Sweet Potato Bake

Serves: 6-8

2 lbs. sweet potatoes
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. syrup
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 t. cinnamon

Peel potatoes and cut into large chunks. Place in a large pot, cover with water and cook, covered for 30 minutes. Drain potatoes and place in a 2-qt. baking dish. In a small saucepan, combine remaining ingredients. Cook and stir until mixture boils. Pour over potatoes. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Slightly mash potatoes and stir to mix in sauce.

Tips: This is a nice, simple way to make a sweet potato casserole to compliment your holiday meal. Since sweet potatoes are pretty large, usually two will make up the two pounds you need but you can always weigh them at the store just to check. If you prefer to use canned sweet potatoes just substitute 2-18 oz. cans and skip the stovetop step. Also if you have maple syrup use that instead of regular pancake syrup (I never have real maple syrup so my sweet potatoes just have to use the fake stuff.) I pair this with Baked Ham Glaze for the holidays. I also shared this recipe at Life as MOM's Ultimate Recipe Swap.

This sounds like a great recipe and I love sweet potato. This recipe would be nice with pork chops as well and I would use the fresh sweet potato as we always have it available. Thanks for the recipe.
