Last week's FRIDAY recipe posted on SATURDAY because I can't seem to read a calendar. Huh.
THIS week's Friday recipe is actually posting on Friday (I double checked)
Sweet Potatoes and Brown Sugar is a favorite in my household but we only really have it around the holidays. I don't know where the recipe originated, but it's very tastey. The brown sugar sauce is really good with ham, too. :) This one is from MyRecipes.
1/4 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
4 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled, cut in half crosswise, and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
Preheat oven to 400°.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar, water, salt, nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon; bring to a simmer. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Discard cinnamon stick. Combine sugar mixture and potato wedges in a large bowl; toss well to coat. Arrange potato mixture on a large jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 40 minutes or until tender, stirring after 20 minutes.
