30135216

Ingredients

  • 8 small sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation


1. Preheat oven to 450°.

2. Wash potatoes, and push a thin-bladed knife into the center of each 2-3 times. Place in a foil-lined pan, and roast until tender (about 1 hour).

3. Heat butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until melted. Add syrup, and cook until bubbly and sticky-looking. Keep warm.

4. Split each potato (use a fork for a homier appearance), drizzle with maple butter, and sprinkle with salt.



    Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 60 minutes. If you don't have enough room in your oven for sweet potatoes while roasting the turkey, cook them in advance and reheat while the turkey is resting.
  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 potato and about 1 tablespoon maple butter)
