Roasting sweet potatoes is even easier than boiling and mashing them. Maple syrup glaze transforms this ultra-simple dish into something sublime.

The flavor of this dish was so poignant and delicious! Not too sweet! Not too heavy! Candied yams are one of my favs, but Maple-Roasted Sweet Potatoes are now my new fav! Absolutely loved this dish!!

Delicious!!

I make these sweet potatoes at least once a week.. they are soo GOOD. I don't even cover them. I put them on my cookie sheet too.. so the casserole dish isn't even really needed. Trust me. I keep them in a storage container for lunch the next day.. YUMM.

Nice Flavor!

I really like the process of roasting vegetables. The end result is such a sweet and carmelized product. I can't believe my DH doesn't like sweet potatoes! What's not to like? They're sweet! I recommend this recipe - thanks for sharing!

Thanksgiving hit!

These were a hit for Thanksgiving this year. So delicious but so easy. I left them in a little longer which caused them to brown a little but everyone loved them anyway. So good my mother-in-law asked me to make them for Christmas!

Great on the Grill

These are fantastic as directed, but these can also be done on the grill for days you don't want to blast an already hot house with more heat. I make foil packets for these, divide them into servings, and toss them on the grill (cooking times vary according to temp level). The maple syrup or honey caramelizes, which is divine. I love the other variations reviewers suggested: add cinnamon, swap orange for the lemon, use honey. Fantastic alternative to heavy, cream-based mashed potatoes.
