The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Crispy sweet potato wedges

You can make these potato wedges with or without the skin. It’s all a matter of personal taste. I like them with the skin.

What you’ll need:

4 medium sweet potatoes, cut into large, thick wedges*
1 Tbl vegetable oil
¼ tsp pepper
1/8 tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ tsp paprika

Place wedges in a large bowl. Cover with cold water and let stand 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Drain potato wedges and spread on a double layer of paper towels. Press another double layer of paper towels on the top to dry them. Place them in a dry bowl and toss with oil, salt & pepper. Arrange in a single layer on prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes. Using a spatula, turn potato wedges over and sprinkle with garlic and paprika. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes, turning the pan once about halfway through baking. Serve immediately. Feeds 4.

*To make with russet potatoes, omit paprika.
