1/4 cup olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Garlic Aioli:

3 cloves garlic, grated

1/2 lemon, juiced 

1 cup mayonnaise

Place the sweet potato wedges in a bowl and toss to coat with the oil, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Place on the preheated sheet tray and bake until slightly crisp and beginning to brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
