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

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.

Excellent!

Everyone loved these sweet potatoes, I followed the recipe strictly and they came out great.

I would like to make another batch and use more of a traditional honey/cinnamon flavor.

Very easy, quick prep and bake! Instant staple!

Absolutely delicious. Inadvertently didn't cover it but that was okay, as it caused the sauce to thicken just a touch. Used both whilte sweet potatoes and garnet yams, lovely color and flavor. Took about 35 mins to cook with the potatoes in 1.5 inch cubes. Stirred every 10 minutes.

So simple and delicious! The hardest part was cutting the raw Yams! Next time, I'm going to cook them a little to make them easier to cut.
Also, I used sugar fee maple syrup to accomodate a diabetic friend. I used a little more than the recipe called for! I can't imagine that they could taste any better.
