Sweet Potato Wedges & Wraps

Category: ,

Reactions: 


I've recently fallen in love with sweet potatoes and I came across these recipe's on a food blog I've started following.
I was leery as to whether or not the kids would like them, but they did surprisingly well. The kids L-O-V-E-D them. The baked wedges are a great alternative to the fattening Sweet Potato Fries that are selling so well in the fast food restaurants these days.

Sweet Potato Wedges (aka Sweet Potato Baked Fries)
2 large sweet potatoes
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp sea salt (or kosher/course salt)
1 tsp thyme
3 T olive oil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix garlic, salt, thyme and oil. Set aside. Peel, rinse, dry and cut potatoes into wedge like shape, trying to be somewhat consistent in size for baking purposes. Place on large baking sheet in a single layer and brush on oil mixture so that wedges are completely covered. Bake in oven 20-25 minutes until browned and tender. Serves 6.
