How To: Sweet Potato Wedges

I have discovered my newest favorite food - homemade sweet potato wedges. I made them for the first time on Friday night when we had friends over for dinner and was so pleased with the results that I made them again tonight as a side dish for BBQ chicken and greens. On Friday, I seasoned them simply with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper, so tonight, I decided to kick it up a notch with red pepper flakes...spicy!

Clean potatoes and chop them into wedgelike pieces
(2 large potatoes = 3-4 servings)
Dress wedges with olive oil, red pepper flakes,
garlic powder, salt and pepper (to taste)
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, turn wedges over,
and bake for 15-20 additional minutes
(depending on thickness of wedges)
Ready to serve! Both times they came out perfectly browned and crunchy on
the outside and smooth on the inside.
Delicious with ketchup, BBQ sauce, or as they are.
