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.
