Kids love to eat these colorful sticks. They look like fries and can be dipped in different sauces.

Ingredients

  • 6 medium sweet potatoes or russet potatoes (about 2 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt or 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Honey Sesame Sauce (recipe below)
  • Creamy Chive Sauce (recipe below)

Directions

  1. Scrub potatoes with a soft vegetable brush under running water. Cut each unpeeled potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half lengthwise into 4 wedges. In a covered 4-quart Dutch oven, cook potato wedges in boiling, lightly salted water for 8 minutes or until just tender. Drain and cool slightly. Place potatoes in a large bowl; drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Toss gently to coat.
  2. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill potato wedges on the greased rack of an covered grill directly over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges begin to brown, turning occasionally.
  3. Transfer potatoes to a serving dish; serve with Honey Sesame Sauce and/or Creamy Chive Sauce. Serve immediately or at room temperature. Makes 8 servings.
