Candied Sweet Potatoes

Baked in an orange and maple glaze, this autumn-inspired recipe tastes more like a decadent dessert than a side dish.

Serves 6 to 8

What You Need:

  • 2 tablespoons non-hydrogenated margarine, melted 
  • Juice of 2 oranges (1/2 to 3/4 cup) 
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup 
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 
  • 5 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick

What You Do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine the first 4 ingredients and stir until well combined. Add the sliced potatoes, stir well, and transfer to a lightly oiled 9x13 baking dish.
  2. Cover and bake until the sweet potatoes are just tender, about 40 minutes. Stir once or twice during that time to distribute the liquid over the potatoes. Uncover, and bake until the glaze thickens, about 10 to 15 minutes. Cover and keep warm until ready to serve.
