These wedge-cut sweet potatoes are seasoned with a touch of chili powder, cinnamon, fresh thyme, and a generous drip good maple syrup, and then they get caramelized as they roast in the oven, for a wonderfully sweet and savory side for your Thanksgiving table.
Yesterday I was all about the pie, pie, pie, pie, pie. Today I’m all about the sides, sides, sides, sides, sides. Let’s go T-swift style and Shake! It! Up! Shake! It! Up!
You can find sweet potatoes on pretty much every Thanksgiving table. Except for ours. Growing up we never had sweet potatoes for turkey day. Or yams for that matter. I guess nobody was much of a fan of cooked marshmallows on top of canned orange jewels.
This time around, I’ve turned to the wedge—the sweet potato wedge. Gone is the mush factor found in canned varieties. Instead one of my favorite fall seasonal veggies is partnered with Real® butter, sweet maple syrup and a pinch or two of cinnamon and another smidge of cayenne. Then off on a trip to the hot oven they go.
