How to Bake Sweet Potato Wedges

Though the feta cheese topping in this recipe is optional, it does add a tangy and salty contrast that is irresistible with the sweet potatoes.
To prepare the feta cheese topping, place a piece of feta in foil paper. When the sweet potato wedges are almost done, place the feta cheese in the oven and bake until it softens.
Once softened, combine the feta cheese with a touch of yogurt (or sour cream) and some dried oregano. You can also add a bit of cayenne or chilli flakes if you want to add heat to your topping.
