Miso Sweet Potatoes

Inspired by melting potatoes, we gave the same treatment to sweet potatoes. The results? Roasted potatoes that are creamy on the inside but perfectly crisp on the outside. Adding miso to the butter mixture adds great umami flavor and helps the potatoes caramelize while baking. Don't skip lining the baking sheet or the miso-butter might burn on the pan and cause the sweet potatoes to stick.

This had a little too much vinegar and I don't think japanese sweet potatoes were the way to go. They dried out too much and not enough dressing to moisten it up.

Quick, easy and delicious! As Hallie did, I melted the butter in the bowl first before adding other ingredients. We will make this often.

This was incredibly tasty and so easy to make ! We served it with the "Pork chops with Balsamic Sweet Onions" recipe and it was great.

Very good! The glazes could easily accommodate 2 - 2.5 lb sweet potatoes. Also, I found it easiest to melt the butter in the large bowl in the microwave, then add the miso, salt and pepper. The syrup/vinegar/rosemary drizzle I also whisked in that same bowl. Less to clean up.
