Candied Yam Wedges Recipe

Candied French Fry Recipe

This candied yam wedges recipe is my absolute favorite and I’ve been making them daily! They get super caramelized on the bottom and taste just like candy. Then the tops get super soft and taste like mashed potatoes. Pair them with this mustard dill sauce that is so smooth and creamy but adds a bit of crunch from the whole grain mustard and it seriously it the most perfect combination of flavors and textures!

One thing to note when making this recipe is you want to use avocado oil baking spray instead of extra virgin, canola or any other type. The reason being is the avocado oil’s smoke point is what helps get these yam fries super caramelized on the bottom! This is a great option as is this brand.
