Raise your hand if you love fries! I'm right there with you. When I eliminated regular potatoes on the AIP diet I knew I had to make sweet potatoes fill that void, particularly in the fries department. These wedges are a guilt-free, healthy alternative to the typical fried potatoes. Eat them as a side to my Bunless Burgers and/or dip them in my AIP Ketchup, AIP Mustard, or AIP Sweet & Tangy BBQ Sauce for some finger lickin' good!
