If you’re a devotee of sweet potato casserole, this may seem like a pretty big departure. But these spiced and sweet wedges have all the delicious flavors we enjoy so much in a casserole – no one will realize how lightened up they are!
You’ll need: sweet potatoes, olive oil, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a little salt and pepper.
Wash your sweet potatoes but don’t peel them. Cut into wedges and place on baking sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or lined with parchment paper (this just makes cleanup easier). Drizzle olive oil over them and toss to coat, then arrange them skin side down.
Stir together cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle half of this over the wedges.
Bake at 425, stirring them and sprinkling them with the remaining topping halfway through, until they are fork tender, about 30 minutes.
Oooh these are so good and just have a hint of brown sugar to bring out their natural sweetness, but not over the top sweet.
A great side to go with any meal!
- 2 medium to large sweet potatoes, washed but unpeeled
- A few tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Nine-tenths of wisdom is being wise in time.
