Sweet Potato Squares With Lemon-Garlic Mayonnaise
Serve Sweet Potato Squares warm or at room temperature. Prepare the
Lemon-Garlic Mayonnaise first if you choose to serve the Sweet Potato
Squares warm.

2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 32 (1-inch) cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound spicy smoked sausage, cut into 32 (1/2-inch) pieces
32 wooden picks
Lemon-Garlic Mayonnaise
Garnish: fresh thyme sprigs

Preheat oven to 450. Place sweet potato cubes on a lightly greased 15- x
10-inch jelly-roll pan. Drizzle potatoes with 2 Tbsp. oil, and sprinkle
with pepper and salt. Toss to coat.

Bake at 450 for 15 to 20 minutes, turning cubes twice.

Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 3 to 4
minutes on each side or until browned. Drain on paper towels.

Place 1 sausage slice on top of 1 sweet potato cube; secure with a wooden
pick. Repeat with remaining sausage slices and potato cubes. Serve with
Lemon-Garlic Mayonnaise. Garnish, if desired.
