Easy Sweet Potato Wedges

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"After reading how good sweet potatoes are for us, I set out to find a fast, easy recipe that was also delicious. My sister and I developed this tasty side dish. The cayenne pepper can be increased to taste. I have found these wedges are even better reheated the next day, so make a bunch!"
