These were delicious! I cut mine into fries rather than wedges. My husband even ate and enjoyed them though he has told me many times he doesn't like like sweet potatoes.
These didn't not come out for me very well. I tried them in the oven on a pan covered with foil and they stuck to the foil - even with the foil oiled. Took them off the foil and they finished okay. Finished the batch by frying. You really have to watch them or they will burn. Part of the problem was that I couldn't get an even cut because the sweet potato is hard. They were okay, but not great and Huny didn't give me a thumb's up to keep them on the menu.
These easy to make sweet potatoes are a great snack! I'll be making these again soon! If you want an interesting flavor to compliment the potatoes, add a sprinkle of chilotle pepper seasoning!
Wowza. I cut the sweet potatos into fries. The first indication that this was the ride side dish for the evening was the awesome aroma that filled my kitchen. I understood from the get-go that these are baked, not fried, so they are not hard and crunchy. But the flavor and the fact that these are way more healthy than fried french fries keeps these on my "must" list. I served with a side of aioli sauce. Nice and easy recipe!
I'm rating this for my hubby. He loved these. If you have problems with them sticking, just bake them on parchment paper! That solves the problem. I made him just one small sweet potato cut in medallion slices. Rather than measure out the adjustments in exact proportions, I just used all the ingredients to eye but following the directions as written. He loved them and wants them again! Thanks for the recipe!
I did a simple variation of this recipe when I combined the Tangy Italian dressing, Parmesean Cheese, Garlic powder and pepper in a glass baking dish and mixed it all up into a slurry. I pre-cooked the potatoes in the Microwave, then sliced them into wedges or large fries. I then coated them in the dressing mix, and placed them onto a preheated BBQ grill along with the meat I was cooking at that time. It was a great meal.
Good recipe!!! Instead of wedges, I cut them into 1/4 inch thick slices and cooked them on a veggie screen on the grill at 375 degrees for 15 min. then turned and continued cooking another 5 minutes. The seasoning is just right and even folks who don't think they like sweet potatoes will eat these!
These are awesome!
