Spicy Grilled Sweet Potato WedgesMitzi told Pipper that Spicy Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges are a favorite 1-2-3 dish because it’s simple to make. But Chance is emphatic that a grownup manage all the grilling. Tails wagged big time when everyone tasted the sweet potatoe sweetness that exploded in their mouths. The herby bite of the rosemary and the coarse ground black pepper add some zip to the sweetness of the potato. Hilda loves that zip.
