Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges
Recipe Shelve the casserole dish and serve sweet potatoes in a new, finger-food style. Toss wedges with oil, brown sugar, and nutmeg then bake for about an hour. Make this dish on nights when you're busy at home–it's ideal because you can toss it in the oven and forget about it until it's ready to eat. Pair with chicken or burgers.
