We loved this! Like others, I was afraid it would be too spicy, but I trusted the reviews and they were just right......not too spicy at all. Since we aren't supposed to eat sugar, I used 1 packet of Stevia instead of the brown sugar, and it worked perfectly. We generally like our potatoes a little crisper, so next time I may try to soak my potatoes in water to draw out the starches......then dry them well and apply the oil and spices. I'm not sure if that will make them crisper, but it's worth a try. At at rate, even as is I would serve these to company.
These Sweet Potato Wedges turned out to be so delicious and was a huge hit for dinner. The hardest part was cutting up the potatoes but even that wasnt hard to do. This recipe is super easy to make and yeilds super moist sweet/salty/slightly spicy Sweet Potato Wedges! My guest gobbled them up as soon as I brought the wedges out in the serving dish. Lol! I followed the recipe to the letter w/the exception of my choice of oil. I used extra virgin coconut oil and found that I really needed 2 TBLS instead of 1 TBLS to fully coat the wedges. I used a non-stick cookie sheet and never turned the wedges during baking and the wedges just slid right off cookie sheet easily once they were done. So the next time I make this dish, I will use ¼ tsp. of salt as I don't use salt very much and it was a little salty for my tastes but otherwise...DELICIOUS! I served the wedges as a side dish with Spicy Bistro Steak Subs (http://www.food.com/recipe/spicy-bistro-steak-subs-16948?photo=125360).
