Fall Favorites

Ok here's a new one I LOVE - I conjured it up this weekend when I saw maple whipped mashed sweet potatoes at Whole Foods.  This is a great side dish for dinners or with lunches.  I took it today to work as a side with my salmon and spinach salad:

Baked Sweet Potato Wedges with Maple Glaze

-  4 large sweet potatoes peeled
-  1/4 cup of sugar free maple syrup (I like Nature's Flavors brand at Whole Foods or Vitamin Cottage - it is made with all natural Stevia and not chemical engineered sweeteners)
-  Stevia to sprinkle

Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and cut into small wedges.  Put in large mixing bowl and pour maple syrup on top - stir until well covered. 

Arrange wedges on large cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with Stevia.  Place into oven on high Broil for 5 minutes checking continuously to make sure they are not burning.  (I turn mine after 3 minutes).  This makes them nice and crispy!
