All of this talk about maple syrup is getting me hungry. This recipe serves 12 and only takes about 10 minutes of active cooking.
Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes
2.5 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1.5 in pieces (8 cups)
1/3 cup Vermont maple syrup
2 tbs butter or margarine, melted
1 tbs lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
Pepper to taste
1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
2. Place sweet potatoes in an even layer in a glass baking dish. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl and pour the mixture over the sweet potatoes. (This is the perfect time to get a child helping with dinner!)
3. Cover and bake the potatoes for 15 minutes. Uncover, stir, and bake again while stirring every 15 minutes until the potatoes are tender and beginning to brown. This will take 45 minutes to an hour.
Using a non-dairy butter instead of dairy will bring this recipe down to no cholesterol!
