Baked Sweet Potato Sticks




  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  •  4 small sweet potatoes, sliced lengthwise into sticks
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • parmesan cheese (grated) – optional




  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, mix olive oil and paprika.  Add potato sticks, and stir by hand to coat.  Place in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, stirring occasionally and turning over half way through.
  4. Sprinkle with the cheese and salt and pepper and continue to cook for a further 10 minutes.


NOTE:  The total cooking time will depend on how thick you slice the potatoes, so keep a watch that they don’t overcook.
