How to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 400° F.

    In a large bowl, combine the oil, sugar, nutmeg, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Stir in the cumin and cinnamon. Add the sweet potato wedges and toss to coat.

    Transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet and arrange in a single layer. Roast, turning once, until the edges are dark brown and the wedges are crisp, about 1 hour.

    Make-Ahead Note: The sweet potatoes can be cut and seasoned up to 2 hours before cooking.
