We really enjoy these at our house, If you like sweet potatoes , this is a new way to fix them, they are like spicey steak fries oven baked, the orignial recipe makes 2 pans 13x9, unless familys over for dinner I make them for just Hubby and me as a side ,I fix 2 potatoes, just cut back on salt and pepper. This is also a good finger food .

  1. Heat Oven to 400f- cover bottoms and sides of pans with foil and spray with cooking spray , Peel Potatoes and cut into wedges 1 inch thick ( I prick my potatoes a few times with point of knife, wrap in waxed paper and put in the microwave for 3 or 4 minutes for 2 potatoes, the skin will slide off and much easier to slice, ,be careful don't cook them all the way ) pour oil in a baggie, put potatoe wedges in the baggie with the oil, close baggie and toss the potatoes in the oil,
  2. Take potatoes out of oil and lay on pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper, put in oven.cook uncovered
