Sweet Potato Wedges

When I got home from work, Ryan and I took Sadie on a walk around the neighborhood before heading to the grocery store to pick up some essentials for the week.

While there, we also nabbed a couple of sweet potatoes to incorporate into our dinner this evening.

I started by slicing the sweet potato before tossing the wedges in canola oil and salt.

I then spread them out on a cookie sheet and baked them at 415 degrees for approximately 20 minutes, flipping them halfway through.

We enjoyed the wedges along with muenster cheese and Morningstar Farms veggie bacon sandwiches.

It was a pretty random dinner, but it was also exactly what I was craving!

The rest of the night will be spent curled up on the couch with a movie.

In the DVD player this evening:


Ryan and I wanted to see it when it was in theaters, but never got around to it. Weโ€™ve heard great things, so letโ€™s hope itโ€™s a funny one!

  9. I got a tip from Rachel Ray to boil the slices for 5 minutes before baking. Since I started doing that they have been crisping up very nice!

    I am not allowed to have Morningstar bacon anymore, 2 plates shattered in our microwave, and I burnt a paper plate, sadly I only nuked them for 1 1/2 minutes!

  20. Very movie movie! I hope you enjoy.

  21. I love sweet potatoes and any recipe that is involves them. thank you for sharing and I’m be trying this very soon.

    Your movie choice is excellent as well. Seems like the perfect night if you ask me. ๐Ÿ™‚
