This is definitely my favorite side dish. I like to have 2-3 sweet potatoes on hand just to make these, if the occasion arises. It’s also incredibly simple and can cook while you prepare the rest of dinner.
Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges
Serves 3-4 people
2-3 sweet potatoes, skins on (if you like them, of course)
3-4 T. olive oil
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil. Cut each potato in half lengthwise and in half width-wise. Then, turn them with the flat surface touching the board, and cut them into wedges by slicing them lengthwise. Toss them in a large bowl, and drizzle with 3 T. olive oil (the oil should coat all slices of the sweet potato well, and there should be a little excess in the bottom of the bowl. Add more, if needed). Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss to completely coat. Spread in a single layer over the baking sheet, and roast for 30-35 minutes, stirring and flipping the fries once or twice during baking. The fries are done when the are tender to a fork’s prick.
