Have I mentioned how I’ve recently become obsessed with Sweet Potatoes? It wasn’t until last year at Thanksgiving when I tried a delicious Sweet Potato recipe that I realized just how much I loved them. Sad that it took 31 years of life to figure that out and have been missing out all this time! Bottom line, I REALLY like Sweet Potatoes and love that with fall here I’m excited to be cooking with them this year – for the first time!! YAY!!
One of the recipes we make on an almost weekly basis is our Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots. They are simple AND delicious. When I saw a recipe for Candied Sweet Potatoes on Martha Stewart that looked just like our carrots, I knew I had to try them as well. I’m so glad the dish was a hit!! The recipe was simple and was perfect!! I wanted to make sure I shared it with you before Thanksgiving time, because we’ll definitely be having this on Thanksgiving (and I’m sure a few more times before then).
I know sweet potatoes are a fall-favorite veggie and if you’ll be cooking with them, like us, then you’ll want to try this delicious recipe. It would be a great side dish with any meal!
Here’s the recipe for Candied Sweet Potatoes:
- 2 -3 sweet potatoes (peeled and cut into 1 inch thick wedges)
- 2 - 3 TB butter
- ⅓ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup water
- salt and pepper (to season)
- Add all ingredients to a pan and bring to a boil.
- Turn heat down to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes without stirring.
- Cook on low for an addition 3-5 minute stirring until potatoes are well coated.
YUM, YUM, YUM!
I’m telling you right now… if you love Sweet Potatoes, you’ll love this recipe. It is seriously delicious and will be a hit at your next meal – ESPECIALLY if you serve it for Thanksgiving!! 😉
