The thirty-third recipe I made with the Chili-Spiced Sweet Potato Wedges with Maple Pecans, and can be found in Ellie Krieger's new book You Have it Made, page 339. Gaye chose the theme for this week "Vegetable Harvest."
Ingredient list: sweet potatoes, pure maple syrup, olive oil, chili powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and pecans.
Hunting for new vegetable recipes is always fun for me as everyone here likes all the vegetables (okay, Brussels sprouts have a very small following of 1 here), and I know they will be eaten with gusto. This is a great recipe, very easy because you just cut the sweet potatoes and douse them in the spice/flavoring mixture before baking them. To make the pecan topping requires a little stovetop heating.
The spice/flavor mixture for this recipe jazzes up sweet potatoes and compliments the flavor nicely. The guys really loved them and want me to make them again soon so I guess that is testimony enough. The spice/flavor mixture could be changed up in hundreds of ways, I can see that this will be many recipes in the future, not just one. Definitely a repeat.
