"You can't "not like this" sweet potato and Maple Syrup dish!"

Serves 6-7 | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 2 hours

Why I Love This Recipe

We love sweet potatoes, whether mashed, fried, baked, or what have you. But by basting these in butter and maple syrup, they take on a sweetness that is simply wonderful to experience.

Ingredients You'll Need

5 Medium to large Sweet Potatoes
1/4 cup pure Maple Syrup
1 stick ( Half cup) butter


Peel the sweet potatoes and place them in boiling water. Boil them until they're fairly tender,

take them out and let them cool

Once cooled, use a knife to cut them into 1/2 inch wide slices

In a large frying pan, melt the stick of butter, and then stir in the 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup

Turn the heat to low, and then lay the Sweet potato slices into the butter/syrup mix.

Using a turkey baster, continue to baste the sweet potatoes every 5 - 10 minutes with the butter/syrup mix

You can do this for hours, but they're really wonderful after about 45 minutes to an hour

Pairs Well With

We usually do this recipe with "big" dinners like Thanksgiving and Christmas.
