Bold Oven Fried Sweet Potato Wedges

Sometimes you just need a little more kick than brown sugar can offer. The spices may seem like a quirky combination, but they work well together. I serve these as an "appetizer" because they're usually gone by the time the rest of the meal is ready.

Bold Oven Fried Sweet Potato Wedges

2 lbs sweet potato
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp salt
½ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp canola oil

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Coat a cookie sheet with cooking spray.

2. Cut potatoes in half, lengthwise. Place each potato half, cut-side down, on cutting board; cut into 1-inch thick wedges.

3. Combine chili powder, thyme, salt, cumin and cinnamon in a small bowl.

4. In a separate bowl, toss together potatoes, oil, and spice mixture until well-coated. Arrange on pan in a single layer. Roast until potatoes are tender and browned, 20-25 minutes.

  1. I love sweet potato fries and these sound so good. I will have to make them sometime soon, well once I can get to the store and buy sweet potatoes.
