Roasted Sweet Potatoes

These are delicious. If you want, make these and then regular fries and mix them up. YUM!

The new French fries

Serves 4

  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut in wedges 1” (orange colour)
  • 1 tbsp. extra fine olive oil
  • 1 tsp dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/8 tsp paprika

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel and cut the potatoes into one inch thick wedges. Put the potatoes in a bowl and pour the olive oil over. Toss together so the potatoes are covered with the oil.

Mix the sugar and seasonings together and mix with the potatoes, again making sure they are all coated.

Spread on a non-stick cooking sheet big enough to hold all the potatoes without overcrowding.

Bake these for thirty minutes, turning at the fifteen minute mark. They should be tender and browned.

This is a great dish to serve with any summer meal. For some reason, as wonderful as these babies are, they just taste that much more so when on the deck enjoying a barbecue.

If you wish, use a Chipotle sauce mixed with mayo for dipping.
