slice them into wedges.

  • Slice the sweet potatoes into halves length ways and then each half into wedges – you’ll probably get 3 wedges from each half.

How to bake sweet potato wedges

  • Put them in a mixing bowl, pour over the oil, season with salt and black pepper, then toss together using your hands to coat everything evenly.
  • Tip the wedges into a non-stick roasting tin and cook in the oven for around 20 – 25 minutes until they’re tender when you insert a knife/skewer.
  • Whilst they cook make the flavoured mayonnaise. Add the mayonnaise to a small bowl, pour in the lemon juice and stir through the snipped up dill.
  • Once the wedges are cooked serve them with a little drizzle of the tangy mayonnaise.

  • Give your wedges a smoky flavour by sprinkling on the smoked paprika.
  • Make rosemary sweet potato wedges by scattering over finely chopped fresh rosemary as you toss them in olive oil.
  • Flavour your mayonnaise with garlic or lime and coriander.

What do sweet potatoes pair well with?

Sweet potatoes have a lovely sweet, caramelised taste and in any way – baked, mashed, or made into our delicious wedges they pair really well with lots of different foods. Try…

  • Delicious wedges straight out of the oven drizzled with lemon and dill mayo, great alongside a big juicy burger. 
  • These sweet potato wedges taste delicious cold, dipped in hummus – you might like to try our vibrant and earthy beetroot hummus.
  • The sweet potatoes are also great with chicken, stews and casserole or alongside quiche, omelettes or with a big greek salad.

If you’re wondering “why are my sweet potato wedges not crispy?”

The best way to ensure your wedges stay crispy is to make sure you dry the skins really well before tossing in the olive oil.

Next, be sure to cook them in a hot oven. And I always find they crisp up better if you use a good quality non-stick roasting tin.
