Spicy Sweet-Potato Oven Fries

Yield Makes 4 serving (serving size: 8 wedges)
To caramelize sweet-potato wedges, first preheat the pan in the oven, so the potatoes sizzle when added to the pan. They will be more crisp if you stir them a few times as they bake.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 4 small sweet potatoes, each cut lengthwise into 8 wedges (about 1 3/4 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
