Sweet Potato Wedges

This is a great little fake out for anyone trying to watch what they eat. I'm used to sweet potatoes with cinnamon and sugar, but served up savory, they are quite a treat. Add a little ketchup, and you'll think your eating something completely sinful.
Ingredients:

2 sweet potatoes

2 tbs olive oil

1 tsp course salt

½ tsp fresh ground black pepper

1 tbs fresh rosemary

Serves 4

Start by washing and cutting the potato in half, and then in half again, and then in half again to create wedges. Next, cut each of these wedges in half short ways. You will wind up with about 16 pieces for each potato.

Next, finely chop about a tablespoon of fresh rosemary.
Place all wedges on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with rosemary, salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons olive oil.
Use your hands to mix around the ingredients while on the tray. You could also use a bowl and a spoon for mixing if you prefer.
Place into a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes. Flip over each wedge with either a spatula, or a fork, and then bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven, and serve with ketchup. Enjoy!
