Nothing beats being able to toss everything for dinner in the oven, let it roast away and not have to worry about the fuss or hassle to get it on the table. These Brown Sugar Herb Sweet Potato Wedges fit that bill and are packed full of flavor! They make your house smell amazingly sweet and delicious as they roast away in the oven and the brown sugar starts to caramelize all around them. What’s not to love? And you get the health benefits from the sweet potato! It really is a win-win situation.
Known for their vibrant orange color and natural sweetness, sweet potatoes are a wonderful vegetable to have on hand. Not only that, they are good for you too! Count me in!
For this recipe, the sweet potatoes can either be peeled or un-peeled. Choose whichever option you prefer! Use a sharp knife to cut the sweet potatoes into wedges before tossing them with the fresh herbs and brown sugar.
Since this recipe has a simple ingredient list, I highly recommend using fresh herbs vs. dried. But, dried herbs can also be used! Dried herbs are much more pungent, so I would use 1 teaspoon of each instead of 1 tablespoon each.
The combination of the brown sugar and fresh herbs really brings the sweet potatoes to life. Toss in a bit of seasoned salt and it’s the perfect seasoning combination!
Toss to coat the wedges completely in the brown sugar herb mixture on a baking sheet and stick them in the oven. Let the oven do it’s thing!
PS: I’ve been loving these gold baking sheet pans from Williams Sonoma!
