  • Summary

    These potatoes are not quite as crispy like fries but they're better for you because they're baked. The serving size says 4, but I eat all of them at one sitting! Adapted from Ina Garten's book,"Back to Basics"(Barefoot Contessa). Ina likes to cut them into fairly large wedges, but I like them smaller(like french fries) because I love the crispiness and get more of it with smaller wedges! Sweet potatoes are available year-round, but their prime season is really autumn and winter. Choose potatoes that are smooth and unblemished, and use them fairly soon because they don't keep as well as other potatoes.

    Ingredients

    • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
    • 2 -3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus extra for sprinkling
    • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
