How to Make It

Heat oven to 400° F.

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

Transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet and arrange in a single layer. Scatter the thyme over the top and 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.

Awesome alternative to sweet potato casserole

Loved these. They were easy to make and came out terrific. I cut the sweet potato up and added the seasonings and let them set in the fridge for about an hour. This allowed the potatoes to be completely covered in the oil and sugar as the seasoning was lumpy when I first put the, together.

I wish people would get the thought out of their heads that sweet potatoes have to be seasoned with sugar/honey. I love sweet potato fries that are just lightly salted. A dip I make has curry. garlic, minced onion and mayo. don't know why these seasonings couldn't be added to the oil or sprinkled on when baking, minus the mayo, of course. Try it you'll like it!!

These tasted delicious, but bordered on being a dessert dish. I think it calls for way too much brown sugar to the already sweet sweet potatoes into a sugary, sticky mess.

Yummy addition to the sweet potato recipes. Needed extra olive oil to coat (otherwise the brown sugar was just solid lump). Definately will make again.
