Candied Sweet Potatoes


KEEP IN MIND: all of these amounts can be changed, you can add more or less as needed, it’s hard to mess these up!

4 tablespoons butter, plus 1 tablespoon for greasing
6-8 medium yams or sweet potatoes, peeled
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons maple syrup
Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease a 9 by 13-inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon butter.
Cut each of the yams into cubes or wedges.
Lay them out in the prepared baking dish in an even layer.
Melt the butter (in a small saucepan over medium heat, or in the microwave.)
Stir the brown sugar into the butter and allow to dissolve. Then add syrup and mix.
Pour the glaze over the yams and sprinkle with a little nutmeg.
Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for about 45 minutes or until the yams are tender when pierced with a fork but they still hold their shape.
Maybe 10-15 minutes before they are done, take yams out of oven and top with a layer of marshmallows. Put back in oven and they should get golden and toasted.
