I like this recipe because it can be prepared for two, or easily increased to accommodate a large gathering. The color and taste of sweet potatoes make them a must for any holiday dinner!

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, cooked and peeled
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash ground nutmeg or mace

Directions

  1. Cut potatoes into chunks; transfer to a 1-qt. baking dish. Set aside. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, water and salt; bring to a boil. Pour over potatoes.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until syrup thickens, basting occasionally. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
