Women’s Health has an easy recipe for Rosemary Sweet Potato Wedges. Cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise into 1 1/2 inch thick wedges. Put them in a bowl, drizzle a mixture of butter, rosemary, and olive oil over them. Add some salt and pepper. Put them on a baking sheet to bake until lightly browned. This is so much better than heating up some frozen french fries!
Sometimes, my family has Breakfast for Dinner. AllRecipes has an awesome recipe for Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes.

The website suggests that you top your Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes with some maple syrup or cranberry sauce.
