Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Wedges

I cobbled this together as a side dish tonight and enjoyed it so much I thought I'd better write it down before I forgot it. Fast and easy to make, these are the best potato wedges I've made. I was going to take a picture of them, but they didn't last long enough.

Yummy Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Wedges
(serves 4-6)
2 medium sweet potatoes
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I used panko)
1/2 cup finely shredded parmesan
Italian seasoning (to taste)
kosher salt
red pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 400F

Chop the potatoes into thick wedges without peeling
In a bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, cheese and Italian seasoning
Dip the wedges in the egg and then dredge in the breadcrumb mixture
Arrange in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet or glass oven dish
Sprinkle with kosher salt and red pepper flakes
Bake for 25-30 minutes

Those sound really good, so hopefully I can try those pretty soon. Any big races coming up soon? I'm thinking of doing Rocky Raccoon, but only the 50 miler!

Oh and possibly Bandera 50k as well. I've never run real trails so it should be interesting to say the least.

Rocky Raccoon was my first 50 miler last year - it's a good one on a beautiful course. Bandera is a great course too, but very technical. Be sure to get some good training runs on hilly rocky terrain.

I'll be at both Rocky and Bandera, but Sunmart is next up for me.
