Isn't it amazing how your energy level can drop in just 4 hours? I was planning dinner during lunch and it included making these sweet potatoes and I was going to finally make Kentucky Hot Browns. I thought it would be easy to whip up a Mornay sauce after work when my sweet potatoes were in the oven. I ended up with turkey on toast. But the sweet potatoes are a success. You bite into them and get the hint of brown sugar and then the cayenne jumps on your taste buds.
Sweet & Spicy Sweet Potatoes
1 large sweet potato, pared and cut into wedges
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp black pepper
Place sweet potato wedges in a medium sized bowl. Pour olive oil over and toss. Mix together spices and brown sugar in a small bowl and sprinkle over potatoes. Place on a lightly greased pan (an Anolon crisper works great) and bake at 350° for 1 hour. Turn wedges every 15 minutes for even cooking.
