Move over French fries! Sweet Potato Wedges are the healthier pick to accompany your favorite burger. They're simple to prepare, and bake in about 20 minutes.

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 450°. Peel sweet potatoes; cut in half lengthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into thirds. Place potatoes in a bowl; add olive oil, kosher salt, and ground red pepper, tossing to coat. Arrange potato wedges on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Turn potatoes; bake 10 to 12 minutes or until tender.

These are terrific. I love sweet potatoes and this is a great way to prepare them. I like the salt and cayenne. Only reason that it is not 5 stars is that my husband complained that they were not crispy enough.

Simple, easy and tasty. I also added a touch of cumin and a decent amount of cracked black pepper.
